Houston Texans Injury Report, Week 17: Gary Kubiak Feels Andre Johnson "Needs To Come Back" This Week And Get Reps

Breaking news, Andre Johnson's hamstring has him listed as "limited" in practice this Wednesday for the Houston Texans. The Texans are preparing for their season finale versus the Tennessee Titans knowing that regardless of what happens they will be the No. 3 seed for the AFC Playoffs.

Head coach Gary Kubiak's biggest concern is to make sure that Andre Johnson's ready for the game two weeks from now, and that playing Sunday could help out.

"From Andre's standpoint, I'm just worried about getting him back ready to play for a couple weeks from now," Kubiak said. "I think that's why he needs to come back and play this week just to get on the field and get some reps. But I'll have to watch what's going on because we definitely want him two weeks from now. I'm just concerned with him playing. I'm not concerned with anything else."
