The Houston Texans have ruled out wide receiver Andre Johnson due to a left hamstring injury. …
Andre Johnson to miss another game
When asked about the Jaguars game, Kubiak said he thinks Johnson will be ready.
"Yeah, I do, but let's be honest, until he comes out here and starts practicing with the team, I think we don't get ahead of ourselves there," Kubiak said. "But everything looks like he will be doing that. We'll work him next week when we give the other guys a break and he should be ready to come going into the Jacksonville week."
Johnson said he concurs with waiting to get him back on the field.
"I think it was a good decision," Johnson said. "Like I said, I think it's probably the best decision because you don't want nothing crazy to happen. I wasn't able to practice with the team this week, but I still could go out and play football. I didn't practice, so we felt the best thing was just to wait and go through the off week. I'll be still here doing off-week working and doing routes and stuff like that and just shoot for the Jacksonville game.
"I should be ready the Jacksonville game. That's the way I feel about it. Everything's been going very positive this past week. Like I said yesterday, I haven't been feeling the pulling feeling that was causing the pain and stuff, so hopefully I'll continue not to feel it. I didn't feel it today when I ran. I had another good day of work today. Like I said, it's been very positive and we felt the best decision was for me not to play Sunday and just shoot for the Jacksonville game."
