HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - Wide receiver DeVier Posey may not like what former NFL wide receiver and ESPN analyst Cris Carter thinks of his Achilles injury.  Both Posey and San Francisco’s Michael Crabtree are recovering from surgery for a torn Achilles tendon.  Crabtree, who underwent surgery just six weeks ago, began his rehab this week.

“I believe it’s going to take a little more time for these guys to come back and I look for them to get healthy around November, beginning of December, and try to make that last playoff push. I’d be very, very careful with them in September and October, making sure I don’t have some type of setback on that Achilles,” Carter said on SportsRadio 610’s MaD Radio on Wednesday.

Posey may still start the 2013 NFL season on the Physically Unable to Perform list but he was hoping to return as early as September or October.  Posey is undergoing rehabilitation but was able to participate in some drills off-field during OTAs.

Posey tore his left Achilles tendon on January 13 during the Texans’ playoff loss in New England.  Posey was emerging as Texans’ third receiver last season  and possibly number-two for 2013 until his injury in the playoffs.  The second-year receiver will have to wait until the season is underway to make that push.

“The Achilles thing is difficult,” said Carter. “The wide receiver, everything starts with an explosion and elongated stance and that’s pressure on the Achilles. It’s the same thing for Crabtree in San Francisco.  We saw Suggs last year rush himself back but they are playing a different position.”
