Default AJ, possible concussion.

Looks Andre's exit was possibly due to a concussion.

I think it happened earlier in the game personally.

Default Re: AJ, possible concussion.

I read that it was after a Pollard hit early in the 4th. I think AJ had the wind knocked out of him early in the game when he was slow to get up.

They were testing him for a concussion. I saw them do a neuro exam on the field.

That was a cheap shot by Pollard. He should have gotten flagged and I hope he gets suspended. That was a dirty play.

Hopefully AJ will get cleared, but it is a 2 week clearance if he does indeed have a concussion.

AJ made the catch and the other cat was bringing him down Pollard didn't have to make that hit. Hitting the one receiver in the NFL who doesn't taunt the opposition and is a credit to the NFL AND a former teammate to boot? Pollard is OFFICIALLY a piece of IS HT. He's lost any and all respect I EVER had for him. Hope an offensive lineman "accidentally" whips one of his knees.

Just curious, did you cheer when he did that as a Texan? I'd bet anything you did. I didn't cheer. I think the guy has made a living as a headhunting cheap shot artist his entire career and didn't want him in Nashville.

I'd be lying if I say I didn't cheer when he did those things. That said I've changed my tune on all players. KJax made a pretty bad hit too. He will probably be fined. Pollard needs to be suspended though since he's a repeat offender. It seems like there are a few players responsible for most of the head hunting.

I hope they come down hard on him, too.

I haven't heard of confirmation of a concussion but in the game day thread, I stated that it appeared to me that it was probably the case.

If it is confirmed that AJ suffered a concussion when on that pass reception, he fell on his back while the back of his head bounced hard off the turf.

Of course instead of being transported by cart or at least being carefully escorted off the field to the trainer's area, he was allowed to jog into the tunnel unattended.........something that he would not even be allowed to do until well into the Concussion Protocol.

As I posted in the game day thread, it reminded me of when Ben Tate obviously had a severe ankle injury (multiply fractured as later confirmed) and he was encouraged to walk off the field unsupported when it was obvious that his foot could not support any weight. He collapsed after taking a few steps, at which time the medical staff held him up and put him on the cart.

I've gone through all the concussion implications before in the Deandre Hopkins thread. Most of it will apply to Andre, other than this will apparently be his first formally diagnosed concussion.

No real "doom and gloom." Just that I am very set back by the cavalier approach that has been taken for a potential concussion on one of our so-called most valued players (as per the team's own repeated declarations). Of course, no one should be surprised if AJ does not make it back for a couple of games.

Bernard Pollard basically exists to injure players who are more talented than he is. I guess everybody is here for a reason.

I hate to disagree here, but it was a good hit. Pollard tried to knock the ball loose. If I remember the play correctly he did not hit him in the head and he did not hit him while he was out of bounds. Just a good hard football hit. Andre got hurt when he landed hard on the ground and hit his head.

Oh, and never wish an injury like that to any player - not even Finnegan or Incognito... AJ did the right thing to Finnegan without endangering his career...

Default Re: AJ, possible concussion.

Pollard did hit him in the head--Pollard's crown to the side of AJ's head when AJ was going out of bounds with another defender tackling him lower. Maybe different plays, but I do know that Pollard did hit him in the head.

I actually miss the good old days when you could go headhunting. The rules today are too sissy-fied.

I've never liked hitting a player that was already tackled. Make the big hit to get the tackle, but don't do it to a player on his way down.

I cheered hard for Pollard when he was with the Texans. I freely admit I'm extremely biased, also.

I think they should come down hard on him because of how the rules are written and it wasn't a big hit to make a play. It was a hit to a guy that was already tackled.

Honestly, I MAY have. I won't pretend I didn't, BUT those cheap shots weren't against men who had been his TEAMMATES for four damn years whom he knows personally. Call me a hypocrite right now if you like. I have no ISSUE with some guy delivering a hard hit. But this one wasn't called for. I hope when they play later this season in Tennessee someone is willing to sacrifice a game check to let Pollard know that cheap shots against the guy who helped pay your salary for 4 years warrant a response.

I also noticed on that play that Schaub's throw appeared to be short and AJ had to stop and turn his body to the ball for it to be catchable against the sideline, putting him in a very vulnerable position when hit no matter what.

I've said that here at work at least 6 times today...QBs are selling their WRs out with poor throws that lead them to get killed.

I don't know that I really agree with this, although he does do it. Pollard stuffs the run and minimizes success of the running game, & that is his purpose. He also happens to be careless about fouling defenseless receivers & sometimes QBs.

Antonio Smith is careless about jumping offsides and/or losing his temper, but that's not why McNair pays him.
