Andre Johnson Injury Update: Gary Kubiak Believes Texans WR Will Be Game-Time Decision

The Houston Texans wrapped up their Thursday practice and are getting some encouraging news from wide receiver Andre Johnson. According to head coach Gary Kubiak, Johnson felt better on Thursday and will still probably be a game-time decision Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Andre Johnson has been recovering from surgery on a hamstring injury and is still in the recovery window for the procedure. My guess is Johnson does not play this Sunday, but the good news is the Texans play an early game on Sunday. You will not find yourself rolling the dice on a 4:05pm ET start.

In the weeks since Andre Johnson went down with the hamstring injury, the Texans have had a mix of players step up in the receiving game. Since losing Johnson, Owen Daniels, Arian Foster, Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter have all led the Texans in receiving at some point. Of the players on the fantasy football waiver wire, Walter and Jones are solid options. Walter is probably the safer of the two, while Jones has a bit more upside.
