The Texans have suffered yet another season-ending injury, but the good news is star receiver Andre Johnson suffered just a mild strain to left hamstring and will not be lost for the season.

The prognosis wasn’t nearly as good for punter Brett Hartmann, who suffered a torn ACL during the final minute of Sunday’s 17-10 win over Atlanta and will not return for the season. During Monday’s press conference, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said the team is in the market for a new punter and will be auditioning available punters Tuesday at the practice facility.

But there was a sense of relief for Johnson. The All-Pro receiver was playing in just his second game Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons since missing six straight games after severely injuring his right hamstring.

Johnson went down untouched in the third quarter as he tried to chase down a deep pass from rookie quarterback T.J. Yates.

Kubiak said Johnson will be listed as day-to-day and he would not speculate if he will be available for Sunday’s road game against Cincinnati.
