Chris Mortensen reported on Twitter this morning that Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson could be back by week 7. Johnson suffered a hamstring injury in week 4 against the Steelers. Mortensen says Johnson was running at practice Wednesday. The Texans are going to need a healthy Johnson in the lineup week 7 for an important AFC South match up when the Texans travel to Tennessee to play the Titans. The Texans traded for Derrik Mason this week in case Johnson isn’t ready to return to the field.

Kubiak won't rule out star wide-out just yetWhile there is no timetable for the return of Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, many reports have the five-time Pro Bowl selection at least missing Sunday’s game against the Ravens and likely the Oct. 23 game against the Tennessee Titans.
The Texans are expected to sign free agent WR Juaquin Iglesias to their practice squad on Wednesday. It could mean nothing, or it could mean something. On the heels of Tuesday night's Derrick Mason acquisition, CBS Sports' Mike Freeman is speculating that the receiver additions suggest Andre Johnson's recovery from hamstring surgery is going slower than anticipated.

Star wideout's absence doesn't guarantee anything for defense
The Houston Texans appeared like a different team without five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson in their 25-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
With their best wide receiver Andre Johnson out with a hamstring injury, and with their best linebacker Mario Williams out perhaps for the season, it is tempting to think the Houston Texans are going to be easy pickin's for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday at 4 P.M. (EST).The Texans will miss the vertical routes and the runs-after-catch that Andre Johnson brought... Andre Johnson...
We're in the second week of the 2011 NFL season, which means the Mad Lib columns will start. It's the strangest season. Look at all the surprises. Hasn't it been a weird year?
You might as well program those stories in your calendar. They happen every year in the NFL, the ultimate reshuffle league.
But annual madness doesn't have to bother us as fantasy owners....

The Baltimore Ravens face the Houston Texans this week and the teams seem to be on different paths.

Recently the Texans have acquired WR Derrick Mason from the Jets, and no he is not a rookie. He’s played for 15 years and has accumulated over 12,000 yards (that’s 2,500 more than WR Andre Johnson). He spent his career in Tennessee and Baltimore, where he is the all time leader in receptions, and has won 2 been to the Pro Bowl twice.So why did the Texans spend money on a future...
The Texans don't expect Jacoby Jones to be as good as Andre Johnson. That's not the issue.
The veteran was traded to Houston, for a conditional draft pick.I think this means that Andre Johnson isn’t coming back this week against Baltimore.Mason is at the end of his career, and is hanging on by a finger, with 13 catches for 115 yards in 4 games with NY. I like this trade because, who knows the Baltimore Ravens better than Derrick Mason himself? … [visit site to read...
With Andre Johnson out, the Ravens’ defense will turn most of its attention this week to shutting down Arian Foster and the rushing attack of the Texans. Matt Schaub has to have a strong game if the Texans have any shot of winning this game, which means the team will have to pass quite a bit
John McClain covers the Texans for the Houston Chronicle.
This is somewhat surprising, as Rex predicted Mason would have somewhere between 90 – 100 catches this season. Clearly, Mason hasn’t lived up to that hype, and it has seemed he never truly felt comfortable in Green and White. Mason made headlines when he complained to the media about the Jets offense, and he was benched...
