Texans LB Tim Dobbins’ Availability In Doubt For Saturday’s Game
The Texans couldn’t be thinner at inside linebacker heading into the playoffs, and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips admitted Wednesday he’s “worried” about Tim Dobbins’ availability for Saturday’s game against the Bengals, a day after the team put Darryl Sharpton on injured reserve with a hip problem.
Dobbins has been battling a shoulder problem over the last half of the season and was held out of practice Wednesday. Head coach Gary Kubiak said the idea was to give Barrett Ruud more reps with the first unit and also try to catch up Mister Alexander, who was re-signed to replaced Sharpton on the roster. But Phillips, speaking later, said, “I’m worried about (Dobbins) being able to play this week.”
Ruud, signed as a free after Brian Cushing was lost for the season in the fifth game, has been an able fill-in, making two big plays against the Lions on Thanksgiving Day, and he also showed his smarts subbing against the Colts.
