The next time we AJ will be in limited action against Tennessee, or the playoffs. TJ's job just got a little harder.

Save him for the playoffs!!!!

Seriously, in 9 seasons, he's never even sniffed the playoffs. Let him rest and get ready for the biggest game of his life. I have a gut feeling that he would not only rise to the occasion, but carry this offense on his back if he had to.

Seriously, this. No freaking point in having AJ play another snap before our home playoff game. We don't need him at all, just win 1 more game and we lock up the division. No need to risk him for the last 4 games, he's too important and we need him to play against the Steelers, Ravens or Jets in the first round. Save him until the games matter. If we drop 3 without him and are playing for the division on Jan 1, then play him, but I don't see the Titans winning out anyways.

MODS, I know everyone is up with all that's happened. But is it possible to consolidate all these AJ threads (at least the more recent ones)? Too much repetition occurs and the continuity of thought is lost. Thanks.

Simply shut him down until the playoffs. Can't justify running the risk of not having AJ in our first ever playoff game. At least one will be at home and even if we have to go on the road the next week he's earned the right to experience this.

Default Re: AJ has Mild Hamstring Strain

shut him down until the playoffs? You saw how sluggish he looked against Jacksonville. He needs to get in game shape, not playing for almost an entire season will put him in good shape for the playoffs. I hope he can play in atleast the last 2 games of the season just to get in shape and hopefully test the hammy a bit. I really feel sorry for the guy I know he wants to kill it right now. He looked destroyed after they help him off the field.

Not to mention Tennessee plays the Saints next sunday, that will help us out.

I get that he needs the reps to get back in game shape but with four more games left I don't think we've got the time for him to heal and get in game shape. We'll be lucky if he can just heal and be able to go come playoffs.

Of course it's all speculation on our part. We don't know what AJ feels like or when he'll be ready.

I won't be buying into the "save him" talks. Our season tickets were expensive so I'll be expecting our high-dollar stars to play if not injured. Also, Andre looked average out there. He needs reps.

Default Re: AJ has Mild Hamstring Strain

Keep in mind that 1/2 of all hamstring strains will be reinjured within 1 year. But, more strikingly, 1/3 of all hamstring strains will be reinjured within the 1st two weeks after return to activity. Putting AJ back on the field in 2 weeks will not guarantee that he will play in any playoff game. Remember, he must now be considered as being treated for and rehabbing from two separate hamstring injuries.

On the other hand, letting him rest until the playoffs does not guarantee freedom from reinjury, but it does guarantee him more time to heal, and that he deservedly sees the field at least one playoff game.........whether he completes it or not. Under either of these scenarios do I expect him to be crisp as before his 1st injury?........No..........and that will not be entirely based on the fact that he will have been out of shape. IF he is able to return to the Andre that we have known, it is unrealistic to believe that will happen before next season.

Then, of course, he's Superman, right?

This is my perspective. My entertainment is not more important than putting the team in the best position to win a playoff game. And he certainly deserves a chance to play at least one post season game in his likely HoF career.

It's not our decision as fans and paying customers, though. It's ultimately on AJ, Kubiak, and the training staff, to make the best decision for the player and team.
