Browns RB Duke Johnson missed Saturday's practice with a right hamstring injury. "We don't know the specifics," HC Freddie Kitchens told the Akron Beacon Journal. "We are going to see how it progresses. Duke is a quick healer, but we want to be cautious. We have to make sure the guy is healthy and that it is not something that lingers." RB Kareem Hunt has also sat out camp practices to this point with a groin injury.
Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He's not a Week 2 fantasy option, but his absence would mean a few extra touches for RB David Johnson.
Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is "a long shot" to play against the Ravens on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "However, playing in Week 3 is possible, an indication it’s not a serious injury," Rapoport adds. David Johnson will dominate backfield work for Houston in Week 2, which helps offset the tough matchup.
Texans RB Duke Johnson has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Johnson's availability for Week 2 "is now in question," Schefter adds. We'll monitor Johnson's practice participation this coming week, but he was working clearly behind RB David Johnson before going down on Thursday night.
Texans RB Duke Johnson suffered a leg injury in Thursday night's opener in Kansas City and didn't return. We'll look for an update on his status. Johnson's absence would mean more work for RB David Johnson, who looked good in his Texans debut. Buddy Howell is currently the only other RB on the roster.
Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that RB Duke Johnson has "picked [the offense] up really well." O'Brien added, "He's a very bright guy." Johnson joined the Texans less than 3 weeks ago but figures to play a big role right out of the gate with RB Lamar Miller out for the season. RB tends to be 1 of the easier positions at which to settle into a new system, so we're not overly concerned with Johnson's short time with the team.
