Andre Johnson making progress, but ruled out for Sunday

It’s no big surprise that the Texans ruled out wide receiver Andre Johnson for Sunday’s game against the Titans.

Johnson said earlier this week that he wasn’t expecting to be back this soon, but said that he didn’t think he’d be out as long as doctors who predicted he’d miss six weeks with the hamstring injury he suffered in Week Four. Based on Gary Kubiak’s comments about Johnson on Friday, it sounds like Johnson’s prediction will come to fruition.

“Obviously, Andre is not where he needs to be right now, but he’s doing well; doing very well,” Kubiak said. “He was catching balls today from [quarterback] T.J. [Yates] and running routes. It’s very impressive where he’s at right now, but there’s still a little ‘nother step for him to take before we’re comfortable. So, hopefully he’ll take it here sometime soon.”

Kubiak said that Derrick Mason has a full grasp of the offense after being limited to a select package of plays in his first week after coming over in a trade from the Jets. That should help a Texans passing attack that has thrown for a lot of yards without producing enough points in the two weeks since Johnson went down with the injury and it should help them once Johnson is back on the field.
