Well, it's not to avoid training camp. The man is in the last year of his contract and has a lot to prove this year. I'm sure he's trying to get right for the season in order to get a payday next year. We can all agree that he has been a disappointment as a 1st round pick and hasn't been among the best off-season trainers... I just don't know why that makes him the target for foolish consipiracy theories.

Well, Deljuan ought to get more playing time. Remember he was tied for the team lead in tackles for loss (sacks not included) with Mario.

I've criticized TJ over his work ethic and how he often stands up while taking on blockers, but I like his demeanor while he's on the field. He might not have won his starting position back this season, but I think he should, and will, be in the rotation. I like his attitude.

IMO, Okoye was drafted even higher than TJ and has yet to play better than TJ with the exception of a few games his rook season.

In the end, I hope TJ rehabs well from his surgery and is able to get on the practice field before the end of camp.
TJ is a DT assigned to stop the run in our D scheme as we have seen it. Off season goal after last season was to find players to stop the run. IMO he has not earned his contract. We do not have a starter type DT as of today.

Robinson outplayed all the tackles last season but didn't move up the depth chart. I was amazed that they would choose to start guys that weren't as good as him last year.

Mr. Johnson even if picked third round should be a solid back up by now and many fans would not be surprised if he is not on roster if evaluation is made on skills and not cap hit.

well at the end of the day I just think its a matter of opinions........

we can debate it back and forth all day but the fact remains its all everyones opnion at this point

I think the timing is suspect....you on the other hand dont...nuff said and we will leave it at that

but for the record i do believe he wants to play in the season during games.....I am sure he does as it is a contract year

but contract year has nothing to do with TC.......I just think the guy doesnt want to get in that houston heat and get better with his teamamtes. I am almost sure he will come during the season and try to play. bottomline I think is work ethic rivals one of the worse I have seen. And IMHO I think thats what holds this young man from being the player we all know he could be. I think thats the most frustrating part in all this

Exactly Vinny. It made me doubt the "play the best guy" mantra.

Also because of this I really hope DelJuan gets more focus during TC. He's the underdog I'm pulling for to become a starter someday.
I was questioning if he is a bad influence. I would not want to have a young, impressionable player get a locker next to his. I'm with ya on DelJaun. I like him.

Default Re: Travis Johnson had hernia surgery

The move is about par for Travis Johnson's career as a Texan. So I can't say I'm really surprised. I am however, excited about Robinson and Cody being able jump a notch up, especially Robinson.

I guess we were all hoping that maybe being in a contract year, the increased talent and depth on the DL, and a DL coach who has a history of getting guys playing upfield would prove light a fire under TJ. Still same 'ol TJ.

I think the reason he's had so many chances is you always want your first rounders to succeed because wehter you picked them or not it reflects on the franchise. Not to mention the salary dumped into them. Even prior to this I'm not so sure a lot of people were expectinga big jump in production from Travis, I think those expectations are on Amobi. If he doesn't take off this year I'm almost expecting us to look at another 1st round DT.

Did you read the article by Mark Berman? TJ said he went to a specialist in St. Louis to determine the cause of his injury issues and that is when the sports hernia was discovered and surgically repaired three weeks ago!
This is not that uncommon and it is a good thing that it is taken care of now.
He should miss no more than the first 2 or 3 weeks of TC. And, he will be more fit than in any of the past few years.

Give a guy a break for being human!

First off, if the Texans were counting on this guy going into this season, which were not, we would be in serious trouble.

Secondly, fellas, I had this surgery a year ago. I can STILL feel the discomfort of the surgery to repair the hernia. I felt shots of pain for months following this procedure. He'll be on pain meds alone for atleast until training camp. Horrible thing to happen to him in his contract year cause he could be headed for PUP and if he has a poor season, maybe out of the league.

Thank you for bringing this up. Here is the link to the original article in which Johnson talks about his situation:

http://www.myfoxhouston.com/dpp/spor...ohnson_surgery

as you mentioned it was discovered that he had a sports hernia after he went to a specialist. prior to that it was thought to be multiple injuries in his mid section. This specialist put it all together and discovered that he needed this surgery. That doesn't sound like he planned this so he could get out of work.

From the Berman story:
Quote:
It's been a big burden," Johnson said. "I had to get a lot of stuff done to it as far as shots just to be able to get out of the bed every morning.

"Now that we finally got some answers, as far as what's going on and got it somewhat fixed I think, that's a great thing."

Johnson said his condition contributed to his inability to stay healthy.

"My body started breaking down with the hamstrings and the groins," Johnson said. "Everything was over-compensating for the fact that I had a hernia.

"It just took its toll on my body. I went to go see a specialist in St. Louis and that's what it came out to be."
Bergman mentions in the article that several injuries that relate to this have bothered Johnson for the past few years.

It is entirely possible that getting his body right could help both his work on and off the field. According to Johnson, he's been in considerable pain for some time.

I don't understand why some think he's this locker room cancer, money grubbing flop. It seems to me that he's the dog in this organization from a fan perspective. His draft position is only one factor. He's played arguably out of position his entire time with Houston. He's played with what we now know is a cronic injury for much of his time as well.

I remain optimistic that he can be a solid contributor. I think if healthy he could be a key member of the rotation. We'll have to wait and see. At least many of you can feel good that this may be his last year as a Texan. I hope for his sake that it is. I would rather play for a team who's fan base appreciates me.

What the heck has there been to appreciate? The guy gets dogged out by his own coach in press clips and you expect fans to give him a "attaboy" when he's done practically NOTHING during his time here?

While he did have a injury that does require surgery, TJ has done NOTHING here that gives him any kind of benefit of the doubt....maybe if he kept himself in better shape he wouldn't have had this injury or other nicks, strains, and pains, instead he showed up out of shape year after year.

exactly......its a pattern we all see here thats the prob
not just from this one time and this st louis hernia thing......I hear the "he went to a specialist 2 weeks ago" arguement....but jeez its been years and just decide to go 2 weeks a go......why not a month or 2 ago???

Why did our team doctors not pick up on this? Why did he have to see a specialist to figure out that he had a sports hernia, are they that hard to diagnose?

Maybe it's a "boy who cried wolf" thing......players who constantly complain about injuries, they simply stop taking them serious anymore.

Hell, that kinda crap goes back to J.R. Richard. The Houston sports doctors mis-diagnosed his STROKE! You would think in a town that brags about having a world-class med center we could do better than some of these quacks that our pro teams have hired.

I'd be curious to see just what a healthy T.J. would be like. I'd like to find out that - kinda like Mario and his foot problems - he's hell when he fully healthy. I'd hate for him to be wearing a different uniform when I found that out.

If he still under-performs after he's "finally healthy" then we kick him to the curb. We have all season to evaluate.
