Astros fans get disappointing news about Lance McCullers Jr.

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. sat down for an exclusive interview on Maanav's Sports Talk YouTube channel this week and discussed the lockout and his rehab from injury. The big news from this interview came about when McCullers said, "I'm behind in my rehab. If I had to guess, I don't know if I'll be ready for opening day."

What a gut punch for Astros fans. There's no reason to overreact, there's still plenty of time before the season, even if it starts on time. But Lance is clearly a big part of the Astros' rotation, and fans were hoping he'd be ready to go to start the season. McCullers also discussed how his rehab has been impacted by the lockout, and how frustrating that's been.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
