You're in a position where you can sit AJ out for a couple/few weeks!!! DO IT!!! I don't care how much your tix set you back. The chance he comes back later on in the playoff run, the better.

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?

But he should be 100% come next season right ?

Default Re: AJ has Mild Hamstring Strain

The only reason I would think bringing him back before the playoffs would be if the game against the Titans would give us the best record in the AFC. If we get to that game, and are in the position to clinch home field for the playoffs, we need Andre on the field if the training staff and him feel comfortable.

I realize how hamstring injuries are prone to recur, but you can't play scared. If home field is on the line, we should seize every opportunity to take it. I can't imagine how opposing teams will deal with Reliant Stadium if the fans put on the same performance they did against the Falcons.

He looked destroyed after they help him off the field.
Agreed. It will take him 2 games before he is back.

I don't know how your "irrespective of their injuries" comment pertains to my post.

I can buy a "resting your starters" thing in week 17 but I expect us to be out there entertaining the crowd. *Especially* Andre who looks as rusty as can be after missing several weeks. There's a lot of season left in 4 games. Keep the engine running, keeping it nice and warm. A cold engine all but guarantees an early exit.

This is good news. Lots of rest, build him back up and get the hammy ready.

Because he needs to be ready to go BEAST MODE in the playoffs.

I'm hoping just like everyone else. If he had the classic surgical repair of the originally injured tendon, I would feel quite confident of that. With this somewhat "experimental" approach, the ultimate outcome is dependent on if and how much effect the total release of the tendon might have on the ultimate strength of the group of hamstring muscles and stability of the knee in general. If the aforementioned concerns do not materialize, he should be able to come back as Superman. We won't know for sure until sometime between training camp and next season.

The bold is what really bothers me about bringing him back before he's 101% ready ..... I dont want to see him suffer an injury that could compramise the remainder of his career by bringing him back when he's just not ready.

While I hope you're right, I'm thinking we'll slip up somewhere along the way. Most likely this weekend in Cincy or against that dang Cam Newton.
