I've always been concerned the Texans were piddling around with spin-it-right-and-it-looks-like-success during Dre's best years rather than doing what it takes to have real success against loftier goals. If Dre doesn't come back 100%, that concern will have been justified.

I'm still going to bank on full recovery though. I'm an optimist.

I don't expect him back, and completely effective until the JAX game . . . . in week 12 after the buy week.
I remember making that post way back in week 4. Now, it turns out I'll be amazed if he comes back this season at all.

I just can't stand how this team handles injury situations.

AJ could've been healthy in 8-10 weeks.

But because Garys job is on the line. The Texans/AJ chose to play with fire and if he only comes back at 75%. Then the Texans came up snakeyes on this gamble.

What's going to be really bad is if in the offseason the tendon is unable to be reattached properly. (Is this a possibility?) And AJ's career is less than what it could be, then Dr.Lowe should be tarred and feathered for letting this happen. Along with BoBBy,Gary,Rick etc...

All to save 2-3 weeks of rehab time, that's just plain stupid. IMHO

Ultimately it was Dre's decision on how to deal with the injury. Unless, folks believe Kubiak held a gun to Dre's head until the anesthesia took effect.

I think you will start to see Andre's progress slowed down in order to get him ready for the last 6 games after the bye week. There's no need to ramp him up if he still has a full 3 weeks to get ready for those games.

Don't even mess with it until the bye week. I used to be in the "Get him back, ASAP" bandwagon, but we need him well for the home stretch and his progress is incredibly slow right now it seems.

Reading CND's takes on Andre's injury has had me extremely worried from the time we found out what exactly the procedure was he had done. It would seem a full recovery may not be in Andre's future. Still I'd take a 90-95% Andre over most WR's in the league every day of the week.

I'd take a 100% Andre in 2012 over a 70% Andre for the rest of his career. If this procedure hurts his career, I hope the entire medical staff gets the axe. It's so damn shortsighted and unnecessary, I just can't believe they would do something so risky.

Where the hell you getting this 90-95% stuff?

He's only 70%, and unless I'm shown anything different, it's going to remain 70%. I don't think some of you are understanding what has taken place here.

To be fair, it was AJ's decision to take this gamble. Unfortunately, he lost.

Andre Johnson Injury: Texans WR Will Not Practice Today

Nov 02 11:02a by Ryan Van Bibber

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will not be on the field for the team’s Wednesday practice. Head Coach Gary Kubiak revealed that news to the Cleveland media in a conference call today ahead of Houston’s home game this week against the Cleveland Browns. Kubiak described Johnson’s status as day-to-day, and said that he has a chance of playing this week.

Johnson is dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered in Houston’s week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has not played since that game.

Last week, Kubiak expressed some optimism that Johnson might play in their game against Jacksonville. Johnson, however, sounded less optimistic than his coach, noting that he was still having trouble opening up his stride while running.

Texans coach Kubiak said WR Andre Johnson won't practice today, is day-to-day, has shot at playing Sunday vs. #Browns. Been out about month.
