When Andre Johnson went down to a phantom tackle a few weeks back, he looked like he might not return this year. But Johnson has improved with each passing day and should be ready to go on Sunday versus Jacksonville.
The Jags are coming off a stunning win on Monday night against the seemingly strong Ravens. The Texans, though, have a very different attack.
Jacksonville is 10th in the NFL against the run, and it used its smothering front line and linebackers to slow down Ray Rice. Houston is a little more balanced than the Jags, and Johnson is hungry.
With the sixth-ranked passing defense, Johnson will have his hands full with the Jaguars' secondary. But the fact that he's been sidelined for a few weeks now means he'll want to contribute heavily to a Houston win.
