Andre Johnson (concussion) expected to play Sunday-- Tue Dec 16 8:42 am --
Texans WR feeling better this week
Andre Johnson will likely return to the starting lineup for the Texans against Baltimore.
“I think he feels better today,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “Looks like we would have Andre Johnson back for Sunday.”
On December 7, Johnson suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit in Jacksonville. After failing to clear the league’s concussion protocol, Johnson was inactive in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Colts.
The twelve-year veteran All-Pro receiver is currently four catches from becoming the tenth player in NFL history to reach 1,000 career receptions. If he does so against the Ravens in Week 16, he’ll become the second fastest player to reach the milestone, accomplishing it in his 168th game. (HoustonTexans.com)
FF Today's Take:You'll have to monitor his status leading up to game time, but if he's no longer experiencing symptoms that's a good thing. The problem is that Texans will start either Case Keenum or Thaddeus Lewis at QB, which doesn't bode well for the passing game.
