Default Andre Johnson will miss OTAs

SR610: Andre Johnson will miss Texans OTA's after having arthroscropic surgery on his left knee two weeks ago. He expects to be back in time for training camp.

I don't know about y'all but this kind of scares me. No Schaub or AJ for OTAs. He would've been a key piece in the growth of all the rookie WRs.

Default Andre Johnson has knee scoped 5/2012

Stephanie Stradley ‏@StephStradley
Texans Andre Johnson: "Had left knee scope" Had no pain before scope, no pain now. No need to panic.

Andre Johnson revealed Tuesday that he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in early May.

Johnson insists he experienced no pain before the surgery, and is in no pain now. He's sitting out OTAs, but fully expects to be ready for training camp. While this doesn't sound like a major concern, surgeries are beginning to pile up for Johnson entering his age-31 campaign. He had ankle surgery last offseason, and hamstring surgery during the year. Johnson remains locked in as a top-five fantasy receiver for 2012, but his recovery is worth tracking.

Andre Johnson said he hyperextended his knee last season at Jacksonville. Called it "nothing to panic about." #Texans

Default Re: Andre Johnson will miss OTAs

That sucks, I'm wondering why he couldn't have had this surgery several months ago. This will mean more reps. for our young WR's who need them badly and it's not like AJ doesn't know what he needs to do to be ready for the season. He'll be ready on opening day.

He can still mentor the young WRs from the sidelines. I don't see this as a big deal.

Default Re: Andre Johnson will miss OTAs

While I'm not a big fan of these developments, they don't scare me. OTAs are where the rookies and the newbies learn their places in our systems. Old hands like Schaub (I didn't see where he was missing OTAs but it wouldn't surprise me) and AJ only need to knock the off-season rust off, not learn the system.

As Wolf6151 said, this gives the younguns (Yates and our baby WRing corps) more reps to become acclimated so, hopefully, they'll be sharper during training camp and preseason when new wrinkles are added to the basics

Last year, Dre said he felt "something" in pre-season but it didn't bug him for too long. Then the PIT game happened.

Much rather he get checked out in May. I ain't worried regardless. See y'all in New Orleans in Feb. 2013 though.

Well, there goes the season. We'll be lucky to go 2-14. Sometimes the breaks ain't with us boys. Might as well update the HD home theater and prepare to rent a lot of movies. Maybe the alien spaceships will land and entertain us by blowing up buildings and stuff during the football season. That would be cool.

Missing OTA's because of this means less than zero - to Andre, the rookies, and the Texans as a whole.

Missing more than OTA's because of this would be a completely different story.

there was probably some excess scar tissue... doesn't necessarily have to hurt.

It's a possibility. It's just a scope.

Andre might have gone to the doctor to get his knee checked prior to OTAs. The doctor might have seen something he didn't like and ordered the scope to prevent further damage.

I agree the timing indicates scar tissue. There has been enough time passed to have a significant amount of it, and we are far enough from TC for him to fully recover.

Default Re: Andre Johnson has knee scoped 5/2012

From PK's AFC South blog...
Quote:
Andre Johnson's bad 2011 was even worse than we thought.

Johnson missed nine games because of two different hamstring injuries.

He told Houston media today he also hurt his left knee Nov. 27 in a win at Jacksonville. That injury required a recent scope that he pledged was not a big deal.

"Nothing to panic about," Johnson said per Mark Berman of Fox in Houston. "I had it two weeks ago…

"I hyperextended my (left) knee. It swoll up. Got the swelling to calm down. I came back during offseason workouts, it swoll up again. We felt like the best thing to do was get it scoped, get it fixed…"

"I'm two weeks out from having a knee scope. I wasn't in any pain before I had it. It just kept holding fluid on it. I'm not in any pain now. My knee feels better, the swelling has pretty much gone down. Just keep doing rehab and (I'll) be ready for training camp.

"This is my tenth season. I've been through OTAs several times. I don't really feel like I'm missing anything right now."

He’s not missing anything right now. And quarterback Matt Schaub, recovering from a serious foot injury, isn’t on the field either.

In a broader sense, though, I think it’s fair to wonder if 2011 served as some sort of harbinger for Johnson.

He still ranks as one of the very best receivers in the league. But he’ll be 31 in July and going into his 10th season.

Will he face other situations this fall that make us consider if he’s starting to break down?

Or will he rebound to show three different injuries in his ninth season amounted to a blip?

A lot of elite receivers play very effectively well into their 30s. I’m expecting the rebound. But there is simply no predicting health or the timetable for when a guy reliant on his legs begins to slow.

Leaving out other guys who are still active, Pro-Football-Rreference.com says Johnson’s résumé so far is similar to receivers who averaged careers of just under eight years.

A modern player with access to better training and medicine should certainly last longer.
