On Monday, Gary Kubiak wasn't sure how long he'd be without Andre Johnson(US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

First, the good news: Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson didn't blow out his knee, which is exactly what appeared to happen when he went down in a heap, untouched, during the second quarter of the Pittsburgh-Houston game Sunday. Instead, Johnson was diagnosed with a hamstring injury.

On Monday, head coach Gary Kubiak admitted that the team didn't know how long Johnson would be out. A day later, reinforcing what CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman had already noted, ESPN's John Clayton said Johnson's "definitely gonna miss the Raiders game and probably two or three weeks after that. ... Probably three weeks."

If Clayton's right -- and at this point it's just a report -- that would mean that, in addition to the Week 5 matchup with the Raiders, Johnson would also miss the Ravens in Week 6 and the Titans in Week 7 (which must be a huge weight off Cortland Finnegan's mind).

A day ago, Kubiak couldn't specify just how long Johnson would be out.

"It's hard for me to give you an answer right now," Kubiak said Monday. "He's going to miss some time. I don't know if that's three or four days. I don't know if that's a few weeks.

"We're dealing with a hamstring — we know that. We're still in an evaluation process. We're going to get a couple different opinions over the course of the next two days. Once we get a better evaluation and see how he progresses over the next two days, I can probably answer your question better."

If Johnson can't go, wideouts Jacoby Jones, Kevin Walter. Bryant Johnson and David Anderson would all move up the depth chart. Of course, if Arian Foster continues to play like he did against the Steelers (he had 30 carries for 155 yards and a touchdown), the Texans won't have much need for a passing game.

I'm glad you threw in the "hurt my fantasy team" comment.  Why don't you play NFL football and stretch all you want and try not to get injured?  This isn't pitch and catch in the backyard...

I hope Andre Johnson has a quick and full recovery. He is fun to watch play. I am glad he did not blowout a knee but hamstrings can linger around.

I was really looking forward to seeing him torch the Raiders. Hopefully other guys will step up and help stomp the Raiders.

The Texans look good this year and the Raiders are playing pretty good. I will have to go with The Texans in my pool so I hope they win.

Go Texans !!!

If the retard actually would have stretched before the game, he may not be injured right now and hurt my fantasy team. Athletes should NEVER pull groins, quads, or hamstrings IF THEY STRETCH PROPERLY!!!!
