Texans DE Connor Barwin's 2010 season is over after suffering a fractured right ankle in Week One, according to PFW's Texans correspondent John McClain. The injury occurred during the first quarter of Houston's victory over Indianapolis, when Barwin crashed into teammate Antonio Smith as they both pursued Colts RB Joseph Addai. Barwin, a second-round pick in 2009, recorded 4½ sacks last season.

The way we see it

As the primary backup for DRE Mario Williams, Barwin's presence in the Texans' D-line rotation will be sorely missed. Jesse Nading, an unheralded second-year player from Colorado State, saw more playing time following the injury and, barring a free-agent pickup, should be Williams' backup in Week Two.
