Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

This sucks hard. He was injured on an insignificant play during garbage time and now we have to go another month without our best weapon.

At least Davis has stepped up nicely, Walter is playing well also, and hopefully Jacoby really does make it back.

What's going on with Mathis and his injury?

Davis has definitely eased the pain a little since the loss of Johnson. Wish we could say the same for the Dayne Train. I dedicate this next beer to keeping Ahman healthy and productive tomorrow!

I dunno . . . maybe because I feel a little insulted that they feel I can't handle the truth.
I bet you feel a little insulted that the US faked the moon landing as well. And that we're still hiding all of those UFO's at area 51.

Just because Dale Robertson is speculating an additional month of recovery with absolutely no evidence provided to back it up doesn't mean it's true if that's not obvious enough. Where did he get his MD again?

Seriously, all the conspiracy theorists are laughable. Here's a newsflash, even knowing Andre's exact diagnosis, reviewed by Dr. Andrews himself, would not give you an exact timetable for a return. Everyone's injury will be slightly different, and everyone's body is going to respond differently to said injury. Add to that some people will play with more discomfort than others and you shouldn't have too much of a problem seeing why it's very difficult to predict how long it will take a player to return from a serious injury. Not only would 99% of Texans fans not be able to decipher a highly specific diagnosis, or care for that matter, but it wouldn't allow them to put any different timetable on his return than we've already been given even if they could understand it.

As of Wednesday Coach Kubiak, who is not a doctor but talks to the team trainers and Andre daily, said:
(on the status of WR Andre Johnson) “You know, Andre (Johnson) ran today. He was out here right before practice and did a bunch of running. He’s made a lot of progress. I think we’re very, very encouraged in what we are seeing. I think as far as this week goes, he would still be very, very doubtful, but I think we were right on schedule with what we were thinking. Hopefully, next week we’re looking at getting him back.”

I feel Kubes has been very honest and upfront with Andre's status and has given us no reason to doubt him. Why throw out a "smokescreen"? So opposing teams a few weeks down the road can start preparing for his comeback? He said they expected it to take 2-5 weeks at the onset of the injury, this is the fourth week. If he's off a week or two and it takes Andre 6 weeks instead of 5 you can crucify him for not having a crystal ball.

If they do more tests and update Andre's status to having a torn ligament and being out for the season, I'll eat my crow on this and not be very happy with the Texans medical staff but I think it's ridiculous to assert that Coach Kubiak and even Andre himself are feeding us a line. The Texans aren't stringing us along, Andre's recovery is stringing us along.

Well, I hope you're right, Fox. I want AJ back on the field more than anything. But I can't hide my suspicion that they're not telling us everything.

Sounds like speculation from the Article and not fact. A Knee Sprain is a Knee Sprain and this shouldn't be major, unless our doctors didn't do a good job of diagnosing the problem than maybe its time to get new ones. I hope he returns for the Tennesse game so we can blow dem suckas out of the water.

Well. You know... personally... I don't care if they're flat out lying to us or not. Why should they tell us exactly when people are going to be healthy and exactly what their injuries are? I kinda prefer them lying to us.

I hope AJ is fine. And I hope he's back soon.

But... I'm not going to listen to anything anyone says about how good he feels or how healthy he thinks he is. I'll believe he's back when I seem him lining up and running at full speed and taking hits and playing like he always has.

I mean, can you imagine going into battle and before the battle telling the enemy where your forces are and how strong they are? I don't even really understand the point of the press asking the questions to begin with.

This just seems strange...

If AJ needs surgery, you get it done as soon as possible due to recovery time. What is the point in waiting around?

It just amazes me the road blocks put in front of our Franchise.

Sometimes, you just gotta let it go...

We are so due to have things go our way...

Oh well, I am going to drink another beer....

At least my 800 didn't crap out tonight, been having problems with it for the last month or so.

Good night everyone...

He'll be ready when he is, as for the article it sounds like mere speculation.

As another poster mentioned earlier, the last official word from Kubes was that things were looking very very good. The article quoted no one, and just said don't be suprised if he's not back next week.

Also there are many coaches who play around with their injury report for the reason you mentioned above.

I couldn't find the link, but didn't Kubiak report that AJ was looking better and was out running and didn't he intimate that he may be ready next week? Not sure how Robertson got his information but he didn't quote anyone.

We need him back. We are a under .500 team without him and I bet we leave with more than 6 points after 4 trips to the redzone with him just in there.

Walter showed up and played today, but Andre is just a plain weapon man, and when he had a actual QB throwing to him he was a top 5 receiver and finally he was being mentioned with the other elite WRs.

I noticed one thing...Andre was all alone on the sideline and he looked pissed.
