    Hope Vickers comes back. I like Casey's versatility but he is just not the battering ram Vickers is. His absence was definitely felt during last weeks game at Jax.

    But thanks for the heads up.

    Kubiak Thursday (injury report):

    Defensive coordinator Coach Wade (Phillips). He is sick today. I'm filling in for him.:overreact:

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Agreed but I just can't stand the way his abilities are so very, very limited by playcalling. Everything he's done this year screams for more opportunity and it doesn't even get him a consistent look. I know he was pretty dinged up for a few weeks but at least use him in the decoy role he was used in earlier this year, motioning LBs out of the box and such. Just silly to me to have a guy like Casey, who could be a weapon and ignore him more often than not.

    He'll be fine. What was it he said after breaking a finger last year? "It's okay, I'll drink a glass of milk tonight." Haha

    AJ as expected is listed on the Injury Report (NFL.com and HoustonTexans.com).
    But what I just caught is, that instead of "hamstring," he has been listed as "knee.":kitten:

    I saw on twitter Scurfield today saying that AJ took the full reps and there won't be any play count on him Sunday...

    Like everyone else, I'll be rooting for AJ come Sunday. But, that twitter quote and Kubiak's quote still does not account for why the long-standing "hamstring" label now appears as a "knee." Remember, the studies that I referred to relating to the potential for short-term or long-term "loss" of hamstring strength and knee stability measured following the loss/"clipping" of the semitendinosis hamstring tendon. Hopefully, this or continued "favoring" of his hamstring is not the explanation for the new injury terminology.

    Let's also keep in mind that we have no idea if the Texans had any PADDED practices this week at all..........remember, in the last 6 weeks of the regular season, only 1 padded practice during 3 of those weeks are allowed.

    As it is, the 1 padded practice during a team's weekly preparation cannot be expected to accurately or adequately simulate real game challenges (both mentally and physically, especially for a player (any player) dealing with or coming off of injuries). I'll let you fill in the blanks as to how well NO padded practices prepares you for Sunday clashes.

    The only way we or Kubiak will be able to judge AJ's progress and performance is by watching how he does on the field..........on Sundays.

    Hopefully this doesn't turn into a Kenny Britt situation.

    Where a bum hamstring turns into a blownout knee.

    No. You're supposed to be bringing him medicine so he can get well for Sunday. You do YOUR job so Wade can do his.

    Thanks for the info, great insight!

    I remember hearing that the surgery AJ had was similar to an ACL surgery in that both include the clipping of the tendon AJ had removed. Could this be a similar reason why once you have an ACL tear the likelihood of the injury recurring is increased? Would be devastating if AJ blew out his knee, especially at this point in his career.

    Since the medial hamstrings (of which the semiteninosis is one) often provide dynamic support against valgus stress (see image below) and instability, some surgeons feel that chronic or residual medial collateral ligament laxity (grade 2 or more) at the time of ACL reconstruction may be a contra-indication for use of the patient's own semitendinosus and gracilis tendons as an ACL graft. Obviously, this instability can lead to increased risk of recurrent ACL injury.

    The MEDIAL side of the knee (where the semitendinosis attaches) is the inside:

    Valgus stress (which mimics being hit hard on the outer [lateral] side of the knee) is what many players sustain leading to subsequent ACL rupture.
