Andre Johnson WR HOU 1 Month

Johnson did not play in Saturday's preseason game against Atlanta. DeVier Posey received the start at wideout in place of Johnson.

We're not surprised to see head coach Bill O'Brien keep Johnson sidelined. Houston's top receiver returned to practice this week after an extended absence due to a hamstring injury.

Johnson, who missed several days of training camp with a hamstring injury, practiced for a second consecutive day Thursday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Johnson was "closer to being full time," but has not determined whether the wideout will play this weekend against Atlanta.

Johnson (hamstring) was present for Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.

It remains to be seen if Johnson suits up for Saturday's preseason contest against the Falcons, but his presence on the practice field Wednesday would appear to confirm the notion previously put forth by coach Bill O'Brien that the veteran wideout's hamstring issue was a minor one.

Johnson (hamstring) may be able to play in this week's preseason game against Atlanta, the Texans' official site reports.

Johnson has been sidelined since the opening of camp with a hamstring, but head coach Bill O'Brien said "there is a shot" Johnson's plays this week.

Coach Bill O'Brien indicated that Johnson (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Cardinals.

The same applies to Arian Foster, and while Johnson hasn't practiced of late, so far there is nothing to suggest that his hamstring issue is a long-term concern.

Andre Johnson reported to training camp on Friday.

We can all breathe. Johnson was in Houston talking with Texans brass earlier this week, leading many to believe he would report to camp in time for Saturday's first practice. He did just that. Johnson's not going anywhere this year, and will be suiting up for the Texans and catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. He should still dominate targets, but Johnson's YPR average may take a blow. Even at 33, Johnson is still one of the premier receivers in football.

Andre Johnson's player rep has remained in contact with the Texans.

Johnson's agent declined comment on reports that Johnson had shown up at team facilities on Monday, but suggested tensions have cooled. For now, most signs point toward Johnson reporting for the Texans' first workout on Saturday.

ESPN Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez believes Andre Johnson would be a "natural" fit in Oakland.

We disagree because the Raiders are not close to playoff contention, and shouldn't be looking to surrender draft picks for 33-year-olds. But Gutierrez notes Johnson's history with Matt Schaub, the Raiders' need for a No. 1 receiver, and nearly $11 million in salary cap room. It's still difficult to imagine Johnson signing off on a trade to arguably the NFL's worst team. Vegas has Oakland tied with Jacksonville for the lowest win projection (4.5) in the league.

After speaking to four NFL executives regarding potential trade compensation for Andre Johnson, the Sideline View's Lance Zierlein received answers ranging from a second- to fifth-round pick.

Although the Houston Chronicle's John McClain has been adamant the Texans will not trade Johnson, it's worth remembering McClain was adamant for most of the pre-draft process that the Texans would not select Jadeveon Clowney at No. 1 overall. (They did.) We suspect GM Rick Smith would seriously consider dealing Johnson if a win-now team offered a 2015 second-round pick. If the offer were a fourth- or fifth-rounder, the Texans should comfortably pass.
