    This is currently a link headline on SI.com

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/?eref=sinav&sct=hp_nv_a

    Though the link says this I am not getting that vibe with the linked article. I don't see where the Texans are expecting him to out a few weeks.

    Hamstrings are tricky, so yeah.

    If I had to GUESS, expect Dre to be a GTD for Tennessee and get held out, then be full throttle for JAX.

    Yeah, hammies are tough to deal with because if you come back before it's really 100% it will nag you all season. You're likely to keep aggravating it or injure something else while compensating for it.

    Get well soon, AJ!

    Get him Cushing's old Hyperbaric chamber to recover faster! And for the love of god, don't let him practice for two weeks! No need to jog or run or anything the first week. Rest, rest and more rest.

    I think that's just a preliminary report. It says his status for week 5 is in Jeopardy..... doesn't say what the nature of the injury is.

    last night Kubiak said we think it's a hammy, but until they get the MRI, it could be an ACL....... the way he grabed his knee, it looks to me like it is an ACL or a completely disconnected Hamstring.

    I will withhold any judgement or comments until AJ tweets us all a copy of his latest MRI.

    Given the way he was moving around on the sideline after the game I'd say ACL or complete tear of hamstring have got to be almost no probability

    according to the doctors on 610 this morning, AJ grabbed the back of his leg/knee area, not the front of the knee, in which the hamstring does comedown that far into the lower leg where the tendons are.

    just have to see the results of the MRI....

    This is my thought. I've torn an ACL and I'm pretty sure that if the trainers felt unnatural movement between upper leg and lower leg that indicated a total tear, they wouldn't have allowed him to use any of his own power to get off the field and stand on the sidelines. Could be wrong, but I can't see the medical staff allowing that if their assessment included a high possibility of a total tear.

    AJ has been injured many times over the past nine seasons. And each time, when have they EVER been completely forthcoming about his injury. And when have they EVER released the results of his MRI?

    There's something else going on besides a "pulled hammy"

    I don't expect him back, and completely effective until the JAX game . . . . in week 12 after the buy week.

    well if thats the case we had better bring someone in to replace him until hes ready to go. PLUs i dont believe non of this B.S said until i hear it officially from A.J and half believe it if its from the Texans FO.

    I agree. When the Texans talk about an AJ injury and tell you absolutely nothing in the process you take it with a grain of salt. When they do that and work "second opinion" into the story then all bets are off.

    Kubiak said they were getting a second opinion and won't know for a day or two. He doesn't know if it's 3-4 days or a couple weeks.

    I guess they don't understand that most fans are still holding their collective breaths since AJ went down like he was shot in the leg. Tell us something, damn. Reassure us he's not out for the season....something
