Texans | Andre Johnson scheduled for MRI
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 21:54:40 -0700
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (shin) is scheduled to have an MRI Monday, Sept. 23, on his bruised shin. He was kicked in the shin in the Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He attempted to return in the second half after X-rays at halftime came back negative, but he did not remain in the game for long. "I watched him the first play, we threw the ball the first play, and I wanted to see him run," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "I did not think he could run the way he needs to...so we took him out."
Johnson should be fine to play in Week 4, but this is just another reminder that he's very injury-prone. That won't change now that he's on the wrong side of 30. It's tough to keep DeAndre Hopkins out of your starting lineups.
