Can the Houston Texans keep on keeping on with their walking wounded roster? Having Andre Johnson on the injury report and out of the lineup in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers won't help.
Johnson, who has played sparingly this season with a hamstring injury, is listed as out for Week 15, meaning that T.J. Yates -- also listed on the Texans injury report with a right elbow injury -- won't have the Texans' best weapon in the passing game at his disposal. The weak Carolina secondary may be ripe for Yates to pick on despite Johnson's injury, though.
Here's the rest of the Texans injury report for Week 15:
OUT: G Mike Briesel (ankle), WR Andre Johnson (hamstring), CB Shedrick McManis (ankle).
QUESTIONABLE: DE Tim Bulman (calf), TE Joel Dreessen (knee).
PROBABLE: LB Mister Alexander (shoulder), CB Jason Allen (thumb), TE Garrett Graham (hamstring), CB Brandon Harris (hip), DE Jason Nading (knee), RB Lawrence Vickers (hamstring), DE J.J. Watt (hand), QB T.J. Yates (right elbow), C Chris Myers (knee), WR Kevin Walter (knee).
