Five-time Pro Bowl receiver Andre Johnson will miss the Houston Texans' game against Oakland this weekend because of a right hamstring injury that could sideline him for several weeks, the team announced on Wednesday.
Johnson, who was injured during the second quarter of the 17-10 win over Pittsburgh last weekend, underwent a procedure on his right leg and will not be available for Houston's home game against the Raiders on Sunday.
We know we're going to miss him for a period of time. We're not putting any timeline on anything right now, Texans coach Gary Kubiak told the team's website (houstontexans.com).
He did have the procedure done (Tuesday). Everything went well. The doctors feel good about it, Andre feels good about it.
One of the premier receivers in football, Johnson led the NFL in receiving yards in 2008 and 2009.
While Johnson leads the Texans with 25 catches and 352 yards this season, Houston does have some experience playing without their top receiver, including last season when he missed three games with an ankle sprain.
