    Signs continue to point to Andre Johnson being active for the Texans this weekend. Barring a setback that's the plan.

    Don't tease a brother like this, man.

    I give a 42.7% chance of this being accurate.

    I will believe it when I see it. I still think his return will be after the bye week.

    I hope he is not out there. Don't get me wrong, I am dying to see him play football, I just don't want him rushed back.

    Well if he does go out there it will be because he knows he's ready, not because the coaches are rushing him back. so i will be a ease a little.

    Agreed with the majority here.

    I want him back healthy.

    Yeah, let the Browns gameplan for Andre, which will free up the run game for Foster... Even when AJ's out, he's still feared.

    If activated I hope he remains on sidelines until absolutely needed to win. Give him all time he needs.

    I would say suit him up and let him play the second half of the game if he needs to as long as he is feeling no pain at all. Even without the explosiveness at 100% it would open up the field for our other receivers and open up the box for Foster/Tate a tad. I would say be on the safe side and let him come back after the bye though, we will need him for the playoffs more than we will need him for non-division games.

    Gah, previous posters beat me to it.

    based on what? the propaganda of the talking comrade heads? hope? A nice guess? I hope they don't eff up his injury by bringing him back too soon.

    Not sure what signs he's talking about. He's missed practice for two days. Although I know Andre's been with the team forever and could miss a week of practice and still go but still, him missing practice and Kubes saying it'll be a game time decision makes me think he's out for another week.

    It would be nice to have Andre back considering Cleveland has the number 2 ranked pass defense.

    See my post in the other Andre thread.

    If he plays it would be the worst decision of Garys tenure and that takes some real ignorace to be the worst.

    Yeah but they have played so far:

    SF - Smith ranked 31st in Passing O
    Seattle - Jackson ranked 26th in Passing O
    Oakland - Campbell ranked 25th in Passing O
    Tennessee - Hasselbeck ranked 14th in Passing O
    Miami - Henne ranked 27th in Passing O
    Colts - Collins ranked 19th in Passing 0
    Cinci - Gradkowski ranked 22nd in Passing O

    They are playing really really bad passing teams, so those numbers are a bit skewed.

    If 'Dre plays it's because HE feels like HE'S ready.

    So, if he's out there I'm sure it will be good. That being said I don't expect him to play and, I'm okay with that.

    Let me see if I understand...

    1. AJ works out on Monday.
    2. Shows up Wednesday gimpy. Does not practice.
    3. Shows up today. Does not practice. Works with trainers.
    4. La Canfora tweets AJ will probably play on Sunday.

    Let's play the old Sesame Street game...

    One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just isn't the same...

    Let's not saddle Andre with any Deion Sanders sounding nicknames.

    Even if AJ is healthy... I would like to see him get through a week of practice before he suits up. I want him to get his numbers & what not, but a healthy Andre in the playoffs is gargantuan. I will be very surprised/disappointed if he plays this Sunday vs. the Browntown Betties.
