Texans WR Andre Johnson will be a game-time decision with shin injury
A very tough upcoming matchup for the Texans' passing game could look much worse if Matt Schaub and company are without wide receiver Andre Johnson . He didn't practice Wednesday, and head coach Gary Kubiak didn't add much optimism when he said Johnson is "very sore" and will be a game-time decision for Sunday home game versus the Seahawks. Johnson suffered a bruised shin in Week 3.
If Johnson is active, you probably have to give him a spot in your starting lineup, but considering the matchup, it would be much easier for us fantasy owners if he just sat this one out. DeAndre Hopkins would become Schaub's No. 1 target, but I'm not sure that's a really good thing on a day where he will probably see a lot of Richard Sherman .
