Andre Johnson tops 10,000 career receiving yards in loss

Posted Oct 14, 2012

Wide receiver Andre Johnson surpassed 10,000 career receiving yards in the Texans’ lopsided Sunday night loss to the Green Bay Packers.



Wide receiver Andre Johnson surpassed 10,000 career receiving yards in the Texans’ lopsided Sunday night loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Johnson became the sixth-fastest receiver to 10,000 yards in NFL history, reaching the milestone in his 128th career game. The only players who did it faster were Torry Holt (116 games), Jerry Rice (119), Marvin Harrison (122), Michael Irvin (123) and Randy Moss (124). Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald surpassed 10,000 yards on Sunday afternoon in his 130th game.

“It’s a big accomplishment,” Johnson said. “It’s just unfortunate that we couldn’t get the win.  By the way things played out tonight, it doesn’t feel good.”

Johnson is the 38th player in NFL history with 10,000 receiving yards. He’s the seventh active player, joining Fitzgerald, Donald Driver, Steve Smith, Reggie Wayne, Tony Gonzalez and Moss.

Johnson entered Sunday’s game needing 61 yards to reach 10,000. He wound up with eight catches for 75 yards. The five-time Pro Bowler joined 10,000 club on a 15-yard catch in the fourth quarter with 11:44 remaining and the Texans trailing 42-17.

“Like I said, it’s a great accomplishment,” Johnson said. “Not many people have done it. I’ve been very fortunate over my career to do some good things. What happened tonight doesn’t make it good.”

Johnson was understandably frustrated after the Texans lost for the first time all season on Sunday. They were outscored 42-24 after winning their first five games by an average of 15.3 points.

“It was shocking, but if you go out and play the way we played, that’s what happens,” Johnson said. “They were explosive offensively. If we don’t go out and move the ball, then we leave our defense out on the field and give them a chance to give up points. It’s no secret. We know what type of team we are. They’re the Super Bowl champs from a couple of years ago, so we knew what we were in for. We just didn’t go out and play the way we needed to play.”
