The Houston Texans aren't sure how long star wide receiver Andre Johnson will be sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has undergone several magnetic resonance imaging exams.

"It's hard for me to give you an answer right now," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He's going to miss some time. I don't know if that's three or four days. I don't know if that's a few weeks.

"We're dealing with a hamstring, we know that. We're still in an evaluation process. We're going to get a couple different opinions over the course of the next two days. Once we get a better evaluation and see how he progresses over the next two days, I can probably answer your question better."

Johnson is considered unlikely to play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Jacoby Jones would start in his place.
