I think Andre will be fine but I would bring in someone anyway.

So did this MRI not end up happening today? I imagine there would be some news if it had.

The important thing, I think, that I have been learning from CND's hamstring analysis posts he's made this year is this:

The body is not made up of independent parts that work alone. Pull something over here, and it will affect something over there. If you have a length of chain that is three links...and the link in the middle is weakened, then each link on either side of the weakened link is no longer as strong as before.

As he stated with the issue of Kenny Britt (Titans WR) who blew his ACL and MCL...the injury problem prior to the blown knee was Britt's HAMSTRING. It had been bothering him off and on again, a lot.

So when your hamstring is not fully healthy, it puts a larger workload upon other nearby, connected "body parts" such as the ligaments in the knee. When you don't rest a hamstring, and get it healed up properly, you endanger the other parts around it.

IMO, and maybe I am all wrong here, Andre Johnson (if it is "just a strained hamstring") should be deactivated for the Raiders game and allowed to have time to rest the hamstring. The last thing we need is for Andre Johnson to end up succumbing to the same blown knee that hit Kenny Britt.

Time to run multiple TE sets vs. Raiders--OD, Casey, Dreesen, Graham, get 'em out there in 2's and 3's and run the ball with Foster, too. We can employ the same gameplan we used vs. Dolphins.

Default Re: AJ's Injury- MRI later today

I was under the impression that Terrell Owens had a recent injury.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying "No." Heck, he has more try in him than Randy Moss does. More physicality.

I just think Kubiak will rest AJ and use JJ, Walter and Bryant Johnson until we get AJ back.

Toying with the idea of maybe unearthing the previous star quality of T.O. is a bit intriguing, but I wonder if Kubiak thinks he needs as much normalcy on his team as he can get this year. No tinkering, no "project players." Know what I mean?

You're right my friend, the hamstrings help stabilize the knee, as well as aid the glutes in hip extension (think sprinting). They need to be healthy to achieve peak performance. Whenever any muscle is injured it stresses the surrounding muscles as they are asked to do more than their normal job. If you keep pushing something else will get injured, it's inevitable.

I also think you're right about the multiple TE sets. NE was killing it with Gronkowski and Hernandez. I'd like to see us do the same thing with our stable of really good TEs. Im also anxious to see what the other Johnson can do.

More than anything, I hope AJs injury isn't serious and I wish him a speedy recovery.

It can be something really minor, just a slight tear of the hamstring tendon, those could heal up within 4 weeks. If its a total rupture (not as likely in this case, but still possible) meaning it is not connected to the bone anymore, it would require surgery and about 6-12 weeks of rehab and recovery.

If it's a PCL tear that can be treated non-surgically (grade I-II), rehab could be anywhere from 2-3 weeks for more minor (grade I), to 6-8 weeks if more serious (grade II). If it is totally torn (grade III) and requires surgery, he would definitely be out for the season.

Default Re: AJ's Injury- MRI later today

You might remember when AJ was out 7 weeks for a PCL/MCL injury in 2007. It occurred when he was tackled around the waist (not the legs or feet being twisted) and slid down with his left leg extended/hyperextended. (This was the LEFT, not RIGHT leg.)

Begin at 40 seconds. 2007 VIDEO

OPENING HIT: In Houston, there is both excitement and dread. Excitement because the Texans are 3-1 and finally showing some toughness. Dread, because Andre Johnson injured his hamstring. The fear is that Johnson may miss a few weeks, at least. "If we have to go without him for a period, we're going to have to ask some guys to really step up to the plate," coach Gary Kubiak said.

Some in the organization were privately saying they felt Johnson's chances of playing this week were extremely slim. The interesting thing about the Texans is that after Johnson went out the team did exactly what Kubiak wanted. Everyone played better particularly the defense. If that Texans defense continues to play the way it did against Pittsburgh the Johnson injury won't be as crushing.

Default Re: AJ's Injury- MRI later today

Yeah, losing AJ is really tough, but having said that, with a healthy Foster doing his thing (and the O-line pushing the pile back a few yards) and the defense playing like it did against the Steelers, it's important not to derail too much or lose focus on beating Oakland without him. The defense *really* stepped it up after AJ went down, and we finally saw the team "finish" against a quality opponent.

When this team had less of a running game and no defense, losing AJ might have felt like a death sentence since your only chance was to win in a shootout with your passing game. But this team is strong enough to win without him now (even though obviously you'd *much* prefer to have him). JJ will need to step in and step up.

Something I just remembered ... didn't AJ sit out of practice last week (Wednesday?) Due to some "tightness"?

Wonder if this injury has anything to do with that ...

I was wondering about that too. I think the origin of all the bad turf comments were from when Welker's knee was blown out by Pollard. I can't think of any other time that's been brought up.

Rep for the sig BTW. Love it!
