Texans receiver Andre Johnson missed another practice Friday with a hamstring problem, reports the Houston Chronicle. Coach Bill O’Brien said “there’s no reason to rush him back.”
“He’s doing better. It’s something we talk about every day. When he feels ready to be back, (he’ll be back). That’s not a serious injury. One thing I’ve noticed about Andre from our offseason conversations is that he’s a very bright guy. He’s already got a lot of the things down. In the afternoon we walk through a lot of things with him, routes, adjustments signals, things like that,” O’Brien added.
“It’s been my experience with guys of that caliber, being one of the top receivers in the league, they get there for a reason. They have talent, they’re good teammates and they’re smart. You can see that with Andre.”
Johnson tweaked his hamstring while making a diving catch Monday.
