Erstad's hammy and Backe's shoulder

Maybe you noticed that Matt Kata replaced Darin Erstad as a defensive substitution the G84 suspended game. It's because of Erstad's hobbly hamstring.

Darin has a little nagging injury, and it was probably not best to put him on the defensive end. He’s having a hamstring problem. He’s available (to pinch hit).”

And we also get an update on former Astros Brandon Backe, who has a partial tear in his right rotator cuff. He's scheduled for surgery with Dr. James Andrews, who I'm surprised has time to take away from reconstructing Brett Favre to do the surgery in the first place, and the Astros will pick up the tab.
