Default Re: AJ injured

I was in the corner and the ball was a bit underthrown and I thought it was curious why aj didn't go up and meet the ball at it's highest point but he probably felt a tweak right before the ball was getting there. It looked like a minor issue to me, but everyone around me was holding their breath as soon as it happened. Demps misplayed an easy pick and did a couple of pushups.

Hopefully this is just a very minor thing and we are overreacting to it. Maybe because real football hasn't started so we have nothing else to talk about. maybe because we have led in MOST names on IR for 2 years in a row. If it is the latter and we continue this trend, when are we going to start getting some new strength and conditioning coaches?

This is reassuring to me, because AJ knows a lot about such things as he has not only been a football player for many years now but also was a sprinter in track. Actually he won his conference 100 and indoor 60 meter championships while at the U.
My point is, this is an athlete who knows a lot about sprinting and injuries associated with that activity. I'm sure he's had his share of both groin pulls & just "tweaks" in his athletic career, and has a highly tuned ability to recognize which is which. So I'm feeling a little better right now.
I agree with you..........just still concerned that this may have come about by "guarding" of his knee.

I'm feeling a little better after reading the quote that DB posted. I might have overreacted initially but hey, it's AJ and I'm shellshocked from the injury situation from last year. Get well Mr. Johnson we need you out there.

When players have an injured knee, they will often compensate by shifting away from using it, thereby causing injuries to other muscles not used to the extra load.

Its the same way that you can injure your foot, and by favoring that foot, you end up with a sore leg on the opposite side.

If AJ is insisting on playing and says his knee feels fine, but it really isn't healed fully, you could assume he might injure other areas because he can't move as his body is intented to

When you have an injury in one part of your body, you instinctively guard that injury by overcompensating with other parts of your body. That causes secondary injuries in other places. It's very common for injuries to "move up the chain". A foot injury causes you to hurt your knee. A knee injury causes you to hurt your hip or groin.

Basically, Cloak is very worried that Andre's knee isn't as healthy as everyone has been saying.

Also, when you train, part of your training is teaching your body to shut down certain protective mechanisms in the body (like the Golgi Tendon). When you get hurt, they "re-engage" and you've got to train them to shut down again but before you've done that, if you try to do things that you used to be able to do, you can hurt yourself. And again, it can move up the chain from the initial injury.

Well all I can say is that if he's favoring one leg or another it's really freaking hard to tell live because the guy is absolutely flying around the field. Not being carried off on a cart, and being allowed to walk back to the field to listen to the coaches remarks makes me think that this is just a simple groin tweak done in the heat.

Woah ! When I first read the title of this thread, I felt like my dog had died, but from reading up a bit my dog has been resurrected .

I just hope its not something that AJ is going to become prone to, getting injured all the time . It seems like once a player has their first major injury, things start to go south . I think AJ is a better player than that though, he'll pull through .

Default Re: AJ injured

It appears we are a little too sensitive to injuries, but for good reason considering it seems our team has had more than it's fair share of the injury bug.

Having said that, and even though I wasn't there and haven't seen any video, this sounds like something that probably won't be a big deal. As AJ said, tweaks happen like this from time to time. Any football player that has played at any level knows this stuff happens and you work through it.

This doesn't sound serious to me.
