    I say just sit him until after the bye. I hope Andre wants to get out there soon, but having him back fully for those last 6 games will most likely be huge. I really would like to sign MSW considering Bryant Johnson is just an extension of the offensive line at this point, but we're looking at at least 2 weeks to get him up to speed.

    who thought the Texans were being honest about the duration of the injury? Bueller, Bueller?

    I usually listen to what they say and multiply the severity by 4 (might have to bump it up to 5)

    Well that stinks. Am I the only one who's noticed that whenever Bryant Johnson is in the game it's almost a guaranteed run every time? Time to take the training wheels off of these guys and give them chances to make plays.

    yeah, when CnnnD told us this was gonna take up to 6 wks, I set my sights there and put no more stock in "coachspeak" regarding A.J. situation.

    Should have just said he was active to make them game plan for him I mean shit at this point our most dangerous player in the game would be the threat of Andre Johnson sitting on the bench dressed out. Besides it isn't like we need to bring Trindon Holliday to games apparently.

    He'll miss three games. He's already running. Boy he sure is headed in the right direction. Maybe he will return to practice next week. :gun:

    Andre makes the offense work. It's really that simple. Foster is a great running back, but he can't carry the offense without Dre.

    The next few games are going to be tough.


    btw, I didn't expect him back very soon either.

    The article is a quote ndirectly from Dre himself. How much more "official" do you want?

    I agree...... For AJ too have even a little doubt about his body isn't a good sign. He's normally extremely confident dealing with injuries, but you can tell he doesn't know what to expect with this one.

    Not that i expect Dre to play this week or anything, but he didnt say what the thread title suggests, and i havent seen it anywhere else...

    So how about 'official' official?

    I heard the interview this article was based on live this morning on 610 as he was with Vandy and Lopez when he said this stuff this morning.

    To be fair...he didn't say it WILL take 6 weeks, said it COULD

    I don't know about answering any questions, but if we win this game it's huge in a lot of ways. For one, we would be 2 games up on the Titans in the division which is the first tie breaker after head to head. The best the Titans would be able to do is tie us in head to head meetings if we pull this out.
