Early in the second quarter of the Thursday night game, the Texans have fallen behind the Eagles 14-3, and right now, it doesn’t look like Houston’s defense has a prayer of stopping Michael Vick, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, et al.
So, it’s awfully disconcerting to see Houston WR Andre Johnson walk to the locker room, like he just did (to be fair, it’d be disconcerting regardless of which opponent the Texans were playing).
Johnson has been battling ankle injuries all season, so that could be part of the problem. But if he’s not in there for Houston’s offense, it seems highly likely this game already is over.
UPDATE (9:28 p.m.): With about 7 minutes to play, Johnson is back in the game, and on his first play, he caught a 42-yard pass from Matt Schaub. Two plays later, the Texans scored to cut the Eagles lead to 17-10.
