Texans RB Duke Johnson won't play in his new team's 2nd preseason game, according to insider Aaron Wilson. Johnson is still dealing with the hamstring injury that had him sidelined at Browns camp. We haven't heard a target date for his return, but he needs the practice reps with his new offense.
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.
