Brisiel one of five Texans on All-Joe team

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 27, 2012 – 11:06 am

Texans right guard Mike Brisiel has been named the captain of USA Today’s 20th annual All-Joe Team, which “celebrates first-rate players who receive second-rate recognition.”

Here’s some of what USA Today’s Nate Davis wrote about the gritty, unassuming fourth-year lineman from Colorado State:

“He barely registered a blip despite playing two postseason games for the Texans not four weeks after breaking his right fibula, one of two weight-bearing bones in the lower leg.

“Let us be more specific. Brisiel had a player roll up the back of his right leg — a nightmare scenario for any offensive lineman while they’re engaged in a block — during an Oct. 9 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Brisiel played the next nine weeks with what he called a “hot spot” in his leg until it finally cracked Dec. 11 at Cincinnati.

“Again, let us be more specific. Brisiel broke the bone early on against the Bengals but finished the game, the one that clinched the first-ever playoff berth for the Texans. The next day, he needed six screws and a plate surgically implanted to stabilize the leg.”

Four other Texans made the All-Joe Team: running back Ben Tate, left tackle Duane Brown, defensive end J.J. Watt and outside linebacker Connor Barwin. Players are eligible for the squad only if they have never been named to the Pro Bowl.
