Starting cornerback Kevin Johnson is back and should provide a nice spark to the Houston Texans’ secondary.

The Houston Texans’ secondary has been missing starting cornerback Kevin Johnson ever since he went down with a sprained MCL back in week two against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The good news is that Johnson was back on the practice field on Monday and Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien says he looked good.

The Texan’s pass defense is actually ranked 10th in the NFL, as they give up 204.4 yards per game.  So things haven’t been a complete disaster. But Houston has been exposed by teams like the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs during their first six games.

Johnson is a talented cornerback who has had a hard time staying healthy during his young career. He suffered an injury last year that paved the way for A.J. Bouye to have a breakout year and land a large free agent contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Deshaun Watson will have his work cut out for him this week.

When it comes to the Texans and their offense, rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson will have a very difficult test on the road this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

A rookie quarterback hasn’t won in Seattle since 2011.

Watson almost pulled off a win in New England this season despite the fact that Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick has never lost to a rookie quarterback at home.

Watson has the confidence and composure to pull off an upset in Seattle.

Comment below and give us your thoughts on Johnson coming back and Watson’s chances of getting a win in Seattle.
