WR Andre Johnson To Miss A Day or Two After Dislocating Finger

Texans All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson will miss “a day or two” of practice after dislocating his left index finger in a morning workout. Coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson will be OK.

“I think we got lucky,” Kubiak said. Johnson wore a bandage on his finger as he watched the Tuesday afternoon walk-through from the sideline. Johnson was running a slant route in an individual drill and leaped to catch a pass, with rookie cornerback Roc Carmichael defending. Johnson couldn’t make the catch and came down shaking his left hand. He took off his glove, his finger was bleeding and he walked to the sideline, where a trainer examined him. “As soon as I felt it pop, I felt it out of place and I popped it right back in,” Johnson said.

“I really wasn’t in a lot of pain, or anything like that. It was just more concern about the bleeding and stuff.”
