Big milestone within reach for Texans veteran | Daily Brew

Nobody's played more games as a Houston Texan than Andre Johnson.

But that might change a little after the middle of this season.

Long snapper Jon Weeks, currently the longest-tenured Texan on the squad, has appeared in 160 straight games since signing as a free agent in the spring of 2010. He's also played in every one of the franchise's 10 playoff contests, the only one to do so.

If he suits up and snaps the ball in 10 more games this season, he'll move past Johnson, the franchise leader with 169 games played. Johnson, who is currently a special adviser to general manager and head coach Bill O'Brien, starred for the team from 2003 through 2014.

Weeks has played through injuries, and never missed a game during his time in Houston. He was a Pro Bowler following the 2015 campaign.

If the schedule is played on time, and Weeks is healthy throughout, he would tie Johnson on November 15 at Cleveland, and pass him the next week at home against the Patriots.
