Andre Johnson still isn’t practicing

Texans receiver Andre Johnson strained his left hamstring on Sunday.  On Monday, owner Bob McNair suggests that Johnson could miss a couple of games.  Later that day, coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson had a mild strain, and that his status will be day-to-day.

As of Thursday, Johnson still isn’t practicing.

Kubiak said Thursday that Johnson worked out in the pool, and that the team has a general plan for handling Johnson on Friday.

“I would say we probably have a pretty good idea,” Kubiak said, via comments distributed by the team.  “We’ll see.  It’s a touchy situation because we are very fortunate.  We came out of it a lot better than we thought.  At the same time, how quick do we go back and that type of thing?  He has gotten good work inside in the last two days.  Whether we bring him out here tomorrow probably will be a big deciding point on where we go in the game, so we’ll see.”

The 9-3 Texans face the Bengals in Cincinnati on Sunday.  On one hand, the Texans need to keep pace with the other 9-3 teams in the conference.  On the other hand, they need Johnson at 100 percent for the postseason.

  1. I’m willing to bet my Cadillac that Rick Smith won’t do what it takes to trade up and get Justin Blackmon. Pathetic receiving corps without Andre.

    What year is it?

  3. Andre Johnson is out for the rest of the regular season. I wish they would release Derrick Mason and sign Terrell Owens. We need someone who can be a deep, vertical threat with west coast offense experience. Regardless of your personal thoughts, feelings, and perception of Terrell, he is better than Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones, Bryant Johnson and Derrick Mason.

  4. Sign Terrell Owens NOW. Swallow your pride Texans and you can put up with the diva for a whole month. It would boost your chances of getting the #1 seed, and anyway, isn’t that what it’s all about? (Besides winning the Super Bowl, of course).

  5. I traded Johnson off for Beanie Wells shortly after he was first injured weeks ago. I got laughed at. Now I’m 10-2 and enjoying a playoff bye. The other guy….2-9-2, dead last.

  6. You don’t want TO on your team trust me. He has only caused trouble everywhere he’s gone. You couldn’t convince me he didn’t have anything to do with Palmer pulling his stunt in Cincy. If your team has good chemistry then you don’t want Owens.
