Johnson injured his shin in the second quarter last week against the Baltimore Ravens.
It has been a tough season for Johnson, thus far, as he hasn’t completed the past two games due to injuries suffered in consecutive games. In week two, Johnson suffered a concussion and last week he had the shin injury.
Having Johnson in the lineup is always a must for the Texans, especially against a defense the caliber of the Seahawks as they are the No. 1 ranked team in the NFL in pass defense.
The Texans need Johnson on the field, just to take the No. 1 pressure off of rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, along with opening up the rest of the offense. The Texans have struggled offensively recently, especially last week where they didn’t score a touchdown.
This season, Johnson has 25 receptions for 258 yards and no touchdowns. He’s averaging 10. 3 yards per reception.
