Texans' Johnson to miss three weeks

BY foxsports • October 4, 2011

Houston Texans All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson is having a minor medical procedure on his injured hamstring Tuesday and is expected to miss three weeks, myFOXhouston.com reported, citing sources.

The aim of the procedure is to eliminate scar tissue to speed up the healing process related to his right hamstring.

Johnson strained the hamstring in the second quarter of the Texans' 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at Reliant Stadium.

Johnson, the Texans' former first-round pick out of the University of Miami, has led Houston in receiving yards every year since being drafted in 2003.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak had already said if Johnson did not play against the Oakland Raiders this Sunday that Jacoby Jones would start opposite Kevin Walter at receiver, with Bryant Johnson and David Anderson becoming part of the rotation.
