Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson topped 11,000 career receiving yards on Sunday at Reliant Stadium against the Indianapolis Colts.

With 11 catches for 151 yards, Johnson became the third-fastest player in NFL history and 28th overall to 11,000 receiving yards. He surpassed the milestone with a 16-yard catch on the final play of the third quarter of the Texans' 29-17 victory.

“I don’t really keep up with stats,” Johnson said. “It’s a great accomplishment. Not many people have done it, but I think things like that are something that you’ll look back on after you finish playing.”

Johnson, 31, topped 11,000 yards in the 136th game of his career. Hall of Famer Jerry Rice and Torry Holt did it in 131 games. The next-fastest players to 11,000 were Hall of Famer Michael Irvin (137 games), Randy Moss (141) and Jimmy Smith (142).

Earlier this season, Johnson eclipsed 10,000 receiving yards in Week 6 against Green Bay. He was the sixth-fastest in league history to 10,000, doing so in 128 games.

“I’ve been around this league a long time and I’ve been fortunate to be with some Hall of Fame football players, and I think you’re looking at one all the time,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “I know we appreciate it here, but I don’t think (we) really understand how great a player he is, but we’ll all understand here down the road when he’s not doing it anymore. He’s a special player, and a special person.”

Johnson, 31, now has 93 catches for 1,360 yards in his 10th NFL season. He’s on pace for 106 catches and 1,554 yards. It would be his third 1,500-yard season, which would tie Marvin Harrison for the second-most in NFL history behind only Rice (4).

Johnson has 43 100-yard receiving games in his career and three 150-yard games in the last five weeks.

“He’s the ‘go’ for this team, and right now, he’s money,” Kubiak said. “You can count on him. They doubled him a bunch today; he still found ways to make plays and has continued to do that and play well.”

Sunday marked the 16th 10-catch, 100-yard game of Johnson’s career, which tied Wes Welker for the NFL record.

“Nothing he does at this point surprises me,” Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said. “That’s just him being himself and just playing the game.”
