Houston Texans' receiver Andre Johnson has been cleared to play on Sunday

I have no idea where this Houston Texans team from last season has went, but they need to come back as soon as possible.

I figured these guys would be more of a threat this season than last season, but as of right now it looks they are struggling to put one foot in front of the other. Don’t get me wrong, this team is growing on me. One of my favorite players in the league (Danieal Manning) happens to still be on their roster, so when Chicago isn’t playing against Houston, I’m pulling for them.

Last Sunday Johnson went down after taking a shot from the hard hitting Bernard Pollard (who nearly killed a couple players last season, not really, but almost) after bringing in a 21 yard reception which helped set up a game-tying score.

Last week had a couple of players exiting games due to concussions. Eddie Lacy and Brandon Mariweather who played against each other in Week 2, both suffered concussions. Mariweather knocked Lacy out of the game, but was later taken out himself after a collision with James Starks.

Now as for Johnson’s status for Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, he’s been cleared by team doctors and will suit up against the defending champions. With Baltimore’s struggling defense, Johnson should take apart this secondary, if the offensive line can protect Schaub.
