Is the Texans wide receiver ready to make his comeback?
Matt Leinart is at quarterback for the Houston Texans this week, and perhaps the remainder of the season as Matt Schaub went on injured reserve with a foot injury. And as one key starter goes down, another is expected to return this week in receiver Andre Johnson.
Is the Texans wide receiver going to be out longer than originally thought
Andre Johnson's hamstring surgery is causing a lot of speculation in fantasy football circles. While the Houston Texans star wide receiver was originally scheduled to only be out "a couple of weeks" but there is some speculation that he could be out longer than the initial prognosis of week 7 or 8.
The Texans traded for veteran wideout Derrick Mason this week from the Jets. The Texans are also going to sign another wide receiver, Juaquan Iglesies to their practice squad.
Andre Johnson is battling a hamstring injury and could be out 3-4 weeks.
The Houston Texans suffered a setback on offense in Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh with an injury to receiver Andre Johnson. The exact nature of Johnson’s injury varied over the last couple of days, but reports on Tuesday have indicated he will likely miss three games. Johnson hurt his hamstring in the first half against the Steelers, after catching four passes for 36 yards.
The All-Pro wideout was injured Sunday against the Steelers.
Non-contact injuries are often the worst ones.
That was the feeling in Houston yesterday when Texans All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson fell untouched to the Reliant Stadium turf. Many speculated that it could be a knee injury – which would have been the scariest scenario – but it appears that Johnson injured his hamstring instead. The MRI today will tell us more, but everyone knows how much Johnson means to the team.
