Andre Johnson, 2nd fastest to 800 career catches

USA TODAY Sports

The other Johnson receiver is pretty good too.

Texans receiver Andre Johnson had an early catch in Houston's game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the 800th catch of his career. Johnson reached the milestone in 137 career games, the second-fewest number of games in order to reach that mark. Marvin Harrison caught his 800th ball in 131 career games.

Johnson might have gotten to 800 sooner, but the sometimes-injured receiver has missed a possible 22 games in his career with various ailments.

With Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson getting all of the Comeback Player of the Year talk (and rightfully so) few people have taken notice of Johnson's remarkable season. After missing nine games in 2011 with a hamstring injury, Johnson has resurged to 93 catches for 1,360 yards coming into Sunday. Johnson has the fourth-most catches among active players, behind only Tony Gonzalez, Randy Moss, and Reggie Wayne.

A day after Calvin Johnson set the single-season record for most yards in a season, the other Johnson reminds us how good he has always been. Except that Megatron could always upstage him with an 800-catch season sometime in his career.
