Andre Johnson to have ankle surgery

A. Johnson will have ankle surgery next week. Posted by Josh Katzowitz

You have to applaud his heart and pain tolerance level, and you have to admire his loyalty to his team. But sometimes (much of the time?) playing through injuries only makes them worse.

Which is why Texans WR Andre Johnson will have to undergo ankle surgery next week in the first week of Houston’s offseason.

“Because I kept playing on it, some things like loose particles developed in there, and now I’m going to get them cleaned out,” Johnson said, via the Houston Chronicle.

Johnson will have missed the past three games of the 2010 season, and though he didn’t have his most brilliant year, he still managed 86 catches for 1,216 yards and eight touchdowns in yet another Pro Bowl season.

“The biggest thing was just being smart about the situation,” Johnson said. “The best thing I felt was for me not to be out there to have something else bad happen or me re-injure the ankle like I’ve been doing the whole season.”

Has absolutely nothing to do with the U, but everything to do with Andre Johnson.  A true class act that some of your 'U' athletes could learn from.

I really hope this does not affect A.J. in the long run of his career.  What a talented player, with toughness to stick it out for the team.  He makes def. backs look bad even though he is double teamed every play.  Most of all, he seems to be a class act in a league of self-centered egomaniacs.  The Texans will definately need him healthy next year, if they plan on making any waves the the NFL.  Good call to stop now and get the ankle fixed befor it get even worse.  Hope to see him back 100% next year.

Andre Johnson to have ankle surgery

typical wrong cbs article, josh katzowitz is really margaret smith, a soap opera reporter. its the only answer, cbs is always wrong in there sports reporting. a. johnson has only missed week 16, not the past three games, even if he meant LAST 3 he is still wrong. if he misses week 17 its last 2, how hard is it for them to proof read an article, morons.
