    I also noticed Green limping slightly and he never came back in the game. Was he dinged up or just saving him for next week?

    610 said his knee was heavily bandaged and iced down.

    I don't have a good feeling about it . . . at all.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    AJ was walking with a slight limp on the sidelines after he got hurt ... looks like a bruise to me, or at worst a sprain.

    I hope a few days off will help him. We have no chance against Indy next week without him.

    I hope he's okay but at least we have JJ who hasn't been used yet.

    A bruised knee is a bruised knee. Even if the MRI comes back negative, I think he's questionable at best for the Colts game.

    Just trying to be realistic.

    Both Green and AJ were both on the sideline until the end of the game. If their injuries were serious, you would assume they'd have been taken immediately to the locker room. At least I hope that's the case.

    Honestly, I'd be okay if he had to miss Indy.

    Its every game after that that scares me...

    I don't think we can make any predictions until there is an MRI. Hold your breath until then.

    If it were a close game then you probably would have seen them in the game. In this case, where we're up by 3 scores, it's best to err on the side of caution with your best offensive players, especially this early in the season.

    hello all. I cover the Texans for the Houston Press and am new to this forum. Just spoke to one of the Texans and he says the preliminary diagnosis on AJ is it's a sprained PCL. No word yet on his availability for next week, but that Andre was in good spirits in the locker room.
