The Houston Texans were able to escape the Tennessee titans at home last week without a loss, but that will be a much tougher task to do this week on the road at Baltimore if they are without their best receiving threat.
With a crucial AFC matchup against the Super Bowl-champion Ravens on the docket, a win would not only put the Texans at 3-0, but give them a head-to-head win over a team that they could very well be fighting for playoff positioning with at the end of the season. The two sides has split the past two meetings, the most recent being a Texans 43-13 shellacking of Baltimore.
Johnson continues to recover from a concussion suffered late in Sunday’s overtime win over the Titans, and he didn’t practice today. Johnson is reportedly responding well and is expected to play, according to Texans coach Gary Kubiak.
The Texans are one of five undefeated teams in the AFC, are the first team since the merger in 1970 to win each of their first two games of a season on the final play of the game, and Johnson was key in both of those wins as he made game-deciding plays in each contest.
