HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Texans second-year corner back Kevin Johnson was noticeably limping after the Texans’ 26-23 comeback victory over the Colts on Sunday Night Football. Multiple media outlets reported that Johnson had broken his foot and would likely miss the season.
Head Coach Bill O’Brien didn’t elaborate on Johnson’s injury in his Monday press conference saying only that his was the only injury that would not be “day-to-day”. O’Brien shared some more details with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday saying that Johnson, as expected, is likely done for the year.
The Texans have yet to make a roster move, so they are likely trying to figure out if Johnson could still be brought back later in the season. The team already called up Robert Nelson from the practice squad after injuries to safety Quintin Demps and Kareem Jackson. Jackson is expected back for Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.
