Kubiak not sure how long Johnson will be out

Andre JohnsonPosted by Josh Katzowitz

The most-watched hamstring in Houston these days is going to get a second opinion. Which is probably not good news for Texans receiver Andre Johnson, who injured his hamstring during Sundays’ win against the Steelers.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said (via the Houston Chronicle) that Johnson is being evaluated and the team might not know for a while how long he’ll be missing in action. But as SI.com’s Will Carroll points out, “Second opinion on Andre Johnson's hamstring is very bad news. That's usually when someone hears something they don't like.”

"We're going to get a couple of different opinions over the next couple of days,” Kubiak said. “Obviously, it's a big concern going forward. We have to do what's best for Andre. He's going to miss some time. Right now, I don't know if that's three or four days or a few weeks."

The fact Kubiak didn’t say “a few months” at the end of his previous sentence might be good news. Or it might not mean anything considering he just admitted he doesn’t know how long Johnson will be out. But it sounds like it’s not a knee injury -- which obviously is good news.

And, if you really want to see that silver lining, the Texans still managed to beat the Steelers without Houston’s best player in the lineup.

"You don't replace Andre Johnson," Kubiak said. "Others have to pick it up the way they did Sunday. If he's going to miss some time, the other players will really have to stick up."

Watching that game Sunday and listening to the deafening silence that came over that stadium made me cringe. This guy is so freaking fun to watch and was only going to get better now that Foster is back. I have Andre on my fantasy team and am bummed to lose him BUT I hope that for his sake an not my fantasy teams sake he didn't injure it too badly. Hate to see one of the young studs in football be out for a long period of time. He makes the game more fun to watch. Here's to a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing you back on the field soon.

All of you fantasy haters need to stfu, hating on fantasy is like hating on smart phones, dont like it, get left in the dust, fine by me, just dont talk shit because your part of the 5% of male sports fans that hasnt enhanced his nfl day by getting in a fantasy league

and how is it any different for kubiak to exclaim that they want him back asap and will miss him etc than it is for a fantasy team owner to have the same feelings

you think kubiak is lamenting about losing his date to the dance, hell no, he lost his star and it tilted, just like fantasy owners...

Johnson is a class act and one of the best receivers out there.Sucks that Foster comes back from a Hammy injury and Johnson goes down to one in the same game.

Why? I have about as much concern for Andre Johnson as he does for me. He gets paid. And if can't do what he gets paid for get someone else who can. I don't give a damn about any of these players.
