Andre Johnson racks up 74 yards in comfortable Week 2 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson received three stitches to the face after being gashed by Charles Woodson in a Week 2 win over the Raiders in Oakland.

The injury didn't impact Johnson's performance, as he still led the team in receiving. He caught five passes for 54 yards in the first half. He was limited to two receptions in the second half. His longest gain was a short screen pass for a pick-up of 20 yards in the third quarter Johnson was targeted seven times and finished with six grabs for 74 yards, averaging 12.3. yards per catch in a 30-14 victory.

Johnson has 12 catches for 167 yards through two games. He has yet to score a touchdown. He will look to change that in Week 3 in New York against the Giants.


Texans have 11 injured players ruled active for Week 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The following injured Texans have been ruled active for Week 2 at Oakland: A.J. Bouye (shoulder), Brian Cushing (ankle), Arian Foster (ribs), Garrett Graham (back), Tim Jamison (groin), Andre Johnson (ankle), Johnathan Joseph (foot), Elbert Mack (foot), Mike Mohamed (quadriceps), Jay Prosch (hand) and J.J. Watt (ankle, illness).

Texans list 10 as probable Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The Texans have listed 10 players as probable Week 2 against the Raiders.

Tight end Garrett Graham WR Andre Johnson, CB Johnathan Joseph, CB A.J. Bouye, OL Tyson Clabo, LB Brian Cushing, RB Arian Foster, DE Tim Jamison, CB Elbert Mack, LB Mike Mohamed, OL Chris Myers, OL Derek Newton, FB Jay Prosch, OL Xaier Su'a-Filo, DE J.J. Watt and DT Louis Nix II are all probable heading into the game.

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was the only player ruled out for Week 2. 


Andre Johnson almost has another 100-yard game in opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson fell 7 yards shy Sunday against the Redskins of recording his sixth career 100-yard game in a season opener. He settled for a team-high 93 receiving yards on six catches in a 17-6 win Week 1.

Johnson was targeted a team-high nine times by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was making his first regular-season start for Houston. Johnson's longest catch went 23 yards.

The Texans are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.


Andre Johnson is a big-time performer in openers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Texans veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson is no stranger to having big performances in season openers. He's surpassed 100 receiving yards five times in Week 1 matchups, including a 12-catch, 146-yard performance last year, which is the most 100-yard games in season openers among active players.

The Texans opponent Sunday will be the Redskins, who allowed Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson to surpass 100 yards in the season opener in 2013. The Redskins would surrender a 100-yard performance to a receiver six more times, but none in the final eight games. Wide receivers averaged 167.1 receiving yards and 22.1 Fantasy points per week, while totaling 16 touchdowns in 16 games against Washington.

Johnson appeared in just one preseason game, so he could have fresh legs heading into the opener. Though, you wonder what kind of rapport he has with veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is in his first year with Houston.

Johnson thrived when Matt Schuab was the Texans quarterback, and Fitzpatrick had pretty good success throwing to Stevie Johnson when he was with Buffalo, so maybe Fantasy owners shouldn't get too worried now that Fitzpatrick is under center for Houston. For now, though, it might be safer to consider Johnson a No. 2 Fantasy wide receiver.

Bill O'Brien: 'No reason' to rush Andre Johnson back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Report: Andre Johnson at facility to learn new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Receiver Andre Johnson went to the Texans' facility Monday to learn new coach Bill O'Brien's offense, reports ESPN.com. It could be an indication the seven-time Pro Bowler intends to show up to training camp. The first practice is Saturday.

Johnson skipped Houston's mandatory minicamp, plus voluntary OTAs, because he's upset with the direction of the team and doesn't want to go through another rebuilding year, according to NFL.com. He reportedly asked to be traded, but it looks like the sides are working things out.


Andre Johnson spotted at stadium, expected at camp on time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Andre Johnson was at NRG Stadium on Monday, a "good sign" for the Texans as they hope to avoid a holdout by the disgruntled receiver, reports ESPN.com. Houston holds its first practice Saturday.

Report: Jets not in market for Andre Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) The Jets could use a receiver to pair with Eric Decker, but Metro New York reports the team is not pursuing disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson.

Acquiring Johnson "is not something we are actively pursuing," a team executive told Metro New York, adding “he isn’t a fit for where we are heading." The executive said Johnson is a special player, but he'd hurt the team's cap flexibility.

So far, Houston has not shown a willingness to trade Johnson, the report said.


Arian Foster trying to soothe Andre Johnson


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson, unhappy with the organization's offseason moves, might hold out when veterans report for training camp July 25. Running back Arian Foster is trying to convince Johnson of his importance to the team and the city.

"He is Houston," Foster told KRPC-TV. "I remember when I had my little run where I had back-to-back like great seasons and I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go this is still Dre's city. I don't care if James Harden is walking around or Dwight Howard or whatever. This is Andre's city."

Johnson could be fined $30,000 a day if he doesn't show up. He reportedly has requested a trade, but it's doubtful the team will oblige him.

"I understand where he's coming from. I really do," said Foster, who texted with Johnson recently. "This is a business and people forget this is a business and he's at a point in his career where he doesn't want money now. He wants to go win.

"I would love to have him here, but ultimately that's one of my friends outside of the field. I want him to do what's best for him," Foster added. "If he doesn't feel like playing anymore and wants to hang them up, I'm going to support him 100 percent. If he wants to come back and help us win, I'm all for that as well."


Andre Johnson's trade value a matter of disagreement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Houston Chronicle asserted earlier Friday that the Texans won't trade Johnson.
