    Just wondering if there is any new word on when A.Johnson will be back? It seems everyone has just kinda quit talking about him coming back. Last I heard he was running and making cuts. Is there anyway he's ready for Sundays game?

    AJ is out for the Chargers. But, he made progress in practice and Kubiak said Friday that Johnson will hopefully be back for the Raiders next week.

    I think he will be out for next game too, or he will play a limited role next week anyway. Last week Jacoby didn't play his full role in his first game back last week, and he was out for less time. Kubiak will treat them similiarly I would think. Seems like Jacoby was more ready after that Jacksonville game than Andre seems to be right now. Maybe we will hear something during or after this football game in San Diego.

    It would be a mistake to play him next week. Just let him continue to build up strength and come back after the bye week.

    Why would we shelf him for the rest of the season if he can return? Especially since he got hurt in week two.

    i hate to sound like a pesimest but the season is over we might as well let AJ get completely healthy for next year and lock up another top 5 pick. we need a CB or a RB in the worst shape possible. and besides whats this like 17 straight game's AJ has missed:sarcasm:

    Why is the season over? There are nine games to go. We're 3-4. I still believe 8-8 or 9-7 is in our future.

    Unless you're one of those people who would rather we not show up the rest of the season just to get a high pick.

    So because it is impossible to go 13-3, our season is over? We still can have a very good season once Andre comes back. We probably won't make the playoffs, but that doesn't mean that we should just give up right now. Our team needs to create a culture of winning and we need every win that we can get regardless if it causes us to get a worse draft pick.

    Also, there is also free agency, which means that we don't need a high pick to add quality players to our team.

    And more wins would entice more players to want to come here.

    How many games will we win when he gets back and how many games do you think we will win until we get AJ back?

    Not saying he's the only problem, but he is a major piece of the puzzle. Losing Mckinney hurt as well but with AJ they've gotta gameplan for him and it gives a little bit of room for the running game to work when you've got a WR like AJ catching the ball. Personally, i'd like to see what Chris White/Kasey Studdard can do.

    We won't win any games until he comes back....

    ...and of course will be all due to Kubiak's playcalling.:sarcasm:

    How about this:

    If AJ comes back the game after the bye, who will be surprised?

    Hopefully AJ will take the rest of the year off to heal. The rest of this season is about finding out who deserves to be here next year.

    Well... I don't know if my eyes were deceiving me yesterday but I believe that I saw someone state that this may be the end of Johnson's career.

    Anyone else see that?
