Andre Johnson did undergo surgery

AP

A report surfaced from Stephanie Stradley of the Houston Chronicle’s website on Wednesday that Texans receiver Andre Johnson underwent Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy earlier this week.

The Texans called it a “procedure” which seemed odd at the time, but Stradley has now issued a correction. Johnson, in fact, did undergo surgery on distal tendon of his hamstring.

The anticipated recovery time for Johnson remains three weeks.  It’s hard to imagine you could return from any surgery on the hamstring faster than that, but the reality is that no one in the media knows much of anything when it comes to recovery timelines.

  1. The Texans didn’t need this. Tennessee looks to be better than they were thought to be before the season started.

    The Jags and Colts have no real shot themselves so this injury might cost Houston the AFC South if it lingers too long…

  2. Can someone explain to me why a lot of players don’t do this? He knew what type of injury it was. Why let it linger. Go ahead and get the surgery & let it heal. Either way, that player won’t play in the game anyway.

    What are you laughing at?

    Wasn’t that AJ’s team that just beat up your team last Sunday? Didn’t they injure several Steeler players? Didn’t they win the game?

    Funny, I don’t see any Texan fans on here gloating about how they injured any of your team’s players.

    Man, you are classless, just like many of the players on your team are. No wonder you have such a blind love for them…

  5. Jealousy is really starting to take it’s toll on you losers. LOL! The Steeler Nation sparks jealousy. We expect and respect this burden. Wow, we are amazing. 6

    Don’t mind this clown, he was first to post the same comment on the original article about Andre’s injury on Sunday. Just a troll trying to get under people’s skin…

  8. 7thlombardiontheway is a little kid, like LITTLE.

    Let’s keep some perspective and just ignore him.

  9. The anticipated recovery time for Johnson remains three weeks.

    “WHEW!!”

    – Cortland Finnegan, who faces the Texans in two weeks.

  10. 7thlombardiontheway’s just upset because his team is going in the tank and can barely beat a crippled, pathetic, lowly team like the Colts. LOLz…

  11. Not taking anything away from A. Johnson, the guy is a freak! But Houston is solid enough running the football and defensively to tred water for 3, 4, or even 5 weeks without him. Win the games you should win (Oakland and Jacksonville at home) and possibly lose the tougher away games (Tennesee and Baltimore) and you’re still 5-3 going into a winnable game against Cleveland. Arian Foster owners…prepare to get your value out of that first round pick because he’s about to carry the team for awhile.

  12. As you all know Im a Raider fan, go to all the games,…Im telling you, Andre can suit up and still get wide open. Pathetic defense. The Raiders hired a DC that was fired from the UFL. Holy cow.

    Sweet mother 7thlombardiontheway and stairwayto7 are the most annoying posters on PFT.

    I would venture a guess they are the same person. Probably a disgruntled Browns fan posing as a Steelers fan and making the dumbest comments possible.

    3 weeks is pretty good, considering the way Andre dropped to the ground like he’d been shot. I thought that was an ACL tear for sure while watching the game live. Three weeks out is a bullet dodged for Andre and all Texans fans.

    Damn, hope he gets better soon so the Andre/Calvin debate can continue.

  15. PRP is hardly a surgery. They withdraw some blood, spin it in a centrifuge for a few minutes, and inject a concentration of platelets into your tendons (etc.).
