Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is not listed on the team's official injury report for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Johnson missed practice on Wednesday, but it was not injury-related.
The Texans may have given their veteran wideout the day off. Whatever the reason for his absence, Johnson is healthy and ready to play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Andre Johnson was once a fantasy football machine, but the Texans' run-first offense has held him back this season. Houston is wisely monitoring his snap count to keep him fresh and healthy for the playoffs.
Against the Buffalo Bills, Johnson is a definite start for fantasy owners. The only thing that could hold him back is if the Texans pull out to an early lead right away and have no need to pass the ball.
