Andre Johnson caught 10-of-15 targets for 134 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.
Johnson ends his 12th season on a high note, and he did it again with Case Keenum under center. The two have a strong connection because Keenum isn't afraid to throw it to Johnson and consistently peppers him with targets. Johnson appeared in 15 games this season, but it was probably his worst statistical year since his rookie campaign. Not counting injury-shortened seasons, Johnson (85-936-3) fell short of 1,000 yards for the first time since 2005. He also averaged just 11.0 YPR, his worst mark since 2005. Johnson has never scored touchdowns at a high rate. Set to count $16.1 million against the cap next season, 33-year-old Johnson may have to take a pay cut. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:54:00 PM

Andre Johnson is willing to take a pay cut to remain with the Texans for 2015.

"We understand it’s a business, and we’re willing to deal with that," were the words of Johnson's longtime adviser Andre Melton. Johnson says he'd like to finish his career as a Texan. "I hope it all works out, where I can finish my career here and hopefully get this organization a Super Bowl before I retire," Johnson said. "If it doesn’t, then I’d hate to see it end that way. But you have to just keep moving forward." Going on 34, Johnson remains an effective starter, but is no longer the superstar he was during his (long) prime. Signed through 2016, Johnson is due $10.5 million guaranteed in 2015, and set to count $16.1 million against the cap.

Andre Johnson caught six passes for 65 yards in the Texans' Week 16 win over the Ravens.

Johnson was targeted a game-high 13 of Case Keenum's 42 throws. He did most of his damage on the opening drive, securing three passes for 56 yards. Later in the afternoon, Johnson became the 10th player in NFL history to catch 1,000 passes for his career. The Texans host the Jaguars in the Week 17 finale.

Andre Johnson (head) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Ravens.

Johnson's outlook is improved by DeAndre Hopkins' (ankle) likely absence, but hurt by Case Keenum's insertion at quarterback. He's a risky WR3 play.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 04:16:00 PM

Andre Johnson has passed the concussion protocol.

He got in a "full" practice on Thursday. Johnson ends up missing one game due to his brain injury. He returns in a plus matchup against the Ravens' brutal corners, but will have to deal with Case Keenum at quarterback. Both Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are risky WR3 types.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 12:26:00 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 04:01:00 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.

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.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 09:14:00 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.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 02:19:00 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.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 04:02:00 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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 05:46:00 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.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 09:06:00 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.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 01:53:00 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.
