Johnson (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Johnson was diagnosed with a Grade 2 knee sprain last week, so this comes as no surprise. Marcus Burley will likely fulfill the role of nickel corner for the Texans on Sunday, with Johnathan Joseph (shoulder) also expected to play.
Johnson has a Grade 2 sprained knee and has been ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. This is a big blow for the Texans defense, especially considering that the team did not believe that Johnson's injury was serious following Thursday's game. With Johnson now out for at least the next four games, both Kareem Jackson and Marcus Burley are in line for extended snaps in the secondary.
Johnson's (knee) injury is not currently regarded as serious, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. It appears to be good news for the Texans' secondary, though a full diagnosis has yet to come. If he ends up missing time, Kareem Jackson and Marcus Burley could be in line for increased reps.
Johnson has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game with a knee injury. Johnson's absence thins what is already a depleted secondary for the Texans, with Johnathan Joseph exiting the game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury. With both of Houston's starting cornerbacks out, Kareem Jackson and Marcus Burley will be forced to take on larger roles in the secondary.
Johnson (knee) is officially active for Thursday night's game against the Bengals. Johnson sustained a knee injury Monday and was limited in practice the rest of the week. The 25-year-old will likely start opposite of Johnathan Joseph at cornerback as the Texans hope to contain A.J. Green and the Bengals' offense.
