Houston star WR Andre Johnson limped off the field with an apparent foot injury in the third quarter of the Texans game vs. Washington, and he has not returned to the game.

Johnson was battling with Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall along the sideline, and a pass from Matt Schaub thrown toward Johnson fell incomplete. That’s apparently when Johnson hurt himself, and he gingerly walked off the field.

After a TD catch by Kevin Walter, CBS cameras showed Houston trainers examining Johnson's right foot, and a few minutes later, trainers were retaping his ankle as he put back on his shoe.

But then early in the fourth quarter, Johnson walked to the locker room. So, it’s not looking good for the Texans. 

Johnson returned to the game midway through the fourth quarter. He ran two plays but wasn't targeted by Schaub before the Texans punted.

I guess Johnson is healthy. He outleapt Washington's Reed Doughty for the game-tying 34-yard TD with 2:03 to go in the game.
