According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson underwent a knee scope two and a half weeks ago. He plans on being ready for training camp.
Johnson also had his ankle and hamstring surgically repaired in 2011. It certainly wouldn’t be a good sign if he ends up on the mend once again in 2012.
