    might as well be the one to start this since it could be important..

    per obsi (who's at TC), he limped off with what looked like a pulled groin

    This is so not what we need. Maybe it is not very bad and he has plenty of time to recover, he can sit out the entier preseason if need be.

    I hope this is not an injury sustained compensating for a guarded knee recovery.

    I don't get it, I thought yesterday they said they were going to hold AJ out today yesterday for precaution?

    Maybe Chris Brown, too, but I thought I remember Kubiak saying they wouldn't let AJ run on the turf as a precaution

    Was this practice indoors or out?

    Poor AJ. I don't even understand why they waited so long on the arthroscopic thing during the offseason. Wasn't he all healed up at the end of the year last year?

    From Nick on HT.com:
    The worst part of this now is the quotes.

    If Kubiak and AJ come out and say everythings fine, he is DTD - because of their history - we all freak out and believe he might miss significant time

    If Kubiak and AJ come out and say smoethings seriously wrong - we all freak out and start saying he might be out the whole year

    The FO has primed us to expect the worst, even when they tell us the best

    AJ is arguably our MVP so certainly none of us want to hear this crap. If it's a groin injury, that's not good. That can be a nagging injury which takes time to heal from and often subject to reinjury.
    We'll just have to wait and see, hope it's not too serious.

    I never have figured out why everyone expects during the regular season for the coaching staff not to be a little lacking in discosing injuries. They donot want other teams to be able to game plan for players who might be out, this what has become of the NFL thanks to belichik and even Shanahan to a large degree.

    Now I am hoping that it being training camp that they are a little more forthright.

    He was having a great practice, catching everything.

    The injury occured late in practice on a deep ball that was slightly underthrown. Demps was covering AJ and both of them jumped up for the ball. When AJ came down he kind of hopped funny on his left leg and immediately grabbed his groin area. I followed him in the binocs over to the trainers table and they didn't ice it - he was just talking to Bastin and in obvious pain. He had a very noticeable limp and tight walk as he left the field.

    A couple of times in practice we were talking about bottling up AJ and not re-opening him until Pittsburgh since he was making things look so effortless out there. Now this sux.

    Mike Bell went down early with a hammy just in case no one mentioned it.

    Is this good news or bad news?
    On the one hand, they let him walk off the field, which seems to be good news
    On the other hand, not icing it implies they think its torn, rather than pulled, right?

    Yep, hopefully nothing too serious. It bummed out my ride home that's for sure.

    From what he's saying, he felt it tighten up as he was running. At full speed it looked more like it happened when he extended for the ball.
