All Pro Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson re-aggravated his ankle injury in the second half of Sunday’s loss against the Cowboys. Johnson had originally injured his ankle in the Texans win over the Redskins in Week 2. Jonson told the Houston Chronicle that the team will treat his injury as they did last week.
“I re-aggravated my ankle sprain,” he said. “We’re going to do the same thing we did last week as far as treating it.”
Johnson isn’t worried about making the injury worse.
“I’m not worried about that,” he said. “I’m not worried about my ankle when I’m out there. I’m trying to help the team win a game. That’s my focus.
“I felt pain when I got tackled today. That’s the only reason I came off the field. Doctor checked it out and told me I hadn’t done anything worse to it. I’m going to feel pain every time I get hit on it if I continue to play. I have to come out for a few plays until it goes away. That’s what I’m going to continue to do until it gets better.”
