Let's pray for the best here...he did walk off under his own power. However if he's done for the year....we're SCREWED. In this division we can survive without him if he misses a significant amount of time. However Houston will be walking with a mortal injury if he's done for the year.

Looks like Andre Johnson has a strained hamstring and not a knee injury. Hamstrings have hamstrung Texans since start of preseason.

Titan fans...

Andre Johnson hurt?
Can somebody with NFL sunday ticket or who lives in an are where the Texans/Steelers game tell me what happened. I'm sure they're talking about it and replaying it a million times. I just turned on NFL network to check the score of the Titans game, because my freaking slow connection on my computer is lagging and the game shut off, and I heard them talking about how devistating Kenny Britt's injury to the Titans is and how Andre Johnson's injury to the Texans would be even worse. Is it really a similar injury? Did it look like an ACL?

If so.. That is HUGE. Way more than evens the playing field with Kenny Britt out. Andre Johnson is their whole offense. That running game is a product of the entire defense keyed in on Andre Johnson. Any pass any other reciever on the Texans makes is because Andre Johnson was tripple covered. Matt Schaub is considered one of the better NFL QBs because Andre Johnson is on his team.

If he's out the Texans offense collapses, and the Texans don't have a great defenses. They're done.

Really hope this is true. Keep in mind it just happened, and I didn't even see it. I just heard about it for two seconds on NFL network. But as much as it sucks to hope for a guy to be hurt, if he's out for the seasons that puts us in the playoffs.

And hey we look against the Browns. CJs finally doing something, and man Cook stepped up.

I think it depends on if it is a strain or a tear. His reaction seemed much worse than a simple hamstring. However, it was not even close to Duntas blown up leg. That was gut wrenching prior to his Diva stage.

HOUSTON -- Andre Johnson will have an MRI tonight, but the tone of the Houston Texans after their win over the Steelers seemed to be one of relief.

“All I can tell you right now is we think it’s hamstring-related,” coach Gary Kubiak said of the non-contact injury suffered in the second quarter. “It’s I the lower leg. We will go and get an MRI and stuff this evening… Obviously we have to find out what’s going on with Andre.”

Kubiak said the way Johnson went down scared him.

If the Texans are without Johnson for a time, the guy in the locker room echoed the message of their coach: Everyone else will have to do a bit more.

“We lost the big guy right now, hopefully he’ll be back soon,” right tackle Eric Winston said. “But things don’t change. We run the ball, we play-action pass, we go put up points and that’s all that matters.”

The Texans have Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter as their top wide receiver options after Johnson, and veteran Bryant Johnson is likely to become involved in the rotation.

“Bryant Johnson, there is a reason we brought him in here,” Winston said. “He looks the part, he’s played the part a little bit when he’s gotten in and now’s the time for him to step up…

"Obviously we’re going to see some bigger fronts, more eight-man fronts [to stop Arian Foster]. But that’s all right. That’s going to give Jacoby Jones some more chances to make big plays down the field. Everyone’s got to do a little bit more now.”

The Texans have played 13 games since Johnson was their first-round draft pick in 2003. They are 5-8 without him.


All i can say is i hope they are right about "thinking" its a hamstring.

You at least try Moss out. I doubt he's in shape to even play. I assume we promote someone from the PS and Anderson comes in to the active roster.

Of course it's obvious I exclude you guys who post here and are solid citizens. Herv was gracious enough to speak for me, but I will echo and confirm his words.

I'm talking about that one guy that somebody else posted earlier who was EXCITED and was begging for people to update him because he said it would mean great things for his team. And I'm sure there are many others just like him, the sort of fan who was never an NFL fan before Bud Adams rolled into Tennessee with the Oilers-turned-Titans team.

Toronto, I can count on one hand how many Titans fans come here and conduct themselves properly. I need an abacus to display how many come here and try to trash us out and talk down to us just because they made it to a Super Bowl and we haven't. I'm talking about THOSE fans.

My sentiments exactly. AJ is one of the greats and if he were to miss any extended amount of time it will definitely hurt us, but this is the NFL and the coaches and player have to be ready. This offense has a lot of other weapons that needs to be better utilized imo. I think KW, Jacoby Jones, and even Bryant Johnson are capable of making plays. Kubiak has to do a better job of getting the balls to those guys. Today we had a great running game thanks to the o-line and Arian, but we need to balance things out. This is not the first time AJ has been injured so Kubiak and crew should be better prepared. The time for excuses for this regime is gone. It's put or shut up time regardless of who's playing.

GP has the statement I made during the game at the bottom of all of his posts

The important thing, I think, that I have been learning from CND's hamstring analysis posts he's made this year is this:

The body is not made up of independent parts that work alone. Pull something over here, and it will affect something over there. If you have a length of chain that is three links...and the link in the middle is weakened, then each link on either side of the weakened link is no longer as strong as before.

As he stated with the issue of Kenny Britt (Titans WR) who blew his ACL and MCL...the injury problem prior to the blown knee was Britt's HAMSTRING. It had been bothering him off and on again, a lot.

So when your hamstring is not fully healthy, it puts a larger workload upon other nearby, connected "body parts" such as the ligaments in the knee. When you don't rest a hamstring, and get it healed up properly, you endanger the other parts around it.

IMO, and maybe I am all wrong here, Andre Johnson (if it is "just a strained hamstring") should be deactivated for the Raiders game and allowed to have time to rest the hamstring. The last thing we need is for Andre Johnson to end up succumbing to the same blown knee that hit Kenny Britt.

Time to run multiple TE sets vs. Raiders--OD, Casey, Dreesen, Graham, get 'em out there in 2's and 3's and run the ball with Foster, too. We can employ the same gameplan we used vs. Dolphins.

I was under the impression that Terrell Owens had a recent injury.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying "No." Heck, he has more try in him than Randy Moss does. More physicality.

I just think Kubiak will rest AJ and use JJ, Walter and Bryant Johnson until we get AJ back.

Toying with the idea of maybe unearthing the previous star quality of T.O. is a bit intriguing, but I wonder if Kubiak thinks he needs as much normalcy on his team as he can get this year. No tinkering, no "project players." Know what I mean?

You're right my friend, the hamstrings help stabilize the knee, as well as aid the glutes in hip extension (think sprinting). They need to be healthy to achieve peak performance. Whenever any muscle is injured it stresses the surrounding muscles as they are asked to do more than their normal job. If you keep pushing something else will get injured, it's inevitable.

I also think you're right about the multiple TE sets. NE was killing it with Gronkowski and Hernandez. I'd like to see us do the same thing with our stable of really good TEs. Im also anxious to see what the other Johnson can do.

More than anything, I hope AJs injury isn't serious and I wish him a speedy recovery.

Is that similar to Foster's injury or is it worse?

It can be something really minor, just a slight tear of the hamstring tendon, those could heal up within 4 weeks. If its a total rupture (not as likely in this case, but still possible) meaning it is not connected to the bone anymore, it would require surgery and about 6-12 weeks of rehab and recovery.

If it's a PCL tear that can be treated non-surgically (grade I-II), rehab could be anywhere from 2-3 weeks for more minor (grade I), to 6-8 weeks if more serious (grade II). If it is totally torn (grade III) and requires surgery, he would definitely be out for the season.

You might remember when AJ was out 7 weeks for a PCL/MCL injury in 2007. It occurred when he was tackled around the waist (not the legs or feet being twisted) and slid down with his left leg extended/hyperextended. (This was the LEFT, not RIGHT leg.)

OPENING HIT: In Houston, there is both excitement and dread. Excitement because the Texans are 3-1 and finally showing some toughness. Dread, because Andre Johnson injured his hamstring. The fear is that Johnson may miss a few weeks, at least. "If we have to go without him for a period, we're going to have to ask some guys to really step up to the plate," coach Gary Kubiak said.

Some in the organization were privately saying they felt Johnson's chances of playing this week were extremely slim. The interesting thing about the Texans is that after Johnson went out the team did exactly what Kubiak wanted. Everyone played better particularly the defense. If that Texans defense continues to play the way it did against Pittsburgh the Johnson injury won't be as crushing.

Yeah, losing AJ is really tough, but having said that, with a healthy Foster doing his thing (and the O-line pushing the pile back a few yards) and the defense playing like it did against the Steelers, it's important not to derail too much or lose focus on beating Oakland without him. The defense *really* stepped it up after AJ went down, and we finally saw the team "finish" against a quality opponent.

When this team had less of a running game and no defense, losing AJ might have felt like a death sentence since your only chance was to win in a shootout with your passing game. But this team is strong enough to win without him now (even though obviously you'd *much* prefer to have him). JJ will need to step in and step up.

Something I just remembered ... didn't AJ sit out of practice last week (Wednesday?) Due to some "tightness"?

Wonder if this injury has anything to do with that ...

I don't know, but about 400 times yesterday they kept saying it was the same turf that took out Wes Welker...

I was wondering about that too. I think the origin of all the bad turf comments were from when Welker's knee was blown out by Pollard. I can't think of any other time that's been brought up.

Rep for the sig BTW. Love it!

Except he Andre has played on it countless times, and this is the first time something like that has happened.

That never stood in between the sports media and a trumped up story in the past...
