Andre Johnson, Duane Brown set to return Monday

Posted Aug 4, 2012

When the Texans return to practice on Monday morning, three injured starters will likely be back on the field.



The Texans finished their first full week of training camp on Saturday morning at the Methodist Training Center. When they return to practice on Monday morning, three injured starters will likely be back on the field.

Wide receiver Andre Johnson (groin), left tackle Duane Brown (ankle) and cornerback Kareem Jackson (hamstring), who all suffered injuries this week, are on track to return as the Texans prepare for their Aug. 11 preseason opener at Carolina.

“I expect all three of those guys back,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said on Saturday. “Obviously, we’ll have a plan for them for how they come back, but I expect them all out on Monday.”

Johnson, a five-time Pro Bowler who’s entering his 10th NFL season, was the Texans’ first major injury scare of camp. After missing nine games with hamstring injuries in 2011 and having arthroscopic knee surgery in May, he pulled his groin on the second day of practice. He has been running with Texans head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan since Thursday and said that his recovery is going well.

“I expect him to be on the field Monday,” Kubiak said. “It’s my job to put the plan together to how we bring him along next week, but I expect him to be out here.”

Brown has been out since Wednesday morning, when he suffered a bone bruise in his left ankle after colliding with a teammate on a running play. Jackson has been out since Sunday with a sore left hamstring.

In other injury news, undrafted rookie wide receiver Jerrell Jackson will be out for 8-10 days with what Kubiak described as a “pretty good quad pull.”

“We like him a lot,” Kubiak said of Jackson (6-0, 192), a Houston native who played at Missouri. “We’ll wait on him because we think he’s got a ton of talent.”

Second-year defensive lineman Ra’Shon Harris suffered a minor injury on Saturday morning, but the Texans were otherwise healthy on the final two days of the week.

“Sonnie (Harris) got a little nicked on us,” Kubiak said. “I think it was a groin or a quad, but we don’t think it’s bad. But we finished good. We had a really good week.

“We’ve got some guys nicked up right now, but we know we’re getting them back. So where we stand right now, I like it moving forward. I think we ended it with a good day today. I took the pads off of them the last half hour.  That’s the most reps we’ll ever have in a practice all year long. This is a tough week, but we made it through and (will) keep going.”
