Houston Vs. Cleveland: Andre Johnson Still Doubtful For Sunday, Not Practicing With Texans

The All-Pro receiver has missed half of the season and is still questionable to return Sunday against the Browns.

The Andre Johnson hamstring saga continues, as reports from the Texans camp quote head coach Gary Kubiak saying that Johnson won't practice today, but still has a chance to play in Sunday's game against the Browns.

Johnson hasn't played since the Texan's Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and has been rumored to return for the past two weeks. Kubiak even expressed last week that Johnson might be on the field against Jacksonville, but didn't suit up. Despite missing half of the season thus far, Johnson is still second on the team in receptions (25) and receiving yards (352).

Right now it's anyone's guess as to the probability of Johnson's return: The Houston Chronicle's John McClain is betting on a fifth straight missed game for the receiver. The Texans are 2-2 since Johnson's injury, but 3-0 in a weakened AFC South.
