Andre Johnson Injury Update: Johnson 'Pumped' About Progress

Andre Johnson is feeling good after his minor procedure that he underwent on Tuesday Oct. 6 that left him with only two stitches and that he feels no pain in his hamstring when he walks, bends it or rides a bike. Johnson is expected to have the stitches out on Oct. 11 and he is optimistic that he will only miss two games and be back for the Tennessee Titans game:

"If I had to pick a date, I'd say two weeks. You can't really put a timetable on it, but that's my gut feeling based on how good I feel right now."

[...]

"I wish I could go out there now and test it," Johnson said. "I'm walking and riding the bike and bending it, and I don't have any pain or soreness. Of all the procedures I've had done, this is the best I've felt after it. I'm pumped."

Johnson also went onto say once he gets the stitches out that is when he can go full speed and test his hamstring. 

There is a small chance that Johnson could return to face Tennessee, but most likely he will not be back until Oct. 30 when the Texans face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
