I wanna preface this by saying I think Birden is an integral part of the offense and a heck of an athlete. The last thing I want to do is sound dismissive of disrespectful of a UH student-athlete. Clearly the kid has heart to make it on this team as a walk-on and to contribute the way he has.
I say that to say that stuff like this is bound to happen to a player his size. He's gotten nicked up in almost every game this season. I'm glad he's a part of the team, but I sincerely have concerns about his health. It is such a brutal game.
