Andre Johnson gets knee scoped, says he'll be ready by Texans training camp

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer
Johnson now will get an extra two months to rest after undergoing knee surgery.

Texans receiver Andre Johnson couldn't stay healthy last year, missing nine regular-season games with a bum hamstring and ankle that kept him to a mortal 33 catches and two touchdowns.

Johnson apparently still isn't completely healthy.

As multiple reports out of Houston stated Monday, Johnson is not participating in Texans OTAs after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery earlier this month. Johnson said he hyperextended his knee last year vs. the Jaguars.

He called the surgery “nothing to panic about,” and that he had no pain before the surgery and no pain afterward.

That said, Johnson won't plan to return to practice until training camp.
