He says that the knee sprain is both the good and the bad news:
Given that Johnson is one of the league leading receivers and all the rest of the Texans receivers are young and/or unproven, everyone is interested in how the Texans to deal with this other than saying "oh @#$%." (feel free to insert favorite profanity for nonsense symbols). Kubiak's response:
The question I think that we'd have to answer is if Andre is unable to go, how are we going to go about it? Are we going to start Kevin (Walter) and Jacoby (Jones)? Are we going to leave both of those guys at the Z position and move Jerome (Mathis) or Andre (Davis) up to the X? So that's something we'll address, but as a staff, as we talked about it before I came down here, all four of those kids are going to play. They're all young players and we're going to have to- you know one of the things we said during training camp, and it's funny how things work out, a lot of people wanted to know who our number two receiver is going to be. And my answer to you guys all the time was that I'm concerned about the group being good, not who's going to be number two. So we're fixing to find out if the group can pick up the slack if Andre's going to miss some time.
So basically, it sounds like we'll have more information later this week. If you are eager to more now now now about his diagnosis, check out this link on PCL strains. The sum up for those of you not clicky inclined:
1. No swelling is a good thing
2. Typically, torn PCL's swell.
3. Technically, you can have a sprain that includes a tear, if it is a grade III sprain.
4. PCL sprains are not a preventable injury.
5. Recovery time is individual.
If any actual doctor-type people out there want to add some opining and various speculation, I'd love to hear it. Non-docs can comment too about the prospects of a no-AJ Texans team facing the Colts this weekend.
