The Houston Texans have officially announced that wide receiver Andre Johnson will not play in their week 7 match up against the Tennessee Titans.  The Texans were hoping Johnson’s hamstring would have healed enough for Johnson to play in this important AFC South match up.  Right now the Texans are going with Jacoby Jones, Kevin Jones and Derrek Mason at receiver. This weekends game could make or break the Texans season.  If they lose they fall to 3-4 while the Titans will improve to 4-2 and take a commanding lead in the division. The Texans could really use Johnson at this point, but still have enough talent to win this game.
