Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will sit out his sixth straight game this weekend against Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Pro Football Talk.
Johnson, 30, has missed the Texans’ previous five 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.
It had been originally estimated that Johnson would miss only two-to-three weeks. After losing their first two games without the talented wide receiver, the Texans won their last three games in a row. It is expected that Johnson will return following next week’s bye.
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.
