Thanks for passing the link along, TC. You're right, of course. As much as we all want the diagnosis and time frame RIGHT NOW, there's just no way to know what's going on in AJ's knee and when it will allow him to return.

If there's one thing I've learned about doctors over the years, it's that for all the great medical advancements that have been made over the years, there's still far more we don't know about the human body than what we do.

Default Re: Andre Johnson expected to be out 5 weeks

With a sprain like this you'll get micro tearing in the ligament and the MRI will show the extent of the tearing. I'll go on record as saying it will depend on how the sub receivers looked in practice and whether or not AJ has a greatly increased chance of making the injury worse or sustaining a different injury to another part of the knee by playing this Sunday before Kubiak makes a decision. I guess we'll just have to wait til game time. If he's out Sunday and we play well on O, he might miss a couple of weeks.

Default Re: Andre Johnson expected to be out 5 weeks

Well he's definetly out for one week as most of you know, but as for 5 weeks, I don't think so. I've had a similar sprain before and it took about 3 weeks to heal(BP also stated this). Sure, maybe his sprain is more serious, but that's my insight that I have to offer on that subject. I think our real concern going into this game vs. the Colts would be the health of other players such as Green and TJ. Any word on these two yet? If we are without green AND Aj this week, things could get ugly(unless dayne runs them over like he did last year). And I'd love to have TJ bringing that inside heat to PM too.

Here's my write up about it:

How Many Games Will Andre Johnson Miss?

Lots of people who read PFT also read FanHouse, so I figured I try to put out there everything that we know right now so people would know what the deal is and not just go panicking through the streets shreiking 5 weeks 5 weeks aaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy!

Default Re: Andre Johnson expected to be out 5 weeks

I am more on the idea he'll miss closer 2-3. But we all know for sure he'll be out this week and we'll learn more on friday. Personally i think Kubiak and Co will err on the side caution.

Here's hoping for the best.

If it is all gossip over there why don't they slap a "National Sports Enquirer" banner on it and sell it at grocery store checkouts?

Actually, they put that information in a section called "rumor mill."

There is so much information and misinformation out there that it is hard to sort out the difference.

Default Re: Andre Johnson expected to be out 5 weeks

I choose to take the "glass is half full" approach to AJ being hurt. It will give JJ or KW or someone else the chance to stand up and make some plays.

Also, Schaub has had a week to have practiced with the guys who will be on the field Sunday, so timing will have been worked on as well.

That said...get well soon AJ! I rarely break out the jerseys, but I'll be wearing my #80 Steel Blue jersey Sunday for you!

I am in the crowd of 1-2 weeks. I think there is a small glimmer of desperate hope on my part he will be back this Sunday, but that's my hope talking. I think by Atlanta maybe Miami at the latest. But hey, that's just me speculating.

He needs to get one of those hypobermic (or however the heck you say and spell it) chambers.

Personally, I am not sure that the scuttlebutt is correct. Today is the day they are suppose to take his knee out of the immobilizing thing and see how it is feeling. Given that there was no immediate swelling, it suggests no tear, and so I would think that his return would be based on how it is feeling and not some sort of guestimate. The injury I heard that he had is one that has no specific time frame for return--that it differs from person to person.
Exactly. If you actually read what PFT said, is that this is what is being reported, but it could be a bunch of crap. It didn't say that he will definitely miss 5 weeks and that he has a serious injury. Eli was supposed to miss a month and didn't miss a game.

Profootballtalk.com can't make it more obvious that they hear a rumor a basically just print it with little no confirmation of facts.

1) the section is called rumormill
2) they call themselves rumormongers
3) the Andre Johnson article uses schuttlebutt

Effectively, they go beyond what National Enquirier does in letting you know we are not a "real" or "legitimate" news source. ESPN, FOx etc, use "insiders" who are basically sports gossip columnist, but attempt to pawn these guys off as doing journalism. Which one do you want?

Think about it. He has a sprained knee with no swelling. He was walking around fine after the game. The world champs are coming into town.

Now he is going in to be re-examined on Friday. For what??? To get authorization to play maybe, I don't know, this Sunday?

He might play this weekend. I don't mean to give false hope to Texans fans or anything, but it might be a game planning ploy. Maybe we are trying to catch the Colts off guard.

Or... "Maybe I'm Craaaazzyyy..."

I swear no one reads my posts sometimes...

Does anyone feel the same way about this?
