ESPN.com is reporting that all pro wide receiver Andre Johnson suffered a mild groin injury after the Texans second morning practice on Sunday.
Johnson fell after running a crossing route and had an MRI later in the day.
“It just tightened up on me,” the five-time Pro Bowl receiver said. “I had hit the ground pretty hard, stretching out for a ball. That was pretty much it.”
“Nothing that I’m not used to, doing rehab,” Johnson said. “It’s very frustrating, but it happens, man. I wish I had some control over it. Unfortunately, I don’t.”
Johnson will be out a week or so.
The star wide receiver has been a bit injury plagued over the last year or so.
Johnson missed 9 games last season with a serious hamstring injury and also missed a good portion of OTA’s after having knee surgery during the spring.
I’m sure Johnson will be brought back slowly but it still is something to keep an eye on. Especially for fantasy owners.
