Andre Johnson Injury Update: Gary Kubiak Rules Star WR Out For Sunday

While Andre Johnson has recovered from the hamstring injury he suffered four weeks ago faster than expected, Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak doesn't think he's quite ready to return to the field:

Gary Kubiak decided to rule out Andre Johnson for a fourth consecutive game despite making progress recovering from hamstring injury.

The Texans have gone 2-2 since losing their four-time All-Pro WR, but the team has not been able to replace his production in the passing game. Johnson, despite playing in only three full games, still leads the team's wide receivers in receptions and receiving yards.

The good news for Houston fans is the Texans probably don't need to rush him back, not with games against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 6. 

Jacksonville, starting rookie QB Blaine Gabbert, has a 2-5 record and the league's worst-ranked passing offense, although Johnson's ability to stretch the field and convert first downs over the middle will be missed against their stout defense.
