Andre Johnson Injury: Texans Wide Receiver Leaves Game

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson suffered an injury on Sunday in the first half against the Steelers. After receiving a pass, Johnson collapsed without any contact as his knee appeared to give out underneath him.

Johnson sat out practice on Wednesday dealing with a sore knee. Scroll down for an animated GIF of the injury via Mocksession's Tim Burke.

The Texans offense will be hard-pressed to replace the production they get from Johnson, one of the finest wide receivers in the NFL. The burden on the offense is especially difficult because they are also concerned with monitoring the carries of running back Arian Foster, who is still returning to full strength after suffering an injury of his own. Foster is already around 20 carries in the first half.
