Houston Texans owner Bob McNair hopes injured wide receiver Andre Johnson will be “back in a couple of weeks” after sustaining a hamstring injury, NBC Sports reports.

“They say it’s a hamstring, but a typical hamstring injury and not a severe type of injury,” McNair told his team’s website after Sunday’s game.

Johnson injured his left hamstring in Sunday’s win against the Atlanta Falcons. Johnson had missed six games earlier this season due to a severe right hamstring injury. Johnson is scheduled for an MRI Monday morning.

“If I came back from what I came back [from] earlier in the season, I definitely feel like I can come back from this,” Johnson told reporters. “I know it’s not as bad as the last injury I had, but I’m definitely worried about it. It just didn’t feel right.” In six games this season, the nine-year veteran has caught 31 passes for 471 yards and two touchdowns. Currently, Johnson’s Texans sit atop the AFC South with a 9-3 record.
