Andre Johnson ruled out again

Andre Johnson AP

Andre Johnson will miss his eighth game of the season on Sunday.

Johnson, the Texans receiver who when healthy is one of the best in the league, missed practice again today and was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Through the first three games of the season, Johnson was off to his usual stellar start, but he suffered a right hamstring injury in Week 4. Johnson missed the next six games, then returned for two games before suffering a left hamstring injury.

Johnson, who over the last few years has averaged nearly 100 receiving yards a game when healthy, has been limited to just 471 receiving yards this season.

The Texans opened the season slowed down on offense by Arian Foster’s anti-awesomeness, lost one of the best pass rushers in the league when Mario Williams suffered a torn pectoral muscle, are down to their third-string quarterback, and have been dealing with Johnson’s hamstrings all season. And yet they’re currently tied for the best record in the AFC. What the Texans have done despite all their injuries is remarkable.

    I’m tired of hearing about this guy being the #1 WR in the NFL. You can’t be #1 if you miss half the season or more every year. Sorry.

    “What the Texans have done despite all their injuries is remarkable.”

    Makes you think about last year’s Packers, doesn’t it?

    Why not? they are winning without him. Get him ready for the playoffs.

    He should hang out with my boi Darren McFadden.

    McFadden been out 52 days.

    “ankle sprain”

    LoL

    Last year’s Packers did not lose their starting quarterback and back-up quarterback to season-ending injuries.

    And Andre Johnson shouldn’t even think about playing next week against the Colts either. Maybe a few snaps vs. the Titans the final week just to get him some game action before the playoffs.

    ‘Dre and Wade will be watching the game on a 60″ plasma somewhere. Kinda tells you what the Texans brain trust thinks of the Panthers and Colts, doesn’t it?

    Not rush him back the Texans are going to need him in the playoffs.

    Wow, what an idiot you are. Let’s see…Andre has played 16 games every season since 2003 except for in:

    2005: Played in 13 games
    2007: Played in 9 games
    2010: Played in 13 games
    2011: Played in only 6 games

    So, where exactly has he missed half a season or more besides this one? Watch a little more CBS on Sundays and ESPN throughout the week and a little less Hallmark channel and you might know something about sports.

    What jimmyjohns said, and I’ve seen you post the same crap with the same response to your ignorance multiple times. Stop.

    I hope he never gets on the madden cover. he has bad luck without it.

    I don’t think there’s any comparison with the 2010 Packers. The Pack looked to be building for several years and their losses were always very close.

    Houston is admirable and tough but the schedule has been very friendly. They can roll to 13-3 beating Carolina, Indy and Tennessee down the stretch and I still would be surprised if they got past the AFC Championship.

    @cakemixa

    They are not talking about your madden game.

    In the real NFL he is a solid WR but when you get used as much as he does you might get hurt.

    I love how everyone wants to say the Texans are only good because of their schedule, yet Baltimore and Pittsburgh played the AFC South and the NFC West this year – the two weakest divisions in football, and the Patriots have the easiest second-half schedule in the NFL.

    @cakemixa…..What article are you reading, anyway? I don’t see anything in the article above where it says Andre Johnson is the #1 WR in the NFL? You must be a jealous Cowgirl fan. Sorry.

    T.O could pick up right where A.J left off, bring him in Texans! Or, just dissolve back into nothingness where you came from

    T.O. can’t get a job in the UFL right now.

    People talk about who the Broncos have beaten-losing records. How about the patriots-who have they beaten? Cowboys? Eagles? Colts by 1 touchdown? they’ve beaten no one!

    patriots have had the easiest schedule the last 6 years more than any other team

    Panthers roll 27-17.
