Texans owner hopes Andre Johnson is back in “a couple of weeks”

The early word is that Andre Johnson’s left hamstring injury is not as severe as the right hamstring injury that kept him out of six games earlier this year.

Texans owner Bob McNair sounds resigned to the fact, however, that Johnson will miss some time.

“They say it’s a hamstring, but a typical hamstring injury and not a severe type of injury,” McNair told his team’s website after the game. “Hopefully, it’s one we can deal with and he can be back in a couple of weeks.”

Johnson was scheduled for an MRI Monday morning. He wasn’t ready to say he’d miss time after the game.

“If I came back from what I came back [from] earlier in the season, I definitely feel like I can come back from this,” Johnson said. “I know it’s not as bad as the last injury I had, but I’m definitely worried about it. It just didn’t feel right.”

The Texans have a two game lead in the AFC South. They are currently tied with the Patriots, Ravens, and Steelers at nine wins in the race for the top two seeds in the conference.

Houston’s most challenging game left comes this Sunday in Cincinnati. Based on McNair’s comments, it would be an upset if Johnson was ready to face the Bengals.

    The dudes a beast, but he seems to always miss a couple of weeks, each season.

    I guess it could be worse, Charles Rogers was drafted right after him.

    Frequent and recurring hamstring injuries are sign of improper conditioning.

    The Texans better have a look at whatever program he is on or he could struggle with this his entire career.
