Andre Johnson Injury Update: Will Practice Today, 'Has A Chance' To Play Sunday

In a great bit of news for a Houston Texans squad that has struggled since losing Mario Williams and Andre Johnson to injury, head coach Gary Kubiak revealed that their All-Pro WR may be back on the field as soon as this weekend:

 coach Gary Kubiak on Andre Johnson: "He's doing really well" and "he's got a chance." Will practice today. 

Johnson hasn't played since Oct. 2 against Pittsburgh, when he injured his hamstring early in Houston's 17-10 victory over the Steelers. He was expected to miss up to six weeks, but his recovery has been ahead of schedule, with Wednesday's practice likely to play a key role in whether he takes the field against the Jaguars.

The Texans have gone 2-2 in his absence, and they've really struggled to replace his production. Despite missing almost four games, Johnson still leads Houston's WR's in receptions and yards.
