I really can't blame AJ though. I also have Harrison and Boldin! EEKS! My WRs went down fast and hard. I also lost Addai. Regardless, I am 5-1, thanks to A Peterson and K. Brown.

I hope AJ will be back this week. Not because of FF, but because he is a TEXAN through and through, and will help get our guys out of their funk. We need him!!

Cutting was the main concern with AJ, good at least to see that he's somewhat able to.

This really sucks. We finally have a real NFL QB to get AJ the ball, he gets injured and misses a majority of the season. Very frustrating.........

How many games as AJ really missed? Four (Indy, Atlanta, Miami, Jax)? That isn't the majority of the season.

IF the Texans are being honest with us (and that's a big 'if'...seriously, look at it, it's really big).

They have had a history of being less than forthcoming about injuries. My take is that they are scared it could hurt ticket sales. JMO.

Man, I was really hoping for Sunday! Well I will be starting Andre Davis for fantasy! I really belive he will get in the EndZone!

I wonder how much, if any, rust will show on AJ upon his return.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

Eh, I don't know why everyone is so pessimestic lol I understand not getting hopes up and all but he never said he was out or even close to it. According to Kubes, AJ did cutting at full speed he didn't practice with any of the guys TODAY but that doesn't mean for sure he won't play until they say so.

That is the way I see it. Playing fantasy a lot of guys on the injury list sound like they are not going to play(Mainly because the coaches know its a advantage to make the other coach worry about it) and then end up playing and it kills me some time trying to guess it. so of course Kubiak is never going to say "He's going to play." most of the time its going to be "I hope he's able to play" or "I'm not ready to say yet." Especially with a game changer as big as Andre, if it was a guy like D.Anderson he might be more frank with it.

(on the chances that WR Andre Johnson will play Sunday) “I have a hard time telling you that today. Everything is so good; the rehab process and everything he’s doing is so positive, but ya’ll know as well as I do until you step out here on the field and do it, it’s hard to make that call. I would say, let’s wait and see to tomorrow, let’s see if he does get some plays in with the team. You know, he looked pretty close to full speed, so we’ll see.”

(on WR Andre Johnson’s status) “He ran again today. He did more cutting and those type of things. He still did not work with the football team, so we’ll see. I think he’s day-to-day and he’s just waiting any day for us to turn him loose with the guys as far as getting involved in the football part of it, but he’s running at full speed and cutting at full speed. We’ll just have to make the best decision for him, but he’ll be day-to-day.”

So I'll just cross my fingers. If he's running at full speed and cutting it sounds like the only question is is if he can take a hit. Sounds like he'll be a gametime decision.

We have enough fire and weapons to flame the meatballs.

It would be nice to see AJ on the field, but our guys have his back.

This thing with AJ has me worried . We need him back ASAP . With the way Andre Davis has been playing (except for the dumass play last week) , and Kevin Walter is looking better every game IMO , we could have us a mean trio of receivers .

Wow I forgot about him . Thats even better . We could have a set of receivers that rival the old Oilers squads from the late 80s and early 90s IMO .

Well the way it's looking it will be a majority. 4 games plus maybe this week and next. He had a great start and with a legit QB he was in All-Pro form. Don't worry about me, I'm just venting.

Default Re: AJ not back for another month?

Here's the latest, most specific information from Megan Manfull:


Quote:
Andre Johnson said he remains frustrated at how long his rehabilitation is taking. For the first week or two after the injury, Johnson used to walk into the locker room in his immobilizer saying, "I might play this week." He could hardly bend his knee and everyone knew he wasn't going to go.

Those jokes have since stopped. Johnson had no idea it was going to take him more than a month to get back on the field.

"There's nothing funny about it anymore," he said.

Johnson said he was told by Dr. Walter Lowe that rehabilitation on an injury as serious as his takes about six weeks. Johnson just completed four weeks, which means Johnson will likely miss at least two more weeks. Then the Texans have to decide if they bring him out against Oakland or allow him to rest through the bye week and return against the New Orleans Saints, when he would have even more time to rehab.

Johnson still doesn't have his full range of motion. His leg breaks down after he runs for awhile.

"I was just joking around about if I could just go home and cut my leg off and get a new one," Johnson said. "It's real aggravating. I'm just doing whatever I need to do to get on the field.

"I wish I could say in a week or two I'll be back on the field. But I can't say that. ... After I run for so long, it gets pretty weak. I'm still in that stage of getting my strength back. I'm still working on my range of motion."

With how much Johnson means to this team, there is no reason the Texans should rush him back. The rest of the receivers have grown into a solid group, offering plenty of targets for quarterback Matt Schaub.

Well, that about seals the book. No risk returning him this soon if the injury is bothering him that bad.

Give him the bye week and lets see him fresh against NO.
