Darryl Sharpton unlikely to return this week

Posted Nov 8, 2012

Inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton is unlikely to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list this week.



Inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton is unlikely to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list this week.

Sharpton practiced for the second time in 2012 on Thursday, but the Texans did not wear pads like they do on most Thursdays. It sounds like Sharpton, a third-year pro who suffered a season-ending quadriceps injury last October, has a chance to return next week.

“He’s doing good,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said on Thursday. “I think he’s moving forward. I took (the pads) off today, but I liked the way we practiced. The next step for (Sharpton) is to get in his pads.

“I think to say that he’s going to be ready to go this week, I don’t think we’re there yet. I know I’m probably early to say that, but I just think it’s the smart thing right now because I think he needs a few more days of work and make sure he comes out of one week clean. But he’s had two good days.”

The Texans have until Week 13 to move Sharpton to the active roster. Otherwise, he will remain on the PUP and not be able to play this season.
