Andre Johnson could return Monday, Kubiak says

Posted Jul 31, 2012

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday that he hopes injured wide receiver Andre Johnson could return to the field next Monday.


Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday that he hopes injured wide receiver Andre Johnson could return to the field next Monday.

Johnson pulled his groin while making a catch during Sunday morning’s training camp practice at the Methodist Training Center. An MRI revealed it to be a minor injury. The All-Pro receiver has been able to jog lightly at practice as he moves with the team from period to period.

“I would say next week,” Kubiak said of Johnson’s targeted return date. “I’d love to tell you that’s Monday. I hope it’s Monday, but I would say next week.”

With Johnson out, second-year receiver Lestar Jean has been practicing as a starter along with veteran Kevin Walter. Rookie third-round draft pick DeVier Posey has stood out in practice with several nice catches over the last two days.

Cornerback Kareem Jackson missed practice on Tuesday with a sore left hamstring that has kept him out since Sunday afternoon. He is day-to-day. Brice McCain continues to work as a starter in his place.

Kubiak also rested nose tackle Shaun Cody and tight end Owen Daniels on Tuesday. He plans to rest the two veterans every third or fourth day to keep them fresh.

Second-year cornerback Brandon Harris, who has had an impressive start to camp, rolled his ankle on Tuesday morning but was able to return to practice.
