Johnson considered day-to-day with mild hamstring strain

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson missed six games with a right hamstring injury before returning last week.

The All-Pro wideout pulled up lame on a deep pass from T.J. Yates on Sunday against Atlanta and fell face-down to the field.

Johnson eventually stood up and limped to the sideline before heading to the locker room.

The former Hurricane legend said this injury felt “nowhere near” as bad as the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 4 against Pittsburgh.

Good news: After undergoing an MRI on Monday, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson has a mild hamstring strain and will be day-to-day, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

He said the team is “very fortunate” that the Miami alum did not suffer a significant injury to his hamstring.

The five-time Pro Bowl pass catcher recorded four receptions for 97 yards (long of 50) before exiting Sunday’s 17-10 triumph over the Falcons.
