Darryl Sharpton Still Not Cleared by Doctors

Houston Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton has still not be cleared by doctors according to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips in his interview on Sports Radio 610 in Houston.


Sharpton was injured in the a regular season game versus the Indianapolis Colts in a December 30th loss on the road. It was a hip injury that marked the third time in his three-year span he has ended his season on the injured reserve. He was supposed to be the player to replace DeMeco Ryans after he was traded in the 2012 offseason, but health has prevented Sharpton from taking over the starting inside linebacker position.

He is a tough player inside and compliments starter Brian Cushing well in the 3-4 defense, but with this new development this could lead to bigger issues down the road. This will be a story to watch moving forward for the Texans, especially with OTAs starting next week for the Texans.
