Andre Johnson Tells Reporters He May Not Play Sunday
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson practiced yesterday according to a tweet from the team’s official Twitter account, but it is unclear whether Johnson will be available to play Sunday in the Texans’ matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to reports from ESPN.
"If I feel the way I feel today," Johnson told reporters, "I probably won't play Sunday, but today is not Sunday." Texans coach Kubiak also remained optimistic but cautious about Johnson’s status, saying that the team will continue to monitor his progress.
Johnson, 30, has missed the Texans’ previous three games recovering from a surgery to repair a hamstring injury. In his first four games of the season, Johnson hauled in 25 receptions for a total of 352 yards and two touchdowns. The former first round pick has played his entire nine-year career with the Texans. The 6’3” receiver has recorded 100-or-more receptions in three separate seasons in his career, and has amassed 52 touchdowns total.
