The Texans could be without star WR Andre Johnson for three weeks because of a hamstring injury.

PFW correspondent and Houston Chronicle writer John McClain reported that Johnson had a procedure done on his hamstring Tuesday to prevent scar tissue and speed his recovery. According to McClain, Johnson could miss three weeks.

In four games this season, Johnson has 25 catches for 352 yards and two touchdowns. He has 52 career TDs.

Jacoby Jones will start in Johnson's place opposite Kevin Walter.

The way we see it

There is a big drop-off at receiver in Houston after Johnson. Last week, TE Owen Daniels led the team in receiving and he will be relied upon often with Johnson out, as will RB Arian Foster in the receiving game.
