Andre Johnson caught five passes for 77 yards in the Texans' Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins each saw a team-high nine targets. There was nothing special about Johnson's night. His biggest play was a 24-yard grab on a deep in route in front of the safeties. Johnson has just one touchdown on the season. He could have had another on Monday if Ryan Fitzpatrick would have hit him in stride on a corner route in the end zone. But Fitzpatrick overshot Johnson, who had a step on the defensive back. Johnson remains a WR2 thanks to volume. He and the Texans travel to Tennessee in Week 8.
Oct 21 - 12:25 AM

Andre Johnson (ankle) was upgraded to full in Saturday's practice and is listed as probable for Week 7.

Johnson is good to go for Monday night's matchup with the Steelers. He's Rotoworld's No. 15 receiver this week.
Oct 18 - 3:39 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice.

The Texans are limiting Johnson's practice reps, but he's expected to play on Monday night. Johnson is Rotoworld's No. 15 receiver this week.
Oct 17 - 6:53 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The Texans have made a habit of limiting Johnson's practice reps, but he hasn't been limited in games. He'll be a WR2 for Monday's game against the Steelers.
Oct 16 - 5:20 PM

Andre Johnson caught 7-of-12 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in Houston's Week 6 loss to the Colts, also losing a fumble.

The score was Johnson's first in 77 catches, the longest such drought of his career. He earned it, beating extremely tight coverage from Greg Toler in the end zone. Johnson's fumble was a fourth-quarter backbreaker, however, as he coughed up the ball on his own as he attempted to separate from Vontae Davis. Johnson was also called for offensive pass interference in the final period. Either way, Johnson looked like his vintage self this evening, and has re-established his WR2 bonafides heading into a tasty Week 7 matchup with the Steelers.
Oct 10 - 12:17 AM

Andre Johnson (ankle) is active for Week 6 against the Colts.

Johnson's status was never really in doubt even though he failed to practice this week. The Texans were just managing his reps on a short week. Yet to break out with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, Johnson remains a low-end WR2 against the Colts. Inactive for the Texans are RG Brandon Brooks, CB Darryl Morris, OLB Jadeveon Clowney, WR DeVier Posey, QB Tom Savage, S Josh Aubrey and CB Jumal Rolle. Xavier Su'a-Filo is starting in Brooks' (illness) absence.

Andre Johnson (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Colts.

Johnson didn't practice all week, but is expected to play despite being listed as questionable. He'll remain just a low-end WR2 against the Colts' secondary. Johnson has yet to score a touchdown through five games.

Oct 8 - 3:42 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) sat out Tuesday's practice.

The Texans are just managing Johnson's reps after he escaped Sunday's loss without setbacks. Even if Johnson sits out again on Wednesday, he should be good to go as a WR2 for Thursday night's game against the Colts.
Oct 7 - 4:48 PM

Andre Johnson caught 5-of-8 targets for 58 yards in Houston's Week 5 loss to the Cowboys.

Johnson's ankle wasn't an issue, but Ryan Fitzpatrick couldn't find him down the field. Johnson's longest grab went for just 20 yards. Five games into the "FitzMagic" era, Johnson has still yet to find the end zone, and is settling in as a low-end WR2. He should be active for Week 6, but his ankle could be a question mark with the Texans on a short week. Houston hosts the Colts on Thursday.
Oct 5 - 5:16 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) is officially active for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Johnson reportedly looked great in pre-game warmups, and can be fired up as a high-reward WR2 against the Cowboys' patchwork defense. Johnson is overdue for a touchdown.
Oct 5 - 11:31 AM

Andre Johnson reportedly didn't looked bothered at all during warmups by his ankle issue.

Johnson is fully expected to start and play his usual number of snaps despite sitting out Friday's practice for precautionary reasons. He's our No. 22 wideout for Week 5.
Oct 5 - 11:09 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Andre Johnson (ankle) and Arian Foster (hamstring) will both play Sunday against the Cowboys.

Johnson was the bigger question mark, as Foster is listed as probable. Johnson hurt his ankle last week and missed most of the practice week. He's a 33-year-old All-Pro who doesn't need to practice to play. We fully expect to see Johnson starting opposite DeAndre Hopkins. He's a mid-to-low WR2 for Week 5.
Oct 5 - 9:03 AM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien expects Andre Johnson (questionable, ankle) to play in Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Johnson was held out of practice Friday, but declared himself "fine" earlier in the week. Barring a setback, he should start against Dallas. Johnson is Rotoworld's No. 22 receiver this week.
Oct 4 - 7:02 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) was held out of Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

The expectation all week has been that Johnson will play, and there have been no indications otherwise. Johnson has spoken on the topic, calling himself "fine." Keep an eye on the situation into Sunday morning, but we'd have Johnson penciled into fantasy lineups as a WR2. Although he's yet to score a TD this year, Johnson is on pace for 88 catches and over 1,000 yards. The Houston Chronicle's John McClain tweeted Friday that he "expect(s) Johnson to play."
