Texans | Andre Johnson wasn't healthy to begin year

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (groin) had only nine catches for 164 yards in the first four games of the season, but he wasn't completely healed from a groin injury that he suffered in training camp. Since Week 4, Johnson has averaged 8.4 catches and 119.6 yards per game. "I'm feeling a lot better," Johnson said. "I feel like my explosion came back. That's a big part of my game, so I feel a lot better than I did at the beginning." He's coming off an eight-game stretch in which he has 68 catches for 1,002 yards. Johnson needs just seven grabs and 140 yards in the final two games to join former WR Marvin Harrison as the only receivers with at least 100 catches and 1,500 yards in three seasons. He could also join former WR Jerry Rice as the only wideouts with 100 catches and 1,500 yards in their 10th season or later.
