Andre Johnson, Chris Myers leave game early

NEW ORLEANS – Texans All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson and Pro Bowl center Chris Myers both went to the locker room in the first half of Saturday’s preseason game against the Saints, but neither player had a serious injury.

Johnson got the wind knocked out of him after falling on the ball while attempting to make a catch early in the second quarter. Myers was sick.

"(Johnson) was real sore, so we took him for some X-rays just to make sure," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "They all came back fine. He’s fine. He was just sore. I had him planned to play 25 plays, he ended up playing 18, so we’re OK there."

Johnson said there were no lingering effects from the play and that he would have returned if it were a regular-season game.

"They just took me back for precautionary reasons," Johnson said. "I wasn’t worried. I’ve had the wind knocked out of me before. I’ve just been going through so many injuries and everything, I could hurt a finger or something, they’d probably want to make sure everything’s alright. I’m fine. It’s no big deal."

Myers was feeling sick before the game but told the coaches he wanted to play.

"We need to play, so we let him go," Kubiak said. "He was doing fine. I think it was after the second series or the third one, he came over and said he was really just feeling bad, so I told (offensive line coach) John (Benton), 'That’s enough, let’s just keep him out.' That was me pulling him. He would have kept going. Just wasn’t feeling ogod all night."

Myers was replaced in the second quarter by rookie center Ben Jones, a fourth-round draft pick from Georgia.

Kubiak said Texans running back Ben Tate, outside linebacker Bryan Braman and safety Shiloh Keo suffered minor injuries, but "nothing that's going to keep these guys from being ready to go."
