Andre Johnson sat last week and the Texans still won -- thank you very much, Arian Foster. And NFL schedulemakers. And the Oakland Raiders.
But it seems like having to play without both Johnson and Jacoby Jones, who was banged up against Oakland, versus the Giants could be a slightly bigger nightmare -- however, that's a distinct possibility, as according to the Houston Chronicle , both could be "game-time decisions."
"Andre didn't take any steps backward," Kubiak said about Johnson on Monday. "He's feeling a little better today. We'll continue to take him through the same routine we did last week. It will probably be Thursday before he works.
"Jacoby's got a pretty good calf issue. We'll probably know more about him on Wednesday."
The Texans still have Kevin Walter, David Anderson and Owen Daniels, though, so not all is lost. And, no, that trio is not mind-blowingly elite, but considering they're who's left after the top two receiving options are removed, that's a pretty solid set of players.
