Receiver Andre Johnson, who was kept out of the Carolina game to protect what had been a sore groin, hopes to play against San Francisco on Saturday.
“If the coaches want me to play, I’ll play,” he said. “If not, I’ll be sitting on the sideline. It’s not my decision.”
Johnson was replaced by Keshawn Martin, the fourth-round pick from Michigan State. He had two catches for 24 yards and ran once for 12 yards.
“Keshawn is a guy that doesn’t say anything,” Johnson said. “Everybody has always said that I’m quiet. He’s quieter than me. You have to really pull things out of him to get him to talk, but he has a lot of talent. Since he’s been here, he’s been making lots of plays.”
