Johnson (concussion) will not return from injured reserve by Week 11, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.
Johnson is considered a candidate to return from injured reserve this season, but it appears that the former first-round pick is still a ways from returning to the field. The fourth-year pro suffered a concussion during the team's loss to New England in Week 1. Expect an update on Johnson's health following Houston's bye week in Week 10.
Whether he returns at some point could depend on who else lands on the list in the coming weeks. If he's one of the few on the list who could return and has cleared the protocol, Johnson could eventually rejoin the Texans' secondary.
Johnson (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Texans plan to designate Johnson for return, meaning he can return to game action in eight weeks. After dealing with a concussion during the preseason, Johnson suffered a second concussion during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Johnson (concussion) is expected to be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
With the given timetable, Johnson is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve with the chance to return, which would also allow the Texans to sign another defensive back while Johnson is sidelined. This is the second concussion Johnson has suffered in the last month, so Houston will have to be extra cautious with the young cornerback while he recovers. In Johnson's absence, Aaron Colvin is the most likely replacement to line up at cornerback across from Johnathan Joseph.
Johnson suffered the concussion in the preseason and hasn't been able to get back to the practice field. Head injuries are often difficult to set concrete timetables for, but it seems safe to say that Johnson will be out for a couple more weeks at the very least.
