Andre Johnson injury: Texans star likely to play in Week 3 after concussion

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans will have wide receiver Andre Johnson in the lineup against the Ravens in their Week 3 matchup.

The Texans will have their top receiving weapon available in Week 3. Star wide receiver Andre Johnson will play against the Ravens on Sunday, despite suffering a concussion just seven days before the matchup, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said on Wednesday, per Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun. Johnson was injured during the Texans' 30-24 win over the Titans in Week 2.

Johnson is the Texans' number one option in the passing game and will be a huge asset against the Ravens. He has caught 20 balls for 222 yards in just two games, with an average of 10 catches and 111 receiving yards per game. Johnson and rookie DeAndre Hopkins will test the Ravens' secondary that gave up seven touchdowns to the Broncos in Week 1 but allowed just six points in the following week against the Browns.

Johnson and the Texans will travel to Houston to face the Texans at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
