UPDATE (5:17 p.m. ET): After the game, Johnson said the pain he felt when he hurt his hamstring was nowhere near as bad as his previous hamstring injury. Which, I suppose, is a positive development.

He'll undergo an MRI on Monday, but Johnson told reporters he thinks he simply tweaked his hamstring.

----------

Andre Johnson missed seven games this season with a bad right hamstring, and he returned just in time to help welcome quarterback T.J. Yates to the NFL.

But after making four catches for 97 yards through the first three quarter of today’s Falcons game, Johnson has left the game after another non-contact injury in which he appeared to hurt his other hamstring.

While he ran a deep post route, Johnson pulled up lame at midfield, and he flopped to the ground. He got up and hopped off the field on one leg. Once he returned to the sideline, he almost immediately limped to the locker room.

Officially, Johnson is questionable to return, but it's hard to imagine the Texans sending him back to the field today.

If Johnson is out for an extended period of time again, that badly will hurt Houston’s chances to make a deep postseason run. And it’s another unfortunate injury for the Texans -- who lost their starting quarterback in back-to-back weeks and now appears to have lost their No. 1 receiver.

Let me guess. Hes on your crappy fantasy team. He's definitely injury prone but he's been the best receiver in the league over the past 6 years. If he played for a more consistent team or if he talked as much as TO or Randy Moss then I guess you might know that.

"another non-contact injury"   What's the record for "non-contact injury" in a single season?  Pretty sure Andre has set the mark.

If they win their division, which they are leading, they can be no worse then a 4th seed.

How are the Falcons one of the best teams in the NFC?
Easy. Going into the game they had won five of their past six, the only loss being against New Orleans in a game they should have won. As of this morning, they were the fifth seed in the conference. I didn't claim they were a Super Bowl caliber team, but I think it's reasonable to argue that they are in, or on the cusp of, the top quartile.
