Week 16 Texans-Broncos Injury Report: Andre Johnson A 'Game-Time' Decision

The one Texans star that everyone was worried about coming into the week was Arian Foster, but it turns out that the leading AFC votegetter for the Pro Bowl at running back is just fine. He practiced in full and coach Gary Kubiak strongly implied that he’d be on the field on Sunday.

Who might not be? How about wide receiver Andre Johnson. He didn’t practice, and Kubiak called him a ‘game time decision’ according to Nick Scurfield. While benching Johnson would hurt his milestone numbers, his ankle has been bothering him all season long and that might be reason enough to sit him in a couple of games with no playoff implications. Remember the last time that Kubiak made a game-time decision note on Johnson, Week 4 in Oakland, he didn’t play.

Here’s the full report, again thanks to Scurfield:
