Johnson To Undergo MRI On Injured Hamstring

Receiver Andre Johnson suffered a right hamstring injury in the second quarter of Houston’s 17-10 win over the Steelers. Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson would undergo tests Sunday night, so his status remained uncertain for next week’s game against Oakland.

“Now, if we have to go without him for a period,” Kubiak said, “we’re going to have to really ask some guys to step up to the plate.” Texans owner Bob McNair refused to speculate on the severity of Johnson’s injury. “I am not going to be overly concerned until the MRI,” McNair told ESPN.

The five-time Pro Bowler caught a 13-yard pass in the second quarter and was holding the back of his right leg near the knee after he fell to the ground. He pulled up at the end of the play, but was not hit.”The way he went down was deflating,” Kubiak said, “because it was like he just got shot. So that scares the heck out of you.”
