News: Johnson (ankle) caught 5-of-9 targets for 77 yards in Monday's 30-23 loss to the Steelers. Impact: Johnson had just one catch for four yards at the end of three quarters, but he finally got it going during a failed comeback bid. This kind of mediocre receiving line is becoming all to familiar for owners, as Johnson is stuck in a below-average offense, catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Johnson also isn't quite getting the volume he did last season, averaging a still-lofty nine targets per game, down from 11.3 in 2013. He's on track for a respectable 1,111 receiving yards on 89 receptions as the center of Fitzpatrick's attention, but Johnson's historical lack of touchdowns has become all the more problematic in the Texans' current offense. Houston has scored just 14 offensive touchdowns in seven games, with Arian Foster accounting for six of those.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Steelers, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: Johnson, who tops the Texans with 34 catches and an average of 69.8 receiving yards through six games overall, recorded a season-high 99 yards in Week 6 against the Colts, while also finding the end zone for the first time this season.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 18, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Steelers, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Johnson's availability for Monday was never in any serious jeopardy, but his ability to practice in full Saturday should ease any remaining concerns about the ankle. The veteran wideout found pay dirt for the first time in 2014 in Week 6, but fell one yard shy of his first 100-yard receiving effort.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) was limited at practice Friday, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: We'll continue to track Johnson's status, but so far there is nothing to suggest that his availability for Monday's game against the Steelers is in any danger.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 16, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) was limited at practice Thursday, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: More on Johnson's status in the coming days, but with no reported setbacks in Week 6, we suspect that the wideout's limitations Thursday are maintenance-related in advance of Monday's game against the Steelers.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson was outstanding Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Impact: Johnson had been slowed by an ankle injury but had seven catches for 99 yards with one score.(STATS, 1:49pm)
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Johnson caught 7-of-12 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 33-28 loss to the Colts. Impact: Johnson finally got his first touchdown of the season, but he also lost a fumble on his team's second-to-last drive. He's garnered a huge portion of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's attention this season, accounting for 54 of his team's 161 targets (33.5%) through six games, albeit in an offense that heavily favors the run. Johnson should continue to be a consistent source of receptions, but big games will be hard to come by in this offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson was active Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts. Impact: He had been slowed by an ankle injury.(STATS, 6:47pm)
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Colts, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: Though Johnson did not practice during the Texans' short week in advance of the contest, he'll give it a go Thursday and figures to see his share of Week 6 targets in the absence of any setbacks with his ankle. The veteran wideout also entered this past Sunday's game against Dallas with a questionable designation and managed to record five catches for 58 yards on eight targets.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 8, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Colts, the Texans' official site reports. Impact: Johnson didn't take part in practice during the Texans' short week, so his status is worth tracking in advance of Thursday's 8:25 ET kickoff, given that he is the only player the team labeled as questionable for the contest. Meanwhile, the Texans list 18 players as probable this week.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 7, 2014
News: Johnson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Johnson's balky ankle required additional maintenance Tuesday, but coach Bill O'Brien predicted that the 33-year-old wideout will be able to give it a go Thursday against Indianapolis. Ideally, Johnson would get in at least a limited showing Wednesday to help ease concerns among his fantasy owners, but the veteran wideout played through the issue last week, hauling in five-of-eight targets for 58 yards in a loss to Dallas.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 7, 2014
News: Johnson did not participate in Monday's walkthrough, CSN Houston reports. The Texans play Thursday night against the Colts. Impact: Eleven Houston players were non-participants the day after playing in Dallas, so we're not putting much value in this. We'll re-visit Johnson's status at practices Tuesday and Wednesday.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 6, 2014
News: Johnson became the second-fastest receiver to 950 catches by finishing with five Sunday, giving him 954 after 159 games. Impact: He'll have to wait at least another week to be the second fastest to 13,000 yards, finishing with 58 on Sunday to fall 19 yards short. He has two more games to beat Marvin Harrison's mark of 162 games. Jerry Rice did it in 154.(STATS, 08:34am)
