“He’s very close,” said Kubiak. “When he got pushed Monday, the response was, ‘No, not yet.’…We’ll get there.”
As we mentioned earlier in the week, Houston wants to see Johnson fully healed before allowing him to return to game action. The Texans have been making use of their tight ends Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen while Johnson has been out. Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones have also been apart of the teams game play but their production has been up and down throughout the last few weeks. The Texans get the Browns this week so I’m sure they’ll be able to get by without the Johnson for another week.
