John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans WR Andre Johnson will not be able to return for the teams Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens. McClain added that he may not even be ready to return in Week 7 either.
“We’ll see where he’s at each week,” said Gary Kubiak on Monday. “As of right now, the soreness has gone away, and his rehab has picked up.” In spite of these developments, there is still no set plan for when he’ll return.
Houston’s passing attack was able to put up numbers even without Johnson but it’s hard to say that he wouldn’t have had an impact on Sunday’s game. The final play of the game would have been much different if Matt Schaub was trying to throw the ball to Johnson instead of Jacoby Jones.
