Default No Andre for Titans game

And......we are royally screwed:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...s-at-the-most/

Quote:
Texans receiver Andre Johnson has missed two games since suffering a hamstring injury in Week Four, and doctors have told him he could miss as many as four more games. But Johnson is more optimistic.

They say it could take up to six weeks at the most, Johnson said today on SportsRadio 610. But I dont think it will take me that long.

Johnson said hes ahead of schedule so far, but hes not back to full speed yet.

Im headed in the right direction, Johnson said. I just want it to heal faster. Right now its still weak; its not as strong as it used to be.

The Texans are 0-2 without Johnson, and coach Gary Kubiak said its become a lot easier for opposing defenses to shut down their passing game without having to account for Johnson.

Were getting played different, Kubiak said. Theres a level of consistency when Andres on the field with what people try to do. I dont think it has affected where Matt [Schaub] goes with the ball. [Sunday] we went toe-to-toe with a dang good team, and we needed a new hero. Until Andre gets back, someone has got to assume that responsibility.

Whoever assumes that responsibility, everyone in Houston is hoping its a short-term role.


WOOHOOO!!!! Another excuse to keep Kubiak after the season.

I say just sit him until after the bye. I hope Andre wants to get out there soon, but having him back fully for those last 6 games will most likely be huge. I really would like to sign MSW considering Bryant Johnson is just an extension of the offensive line at this point, but we're looking at at least 2 weeks to get him up to speed.

I usually listen to what they say and multiply the severity by 4 (might have to bump it up to 5)

Well that stinks. Am I the only one who's noticed that whenever Bryant Johnson is in the game it's almost a guaranteed run every time? Time to take the training wheels off of these guys and give them chances to make plays.

Should have just said he was active to make them game plan for him I mean shit at this point our most dangerous player in the game would be the threat of Andre Johnson sitting on the bench dressed out. Besides it isn't like we need to bring Trindon Holliday to games apparently.

He'll miss three games. He's already running. Boy he sure is headed in the right direction. Maybe he will return to practice next week.

Andre makes the offense work. It's really that simple. Foster is a great running back, but he can't carry the offense without Dre.

The next few games are going to be tough.


btw, I didn't expect him back very soon either.

I agree...... For AJ too have even a little doubt about his body isn't a good sign. He's normally extremely confident dealing with injuries, but you can tell he doesn't know what to expect with this one.

I heard the interview this article was based on live this morning on 610 as he was with Vandy and Lopez when he said this stuff this morning.

To be fair...he didn't say it WILL take 6 weeks, said it COULD

I don't know about answering any questions, but if we win this game it's huge in a lot of ways. For one, we would be 2 games up on the Titans in the division which is the first tie breaker after head to head. The best the Titans would be able to do is tie us in head to head meetings if we pull this out.
