mario williams Texans season over. Is Mario's over too?

  Mario Williams appears to be headed to his third straight Pro Bowl.  But his season could end prematurely on the heels of Monday night’s heartbreaking loss to the Ravens.

  Gary Kubiak says the Texans team doctors are evaluating whether Williams should be shut down for the rest of the season due to a sports hernia that has bothered him for the last few weeks.

  “If Mario can help us win, if he can play 25 to 30 plays which he played last night, then we want him to play and we’ll do everything we can to get him to game day,” Kubiak said during his Tuesday press conference.

  “If our doctors think that is not possible and that we would hurt Mario in the long haul, then we will do what’s right by Mario.  So that continues to be evaluated.”

  Williams is tied for 7th in the AFC with 8.5 sacks this season.   However he hasn’t recorded a sack since getting an injection in his groin shortly before the Texans played the Eagles on December 2nd. 

  The five year veteran started Monday night’s game at Reliant Stadium but spent much of the second half watching from the sidelines.  He was used on some passing downs late in the game but did not record a tackle during the game.

  Kubiak said Monday’s loss to the Ravens took a physical toll on his team.  Starting RG Mike Brisiel left the game with a calf injury.  And backup WR David Anderson also left with a hurt shoulder.
