Andre Johnson strains right hamstring on Monday

Andre Johnson AP

Some would say that a player missing the offseason program exposes him to a greater injury risk when training camp opens.  Those who would say that would point to Texans receiver Andre Johnson.

Johnson, who skipped all of the 2014 offseason workout program due to concerns regarding the direction of the team and his future role in it, tweaked his right hamstring muscle in practice on Monday.

After practice, both Johnson and coach Bill O’Brien downplayed the situation.

“I just got a little tight, it was just a precaution,” Johnson said.  “We’re going to go in and see what’s what. Just from the feeling of it, it’s not anything bad.”

O’Brien called the injury “minor.”

Still, it makes sense to pay attention to Johnson’s health or lack thereof as he tries to make up for lost time.  While having him back is better than not having him, an injury that knocks him out of action for an extended stretch will put the team in the same position as if he’d never shown up.

    Sounds like he wants to be traded to the Patriots

    He is certain that playing for the Browns will make it feel better.

    Of course a minor “strain” is something that a DR can’t diagnose..player says it hurts..DR see’s no damage..call it a strain. In other words..he is going to do EVERYTHING he can to NOT play in Texas. he earned it..TRADE him Texans before it gets uglier and you can’t trade him. trade while he still has value.

    What was it someone said about a “mystery injury” appearing after his return to camp? They called it right.

    The Browns and the Pats will just have to sit in awe of Dre, he’s a Texan. Not to mention a FAR BETTER receiver than the muck that will make the roster on either of those two teams this year. I do hope he recovers quickly though, he had some pretty bad hamstring issues in his 2011 season.
    Playing for the Browns won’t make anyone feel better, just ask [Insert their past 15 QB's here]

    Who couldn’t see this coming?

    All part of the plan

    Going to the Browns usually results in MESA for big time free agents. That’s the last place any big name wants to go.

    MRSA…autocorrect

    AJ has always been fragile as an egg. Foster hurt, AJ hurt, this season looks just like last so far.

  17. 4thqtrsaint says: Jul 29, 2014 8:24 AM

    Sounds like he figured out how to not get fined for missing practice, without having to practice.

  18. pats4win says: Jul 29, 2014 8:57 AM

    Did anyone actually believe AJ was going to make it thru camp without “tweaking” something?

    This could be seen coming from a mile away.
