Andre Johnson to be back against Titans
Dec/27/11 11:46 PM Filed in: Andre Johnson
Wide receiver Andre Johnson is expected to be back in the Houston Texans' lineup Sunday when they face the Tennessee Titans, according to the Houston Chronicle.
“When they tell me he can go, he’s going,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “It’s been a process. They’ve been working with him off the field, trying to get him ready to turn him over to me and put him on the field. … If it happens, it’ll be early next week.”
Johnson has had hamstring injuries on each leg this season and has played in only six games for the Texans with 31 receptions. The Texans need to incorporate Johnson back into their offense and give rookie QB T.J. Yates another good weapon.
While Sunday's game means nothing to the Texans in terms of playoff standings (and means everything to the Titans), Houston does not want to enter its first postseason backwards on a three-game slide.
