Latest injury news:

  • Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) expects to miss a couple of weeks after undergoing a minor procedure to fix his right hamstring injury. He is scheduled to have the stitches removed from two incisions early next week. A doctor told Johnson he can "go for it" after the stitches are taken out. Johnson thinks he'll be back sooner than later because he is a "fast healer."
  • Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 7, and has been ruled out for Week 5.
  • Houston Texans LB Tim Dobbins (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 7, and is listed as doubtful for Week 5.
  • Houston Texans WR Bryant Johnson (hamstring) and CB Sherrick McManis (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 7, and are listed as questionable for Week 5.
  • Houston Texans RBs Ben Tate (groin) and Derrick Ward (ankle, shoulder) were limited during practice Friday, Oct. 7, and are listed as questionable for Week 5.

  • Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring), who will not play during Week 5, hopes to return to action in "a couple of weeks" after having a minor procedure done on his right leg earlier in the week.

    "You really can't put a timeframe on it, but just my gut feeling right now, I would give it a couple weeks. It just depends on how it feels once the stitches come out," Johnson said. Johnson had two incisions made in his leg, and the stitches will be checked in five days. Johnson was told by doctors that he can "just go for it" once stitches are removed. He has been walking around normal and has not experienced any pain with any of his rehab exercises.

    Johnson noted he had a "pretty big lump" of scar tissue that built up behind his right knee, which is what was causing the irritation. He said he had some trouble with it during training camp and then it acted up when he went down hard against the Pittsburgh Steelers during Week 4.

    "I'm just glad that it's over with, it's fixed and I can move on," Johnson said.
  • Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) will start during Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders and he will be backed up by RB Chris Ogbonnaya. Head coach Gary Kubiak plans to have either RB Ben Tate (groin) or RB Derrick Ward (ankle) active as the team's third running back. Kubiak said he needs to decide which of the backs will be the best option.
  • Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said RB Ben Tate (groin) or RB Derrick Ward (ankle, shoulder) will be active in Week 5 and will be the No. 3 running back in the game.
