Andre Johnson gave the Texans a scare when he left Sunday’s win in the fourth quarter with a chest injury, but the problem isn’t serious.
“They’re telling me it’s a chest contusion,” coach Gary Kubiak said after the game.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Johnson should be ready to play next week at Buffalo. Johnson coughed up some blood on the sideline after taking a big hit on a 44-yard catch on Houston’s last drive that scored points. (If Matt Schaub led Johnson better, it may have been an 85-yard touchdown.)
The Texans nearly coughed up a 21-0 lead, but the team’s defense finally came through with a stop in the game’s final minute. After back-to-back wins over the Bengals and 49ers, the Texans will be favored to go to 5-3 and be in the playoff race for the first time in franchise history.
