Oh no! This can’t be happening again. This is probably what’s running through the head of five-time Pro Bowler, Andre Johnson.
The All-Star wide receiver hasn’t been the same for quite a while due to setbacks. Last year  brought a whole bunch of ailing injuries [right hamstring against the Steelers in October and left hamstring against Atlanta in December].
As we begin NFL training camps, it was the same scary “story” once again on Day 2 for the Texans. During Sunday afternoon practice, Andre Johnson had injured his groin muscle after going down for a thrown ball.
“He [Johnson] made a couple of plays down there, went down for a ball and felt it pull a little bit,” said coach Kubiak. He [Johnson] wanted to go some more, but we’re the ones that pulled him out. We’ll be smart with him, but obviously we’ll need him back as soon as possible.”
Texans’ coach Gary Kubiak doesn’t anticipate the injury to be a lingering factor. The team wants to make all the right decisions when it comes to preparing Johnson for the upcoming season, especially because training camp has just started.
“It’s disappointing,” said Kubiak. “I don’t think we’re staring at anything significant. We’ll let you guys know more.”
Every year, the Houston Texans are favored to a certain degree in the AFC South. However, negative situations, most of which happen to be injuries tend to always prevent this team from reaching their highest capabilities.
Plain and simple, if the Texans are going to make noise in their division and in the NFL, they are going to need Andre Johnson for the entire season.
There’s really no other way to look at it.
