Andre Johnson caught three passes for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.
Ryan Fitzpatrick declined to even try to press the ball down the field. The good news is that Johnson's hamstring was not an issue and he remains a go-to guy one year removed from a 109-catch season. There's some value in his fourth-round ADP. Aug 24 - 12:32 AM

Andre Johnson is "showing no signs of rust" after missing a chunk of Texans camp with a hamstring injury.

Johnson reportedly showed up "all over the field" during Wednesday's Texans-Broncos joint practice and made one "incredible" catch in the back of the end zone. "He's a big part of what we're doing here," coach Bill O'Brien said. The No. 12 overall fantasy receiver a year ago, Johnson's ADP has dropped into the late fourth round. His QBs were Matt Schaub and Case Keenum in 2013.

Andre Johnson (hamstring), Arian Foster (hamstring) and Brian Cushing (knee, leg) are participating in Wednesday's joint practice with the Falcons.

Johnson, who was in pads Wednesday, ends up missing 15 days due to his strain. With an ADP in the late fourth round, he's currently a value pick as he preps for another target-heavy season -- this time from Ryan Fitzpatrick instead of Matt Schaub/Case Keenum. Foster's status will be worth watching closely as he's had recurring hamstring issues throughout his career. Cushing, who is now officially off active/PUP, will be ready for Week 1.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien continued to express optimism Monday that Andre Johnson (hamstring) and Arian Foster (hamstring) will be back soon.

Neither participated in Monday's practice, but both "put in hard work" on a side field. O'Brien thinks both could play in Houston's second preseason game. "I’ve spoken to both those guys," said the rookie coach. "They’re doing better. It’s a long season and our trainers are doing a great job with them. But it seems like they’ve improved and hopefully they can do something this week."

Andre Johnson (hamstring) has still not resumed practicing and will not play in Saturday's preseason opener.

Johnson pulled up lame on July 28 and has been rehabbing ever since. The Texans obviously have no motivation to push him even though the injury is not considered serious. Johnson still has a month to get ready for the opener.

Andre Johnson has been sidelined since pulling his right hamstring on Monday while making a diving catch.

"I think he’s doing better," coach Bill O'Brien assured. "I think that is something he and I talk about every day. I don’t think there is a need to rush him back. I think he needs to come back when he feels ready to be back."

Andre Johnson reported to training camp on Friday.

We can all breathe. Johnson was in Houston talking with Texans brass earlier this week, leading many to believe he would report to camp in time for Saturday's first practice. He did just that. Johnson's not going anywhere this year, and will be suiting up for the Texans and catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. He should still dominate targets, but Johnson's YPR average may take a blow. Even at 33, Johnson is still one of the premier receivers in football.

Andre Johnson's player rep has remained in contact with the Texans.

Johnson's agent declined comment on reports that Johnson had shown up at team facilities on Monday, but suggested tensions have cooled. For now, most signs point toward Johnson reporting for the Texans' first workout on Saturday.

The Houston Chronicle reports Andre Johnson is expected to report to training camp on time.

Johnson was at Houston's NRG Stadium on Monday talking with team brass. It's obviously great news for the Texans and would ease the minds of fantasy players. The Texans have no real incentive to trade Johnson unless they can finagle an early-round pick from the acquiring team. Johnson has averaged 110.5 catches for 1502.5 yards with nine touchdowns the past two seasons. A shoo-in WR1 when healthy, Johnson's current ADP is at the back of round four.

ESPN Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez believes Andre Johnson would be a "natural" fit in Oakland.

We disagree because the Raiders are not close to playoff contention, and shouldn't be looking to surrender draft picks for 33-year-olds. But Gutierrez notes Johnson's history with Matt Schaub, the Raiders' need for a No. 1 receiver, and nearly $11 million in salary cap room. It's still difficult to imagine Johnson signing off on a trade to arguably the NFL's worst team. Vegas has Oakland tied with Jacksonville for the lowest win projection (4.5) in the league this season.

After speaking to four NFL executives regarding potential trade compensation for Andre Johnson, the Sideline View's Lance Zierlein received answers ranging from a second- to fifth-round pick.

Although the Houston Chronicle's John McClain has been adamant the Texans will not trade Johnson, it's worth remembering McClain was adamant for most of the pre-draft process that the Texans would not select Jadeveon Clowney at No. 1 overall. (They did.) We suspect GM Rick Smith would seriously consider dealing Johnson if a win-now team offered a 2015 second-round pick. If the offer were a fourth- or fifth-rounder, the Texans should comfortably pass.

The Houston Chronicle reports Andre Johnson "will not be traded."

Beat writer John McClain is plugged in to all things Texans. He believes the team wants Johnson to finish his career in Houston, and they don't want to deal Johnson simply because he wants out, which would set a precedent for similar situations if they developed in the future. Another big factor is money. The Texans would eat $12 million by trading Johnson, and the acquiring team would take on his roughly $16 million cap hit. McClain expects Johnson to either play for the Texans in Week 1, or sit out and forfeit over $500,000 per week.
Jul 11 - 9:56 AM's Ian Rapoport reports Andre Johnson would be willing to restructure his contract to facilitate a trade, but not take a pay-cut.

In other words, Johnson would gladly help a new club kick the can down the road, but would still expect to eventually collect every cent in it. Johnson's $15.644 million cap number greatly complicates any potential deal, and would make a restructure all but necessary.
Jul 10 - 8:15 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Andre Johnson has told the Texans "he wants to play for another team."

Rapoport added four teams have expressed interest in the veteran wide receiver, but Houston is resisting the move. It is unsurprising Johnson wants a trade. Entering his age-33 season, Johnson does not have time to wait through yet another rebuilding job. He is also unhappy the Texans refused a deal that would have paid him his $1 million workout bonus despite the fact that he missed several sessions. Even with the animosity, it is not a certainty Johnson leaves Houston. Rapoport believes the Texans could remedy the situation by paying Johnson his $1 million or promising him a roster spot in 2015. This has the look of a saga that could drag into camp.
Jul 10 - 12:01 PM

Andre Johnson hinted to NFL Network's Marcus Smith on Wednesday that he plans on reporting to training camp.

"Hopefully," said A.J., who skipped last month's mandatory minicamp. "We’ll see what happens. Camp is three weeks away." Johnson's beef was never about money. He understandably fears a lengthy rebuild for a team that had May's No. 1 overall draft pick, but we suspect the Texans will be more competitive more quickly than Johnson believes. His "hopefully" comment suggests ending the holdout is in Johnson's plans. Currently sporting a late-fourth-round Average Draft Position, Johnson has the look of a value pick entering his age-33 season.
