Andre Johnson hurt in Steelers-Texans
By Paul Kuharsky
HOUSTON -- Andre Johnson went down untouched after a second-quarter reception for the Texans against the Steelers, writhing in pain and holding the back of his right knee.
After trainers attended to him, he got up and left the field under his own power.
He paused briefly in the bench area, then walked with team personnel to the locker room, moving slowly and with the injured leg staying stiff.
Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter are now working as the top two Texans’ receivers and Houston throws a bunch to tight end Owen Daniels.
Bryant Johnson is the only other active wide receiver. David Anderson was a pregame scratch.
The Texans have a 10-0 lead on Pittsburgh.
