    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    You and RedWhiteand Blue must have been composing your threads at the same time. Same info, seconds apart.

    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.

    If I believed any one player in the NFL when they say things like this it would be Andre. Guy is all class and a monster of a competitor.

    Yeah, people have knee surgery all of the time when their knee isn't hurting them?

    I would guess it was more to clean up the injury from last year.

    Need Cloak in here.

    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.

    OTA's are for rookies and free agents.......I would rather he did it now than at the start of training camp.......
