This is so not what we need. Maybe it is not very bad and he has plenty of time to recover, he can sit out the entier preseason if need be.

I hope this is not an injury sustained compensating for a guarded knee recovery.

Was this practice indoors or out?

Poor AJ. I don't even understand why they waited so long on the arthroscopic thing during the offseason. Wasn't he all healed up at the end of the year last year?

From Nick on HT.com:
Quote:
Wide receiver Andre Johnson pulled up after a long route at training camp practice Saturday morning. He limped off the field and received attention from the Texans' training staff. Afterward, he said that he didn't hear any pop, but his groin tightened up on him.

We'll have a full report, including quotes from 'Dre and coach Gary Kubiak, on HoustonTexans.com shortly.

Thanks,

Nick Schenck
Editor, HoustonTexans.com
The worst part of this now is the quotes.

If Kubiak and AJ come out and say everythings fine, he is DTD - because of their history - we all freak out and believe he might miss significant time

If Kubiak and AJ come out and say smoethings seriously wrong - we all freak out and start saying he might be out the whole year

The FO has primed us to expect the worst, even when they tell us the best

AJ is arguably our MVP so certainly none of us want to hear this crap. If it's a groin injury, that's not good. That can be a nagging injury which takes time to heal from and often subject to reinjury.
We'll just have to wait and see, hope it's not too serious.

Default Re: AJ injured

I never have figured out why everyone expects during the regular season for the coaching staff not to be a little lacking in discosing injuries. They donot want other teams to be able to game plan for players who might be out, this what has become of the NFL thanks to belichik and even Shanahan to a large degree.

Now I am hoping that it being training camp that they are a little more forthright.

Default Re: AJ injured

He was having a great practice, catching everything.

The injury occured late in practice on a deep ball that was slightly underthrown. Demps was covering AJ and both of them jumped up for the ball. When AJ came down he kind of hopped funny on his left leg and immediately grabbed his groin area. I followed him in the binocs over to the trainers table and they didn't ice it - he was just talking to Bastin and in obvious pain. He had a very noticeable limp and tight walk as he left the field.

A couple of times in practice we were talking about bottling up AJ and not re-opening him until Pittsburgh since he was making things look so effortless out there. Now this sux.

Mike Bell went down early with a hammy just in case no one mentioned it.

Is this good news or bad news?
On the one hand, they let him walk off the field, which seems to be good news
On the other hand, not icing it implies they think its torn, rather than pulled, right?

from HT.com

Quote:
Wide receiver Andre Johnson gave the Texans and a crowd of 3,721 fans at the Methodist Training Center quite a scare Saturday when he pulled up lame after running a deep route at the end of practice.

The two-time Pro Bowler appeared to favor his left groin as he limped off the field in noticeable pain. Immediately, the Texans’ training staff and team orthopedist, Dr. Walter Lowe, attended to Johnson.

On the play, Johnson attempted to come back for the ball, but was closely defended by cornerback Fred Bennett.

After the team medical staff checked out his groin, Johnson rejoined his teammates on the field before coach Gary Kubiak gave his final remarks and dismissed the team until Monday.

“I just tweaked my groin a little bit,” Johnson said. “That’s about it. Nothing really major. I’ll go in and get some treatment over the next two days and I’ll be fine.

“I didn’t tear anything or anything like that. It’s hot out here. Sometimes those things happen. You have little tweaks and stuff like that. Other than that, I’m fine. It’s no big deal. I didn’t tear anything. I slowed down actually when I felt it tighten up on me. That was a good thing. Other than that, I don’t think it will be a problem.”

Johnson missed seven games last year with a knee injury that he originally suffered in Week 2 at Carolina. That injury persisted into the offseason, requiring arthroscopic surgery.

For a team that has led the NFL in players on injured reserve the past two seasons, Johnson’s injury caught everyone’s attention. Even the fans were shaken.

“Yeah, a groan came over everybody,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “Nobody wants to see him gimping around. Like I said, we’ll get him in there, get him looked at and keep our fingers crossed and hopefully it’s nothing serious.”

Quarterback Matt Schaub checked up on his star receiver after practice to make sure he was alright.

Johnson appreciates the concern.

“You never want to see anything happen to a player,” Johnson said. “You don’t want to see any guys get injured or anything like that. But things happen. I’m just glad it’s training camp right now. It’s not the regular season.”

The important thing, Johnson said, is that he didn’t feel any tear or pop, which signifies a more serious injury.

“Normally, when you have a pull or something, you can tell when you’re running by the way it feels,” he said. “I didn’t feel anything pop or anything like that. I just felt it tighten up real tight on me. When I felt that, I just slowed down. I didn’t feel a pop or anything like that afterward, so like I said, I’m fine. I’ll get treatment for a few days and I’ll be fine.”

looks like it minor...hopefuly...fingers crossed.....knock on wood etc

Yep, hopefully nothing too serious. It bummed out my ride home that's for sure.

From what he's saying, he felt it tighten up as he was running. At full speed it looked more like it happened when he extended for the ball.
