Default AJ not back for another month?

Now they're projecting Nov. 18th against NO? I think everyone was assuming he'd be back next week, but that is apparently not the case. Was his injury more than just a sprain?

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

This seems to be the way the Texans treat all their players injuries as how it pertains to disclosure to the fans...they don't come across as honest. One instance or two really bad projections seem to be an honest mistake, but this is really becoming a trend.

Another month? That is disheartening. I guess I would rather take our time and make sure he is completely healed for down the stretch.

Cant say im not suprised. The only thing that I can count on since this team's inception is the lack of truth in the injury reports.

It all started with Boselli and it appears to be continuing now with the AJ and Mathis situations.

If true, that is pretty frustrating. I don't see the sense in hiding the severity of these injuries. It isn't like they are keeping the week's opponent "off guard."

All it does is make them look like they don't know what the hell they're doing (especially with how Mathis' injury went) and incompetent.

I am more scared that is misreading severity than lack of truthfulness.

If the Texans are looking like they aren't going to make the playoffs they might as well just go ahead and IR him. I don't want anything leaking over into next season.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

I will not be shocked to learn in another two weeks that AJ will need season-ending knee surgery or something along those lines. The Texans front office just unnecessarily lies to us every single time a player is injured. I find it frustrating and distasteful that they do this.

Damn, that sucks. Couldn't Matt Schaub just have gotten sacked on that play where he threw it to AJ and AJ got injured?

IIRC, DW had a degenerative knee condition and he refused to have any more operations done that really might have prolonged his career.

AJ just has a sprain/strain. The Texans are saying that he's running now but that might just be smoke and mirrors as well.

MRI results are pretty cut and dried, one way or the other. The Texans are not revealing what the results were.

Why?

I dunno . . . maybe because I feel a little insulted that they feel I can't handle the truth.

Maybe they're not trying to string the fans along but more of trying to string opposing teams along? Every team has to prepare for Andre Johnson and the Houston Texans. With Andre out, they just have to prepare just for the Houston Texans.

Then again, if it were to be an option of purchasing tickets, I'd want to try and purchase the Texans game with Andre in it rather than the one where he's injured.

I guess I can see both scenarios to be feastible ones. They know what they're doing.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

Not looking very good is it folks? Anyone want to wager the odds that some sort of surgery is in AJs near term future? If he isn't back by game 8 and it's still a problem, I suspect that they will be more aggresive about getting him ready for next year as early as possible. If that all goes down, it will suck big time.
