The good news for the Houston Texans, Andre Johnson was a full participant in practice and looks ready to go for Sunday's contest versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. The bad news, the quarterback he's been used to throwing him passes for the majority of his career is out for the reason of the season.
Matt Schaub's injury has forced Gary Kubiak to install Matt Leinart into the starting lineup, and at 7-3, the buildup of the former USC quarterback will be key to getting the Texans into the playoffs. A win over Jacksonville would provide tons of security in locking up a playoff spot.
Here is the injury report for the Houston Texans on November 23rd:
