    I'd be surprised if either played vs. the Jags.

    Hope Casey will play. He's a great weapon to have on the field and our best blocking FB as well. I know we miss AJ alot but Casey as well.

    AJ need to take his time and make sure he is 100% before he comes back. Our schedule couldn't be more easy. The division is all but gift wrapped. Wait and be sure he's going to be money for the playoffs.

    Nothing is easy in this league, especially with the Texans. If AJ is ready, then he needs to play. If he's NOT ready, then and only then, give him more time.

    I agree with your post 100%!

    Kubes did say that Dre worked real hard today. He didn't watch Dre work first hand but that was the report from the trainers. So the plan is for Dre to practice this week if he feels good coming off todays workout.

    They've already been precautious enough with AJ, he said two weeks ago he could have played if it was the super bowl or playoffs, i think he should be ready to go.

    Like Speedy said, nothing is easy in the NFL, we need him every week, even if he's just a decoy out there.

    You guys that are saying he should play will be singing a different tune if he re-injures his leg or another part while trying to compensate.

    Ill be surprised if andre DOESN'T play in the jaguars game. Wasn't him sitting out for the Titans game just precautionary? He should be 100% by the end of this week

    Of course people will be upset if he re-injures it but if he worked out hard on it today and is cleared by the training staff, what is he suppose to do? Just sit out 6 weeks because the doctors said it could take 6 weeks for him to heal? This Sunday will be 4 weeks since he injured it and if he says he is 100% then I'm good with it!

    If he re-injures his leg or another part of his body trying to compensate, then he wasn't ready.

    That's what "only if he's really ready" means. If he's really ready, he should play. If he's not really ready, then he shouldn't play.

    This same coaching staff and group of trainers felt like Foster was good to go as well, and he ended up re-aggravating it twice this year. Manning already had leg issues going into the Titans game, and he ends up injuring that to a point where he'll miss a good amount.

    Let's put things into perspective please. We lost to a legit Baltimore team (and still were in a position to win the game) and then had to deal with an emotionally charged Oakland squad (and again - still were in a position to win).

    The next two games are against the Jags and Browns, we can handle them. We NEED a healthy AJ down the stretch and in the playoffs to stand a remote chance.

    Just want to say, the Jags have a really good defense when they are focused and up to it (no doubt they will be playing against the Texans.)

    Andre would help a ton in spreading them out. If he's ready he should obviously play, there are not many easy games on the schedule and when has Jacksonville ever been a easy game?

    Seeing the scores to the Ravens/Jags game and thinking it would be awesome if AJ is back next week. Jags always seem to play us tough, regardless of records. The more weapons we have the better.

    I predicted he would be back for the Jags game and am sticking with it. Maybe he cant go 60 minutes, but I would still like to have him for 30.

    I say sit him. The Texans are cursed, no reason to play him against the Jags. Better safe than sorry.

    Please explain why there is no reason to play him against the Jags.

    I might be tempted to have him on the bench until and unless we get behind...
