Found May 22, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
It has been revealed in a report on houstontexans.com that wide receiver Andre Johnson had knee surgery earlier this month. The surgery was described as “minor” and Johnson says he’ll be ready for Training Camp. Andre Johnson has been one of the most talented wide receivers over the past decade, but has always had issues with injuries. Now on the wrong side of 30, it’s reasonable to question Johnson’s longevity and how long he’ll be able to remain an elite wide receiver. Even elite wide receivers drop off a cliff statistically around age 34. It’s definitely possible that Johnson, who turns 31 in July, could do so earlier than that. There’s a reason why the Texans used 2 draft picks on receivers in the 2012 NFL Draft, DeVier Posey in the 3rd round and Keshawn Martin in the 5th round. In 9 seasons, Andre Johnson has 706 catches for 9656 yards and 52 touchdowns. He ranks 39th all-time in receiving yards.
