Manager Joe Girardi says Teixeira will undergo an MRI exam when the Yankees return home Monday.
Johnson started at first base Saturday, and Girardi says Johnson will get the bulk of the playing time in Teixeira's absence. Dean Anna, Francisco Cervelli and Yangervis Solarte could also see time at first.
Teixeira was limited to 15 games last season after hurting his right wrist at the World Baseball Classic.
