Texans WR Johnson to miss three games?

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will miss at least two weeks after undergoing a medical procedure on his right hamstring, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The five-time Pro Bowl pass catcher suffered the non-contact injury during the second quarter of the Texans’ 17-10 triumph over the Steelers. Initially believed to be a knee injury, the Texans announced in the second half that the injury was to the hamstring.

According to McClain, the procedure Johnson underwent today featured the prevention of scar tissue near the small tear in Johnson’s hamstring, which will reportedly help hurry up the healing stages.

The former Hurricane standout leads the Texans with 25 catches for 352 yards and has a pair of trips to paydirt this season.
