After being ruled out for Week 3’s game vs. Indianapolis, the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans coach Gary Kubiak said that Johnson’s worst-case scenario would be missing up to five weeks (major) because of his seriously sprained left knee. “I’m very optimistic, especially with a guy like him who’s a really hard worker and very well-conditioned player,” Kubiak added. “If anybody should make it back quicker than the doctors think that he can, it’s probably that guy. So I’m going to be on the optimistic side.”
Analysis: The Chronicle also added in Thursday’s edition that Johnson was wearing a leg immobilizer and was still, clearly limping. Hopefully Johnson can get healthy quick — the Texans need it. Of Matt Schaub’s 452 pass yards through two games, Johnson has caught more than half of it. If you own Johnson, keep him reserved for Week 3 Fantasy action and make alternative plans. He is a No. 1 Fantasy WR when healthy.
