Andre Johnson Injury: Texans WR Expects To Return Week 12

Andre Johnson believes he will return from a hamstring injury in Week 12 against the Jaguars, following the Texans upcoming bye. The Texans wide receiver has not played since undergoing surgery after he was forced off the field in Week 4 against the Steelers.

On Tuesday, he seemed confident that he would be ready to return to the field, via HoustonTexans.com's Nick Scurfield. "I feel like I'm ready. Right now, I don't have any doubt that I'll be back on the field next Sunday," Johnson said.

The Texans could use Johnson on the field to help out quarterback Matt Leinart, who will take over for the injured Matt Schaub.

Here's a fantasy take on the passing game from SB Nation's David Fucillo:

The Texans have also benefited lately from a mix of weak opponents that has allowed them to dominate in the running game. Arian Foster and Ben Tate have dominated lately and the passing attack has been able to take a step back.

When the Texans do pass the ball, Kevin Walter is the receiver who has most stepped up in place of Johnson. However, the team has been much more inclined to go to tight ends like Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen. None of the Texans receivers remain anything more than flex options at best.
