Andre Johnson (concussion) practiced on Wednesday.

Johnson was inactive last week due to his concussion. He's expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens. Johnson isn't a recommended fantasy option with Thad Lewis or Case Keenum expected to start.
Dec 17 - 4:01 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said it "looks like" Andre Johnson will return for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Johnson was inactive in Week 15, leaving DeVier Posey to start and DeAndre Hopkins to set a season-high with 13 targets. Johnson's return muddles the target totem pole, as does injuries to both Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) and Tom Savage (knee). We wouldn't want to start anyone in this pass game with Case Keenum or Thad Lewis under center.

Andre Johnson (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Texans.

Johnson was not able to clear the concussion protocol after sustaining his brain injury just seven days ago. The Texans will have to rely extremely heavily on DeAndre Hopkins in the pass game, as DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin will be filling in for Johnson. The rest of the Texans inactives: TE Garrett Graham, LB Whitney Mercilus, G Xavier Su’a-Filo, QB Thad Lewis, CB Andre Hal and DB Josh Aubrey.
Dec 14 - 11:36 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are expected to be without Andre Johnson (concussion) for Week 15 against the Colts.

Johnson failed to gain medical clearance over the weekend. DeAndre Hopkins should dominate pass-game targets, but the Texans will undoubtedly try and hammer Arian Foster on the ground. Damaris Johnson is next in line at receiver. Hopkins is locked and loaded as a WR2. Foster is an elite RB1 option.
Dec 14 - 9:14 AM

Andre Johnson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 15 after failing to earn medical clearance on Friday.

Johnson was "limited" in Friday's practice after missing Wednesday and Thursday's sessions. He currently appears to be on the doubtful side of his questionable tag, though that could change if Johnson passes the NFL's concussion protocols on Saturday. If Johnson does not play against the Colts, DeAndre Hopkins could be a usage machine in a domed game with the potential for high scoring. Keep a close eye on this situation into Sunday morning.
Dec 12 - 2:19 PM

Andre Johnson (concussion) has yet to be cleared, and coach Bill O'Brien expects him to be a game-time decision against the Texans.

Calling players "game-time decisions" has fast become one of the unnecessarily evasive O'Brien's favorite pastimes. It's, of course, utter hogwash in this instance, as the Texans will know before Sunday morning whether Johnson has been cleared. Hopefully the information leaks some time in the next 48 hours. The early signs suggest Johnson won't play, but he appears roughly 50-50.
Dec 11 - 4:02 PM

Andre Johnson (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

The Texans are listing Johnson as day to day and haven't ruled out him playing this week. DeVier Posey will replace Johnson on the outside if he doesn't get cleared.
Dec 10 - 5:46 PM

The Texans consider Andre Johnson (concussion) day to day.

Johnson took a scary helmet-to-helmet hit from Jaguars LB Telvin Smith during Sunday's Week 14 win. It's his second concussion since the start of the 2013 season. "He has to pass the concussion test to be able to be cleared," coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "I would say that's definitely a day-to-day thing." The Texans play at Indy on Sunday.
Dec 9 - 9:06 AM

Andre Johnson suffered a concussion in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Johnson was taken to the locker room after a big hit from Jaguars LB Telvin Smith, which drew an unnecessary roughness flag. Johnson had four catches for 17 yards on five targets before exiting.
Dec 7 - 1:53 PM

Andre Johnson said he hopes to finish his career with the Texans.

"[My] locker has been here the longest," Johnson said. "I couldn’t imagine how it would feel to put on another uniform, so hopefully I’ll be able to be here." The Texans will have a decision to make on Johnson in the offseason, as he's set to count over $16 million against the cap -- second-highest on the team behind J.J. Watt. There's no denying Johnson still has it, but DeAndre Hopkins has emerged as the Texans' No. 1 receiver. Johnson is averaging a nine-year-low 11.1 YPR and is on pace for a career-low 960 yards. He'll be 34 next July.
Dec 5 - 8:48 AM

Andre Johnson secured 7-of-11 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 13 win over the Titans.

Once again outplayed by DeAndre Hopkins (9-238-2), Johnson was generally kept quiet until he busted a 17-yard gain on a third-quarter wide receiver screen. Johnson's lowlight was getting stripped by Titans LCB Jason McCourty in the third quarter. McCourty took it back to the house from 62 yards away. Johnson atoned with a four-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, giving Houston a 38-14 lead. Settling in as a WR3 to Hopkins' WR2, Johnson will be a high-floor, low-ceiling fantasy option in Week 14 against the Jaguars.
Nov 30 - 4:44 PM

Andre Johnson secured just 3-of-12 targets for 36 yards in the Texans' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

Johnson's wildly ineffective 2014 campaign continued as Ryan Mallett peppered him with errant balls. At this stage of his career, Johnson lacks the explosiveness to his game he once used to "go get" those bad throws. Johnson will return to the WR3 fringe when the Texans take on the Titans in Week 13.
Nov 23 - 5:20 PM

Andre Johnson caught 7-of-9 targets for 68 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Ryan Mallett breathed some life into Johnson after Ryan Fitzpatrick held him back for the first half of the season. Mallett showed a willingness to target Johnson even when he was "covered," a good sign for the 33-year-old's fantasy outlook. Johnson was shadowed by Joe Haden throughout this game, regardless of where he lined up. Johnson is back in the mix as an every-week WR3 entering a Week 12 date with the Bengals.
Nov 16 - 5:32 PM

Andre Johnson caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

Johnson oddly didn't see his first target until there was roughly six minutes left in the second quarter. He finished with seven targets -- including one overthrown deep ball in which he was open -- but surprisingly struggled for effectiveness against the Eagles' sub-par corner duo. Johnson will be a weak WR2 only when the Texans come out of their bye against the Browns. He has zero 100-yard games and one touchdown through nine weeks.
