The right high ankle sprain suffered by Texans WR Andre Johnson in Week Two is something he continues to contend with, and it could be an issue that occasionally flares up as it did in Week Eight at Indianapolis. Yet, it is an injury he has been able to play with, save for missing the Week Four game vs. Oakland. "Hopefully, we can get through a few weeks with him being fine and not continuing to tweak it," Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said leading up to Week Nine. "But we don't feel like there is anything worse being done to it." Johnson, the Texans' top receiver, missed practice on Nov. 3 but practiced on a limited basis the next two days, the same pattern he has followed three times after injuring the ankle Sept. 19 at Washington. While Johnson's injury status remains basically unchanged, TE Owen Daniels aggravated a hamstring injury at Indianapolis, a disappointing setback after he had appeared to be rounding back into form.
