Andre Johnson Expected To Return This Weekend For Houston Texans

Monday November 21st, 2011

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson practiced with the team today and head coach Gary Kubiak said that he should be available to play this weekend, according to the team’s official Twitter account.

According to Kubiak, the 30-year-old receiver took all reps with the team today and “all systems should be go this weekend” for the injured receiver. The Pro Bowler has missed the team’s previous five games while recovering from 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 due to the injury. After losing their first two games without the talented wide receiver, the Texans have won their last three games in a row. 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.
