Andre Johnson injury update: Fantasy owners could expect him for Week 4

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Johnson is just day-to-day and avoided a major injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Texans receiver Andre Johnson (shin) is just day-to-day after X-rays were negative on his leg. He battled his injury on Sunday and was unable to finish the game.

The former All-Pro missed a series due to the injury on Sunday, went back out to try and play through it, then stayed on the sidelines to finish the game. He finished with just three catches for 36 yards in the loss to Baltimore in Week 3.

This was the second time that Johnson has dealt with health issues in 2013. He was tested for concussion symptoms last week and couldn't complete Week 2's game before eventually being cleared to play in Week 3.

Fantasy impact: Last year, Johnson stayed healthy and turned in a huge year. However, before that he had a litany of problems, subsequently lowering his fantasy value in drafts. The good news is that he's looked to dodged a bullet, but there has to be some trepidation among owners about his outlook. He should still be viewed as a low-end WR1, but he's now one of the riskiest to own. DeAndre Hopkins has to be owned in all leagues since he would be a breakout candidate sans A.J.
