Andre Johnson Injury Update: All-Pro WR Will Not Play On Sunday

While the Houston Texans were optimistic that their All-Pro WR Andre Johnson would be available this weekend against the Cleveland Browns, head coach Gary Kubiak revealed Friday that Johnson would miss at least one more week with a hamstring injury that has kept him out for over a month:

Kubiak: "Andre (Johnson) will be out. He will not play again this week...Obviously he's not ready to go yet."

Without his ability to stretch the field, their passing offense has struggled over the last month. But thanks to the return to health of star RB Arian Foster, Houston has been able to steady the ship the last two weeks, pushing their record without Johnson to 2-2.

After missing five games, the Texans may be tempted to let Johnson miss their Nov. 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so he can heal up through their bye the following week, although that's a decision that will probably not be made until late next week.
