    On a play away from him, AJ apparently suffered a chest injury. He was reported as having the wind knocked out of him, and came back a few plays later. Then he was pulled a second time and taken to the locker room. He came back from the locker room, sat on the sidelines, and his return was listed as questionable. Then the trainers took his helmet and he was led into the locker room a second time.

    Confusing series of events, and not sure if Im 100% correct in following it. Any updates?

    Sounds like he bruised some ribs

    I posted this in the game thread:

    610 just said AJ has a bruised chest muscle but is being taken to the hospital for further testing.

    I'm hoping its not a rib injury, broken ribs are a 6-8 week process at best...... this is not good

    Hopefully its just a contusion/bruise/external problem and not a rib injury

    He may have a bruised sternum. I recall Steve McNair had that type of injury back while playing for the Titans. It seemed to be a nagging sort of injury. I certainly hope it is nothing serious as our offense relies heavily on AJ to open up our other options.

    I think it's a rib injury because the first time he was visibly hurt he was pointing to his back on the sideline.

    Just saw the "Johnson hospitalized" headline on the nfl site. I almost had a heart attack. Needed a whisky out to calm my nerves. I hope it's not bad and that he's good to go in Buffalo.

    (on WR Andre Johnson's injury) "Well, we're concerned. He's got what they're telling me is a chest contusion right now. We have him down at the hospital; we'll get him looked at. But, obviously he could not go there in the end. So there's concern until we see."

    I say...just make sure he's ready to go against the Colts.

    AJ never ceases to amaze me, he wanted to go back in.

    We need you back AJ, lets hope this is not serious.

    I wonder if he had a partially collapsed lung. That would be cause for hospital

    I've experienced muscle strains/pains in the chest area and they are nothing to play with.
