Wednesday Injury Report List: Johnson Questionable, Bentley Out

In a series of tweets, Nick Scurfield of unveiled the Texans Wednesday injury report list:

LB Kevin Bentley

WR Andre Johnson
LB Darryl Sharpton
FS Eugene Wilson

TE Owen Daniels

DE Mario Williams
LB DeMeco Ryans

Nothing too surprising on that list. Andre Johnson, questionable with a high ankle sprain, said that it's just a matter of pain management for him:

"They're pretty nagging," Johnson said. "It's something that's going to bother me until it just fully heals. After I re-aggravated it last game, they told me that it hadn't gotten any worse; it was just every time I take a hit on it or I'm tackled a certain way, I'm going to feel pain. The only thing I could do is just come out for a few plays and if I'm able to go back and play, I can continue playing."

"That's just pretty much how it's going to be until it fully heals."

The signing of CB Karl Paymah, to me at least, looks like it's partially a result of the injury to Bentley, who is the Texans special team ace. With Bentley down with knee surgery and likely out at least a few weeks, the team opted to try to find another guy who could contribute on special teams.
