"All the information we're getting moving forward is very positive," Kubiak said. "We're not putting any timeline on anything right now. We just know everything went well. The doctor feels good about it, Andre feels good about it."
The Texans' are preparing to deal with the Oakland Raiders this weekend without their star wide receiver. Johnson is expected to miss three weeks with the injury. The Texans' had to deal with losing Johnson last year when a sprained ankle kept Johnson out of three games, including a 31-24 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
Johnson originally injured the hamstring in the Texans' 17-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Texans' just got running back Arian Foster back from his injury and are now having to deal with another injury to a key player. Kubiak knows that it means other players are going to have to step up in Johnson's absence. via ESPN.com
We've got to, as a group, try to replace all the production that he adds on the field. That means everybody's got to pick it up, and we'll have a chance to prove it."
