Andre Johnson Injury Sidelines Him For Texans vs. Raiders

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will be sidelined against the Oakland Raiders.

Time for fantasy owners everywhere to start freaking out, because their number one receiving option is likely out for the Houston Texans for the near future. John Clayton of ESPN reported on Sportscenter that Johnson is out against the Oakland Raiders, and might be out for a few more weeks. Johnson hurt his hamstring against the Pittsburgh Steelers and had to leave the game, so it's good to see the injury isn't too serious.

Oakland fans do have to be happy that Johnson is out. This will allow the Raiders to more freely gameplan against stopping Arian Foster and force Matt Schaub to beat them through the air without his No. 1 option out there. Jacoby Jones and Owen Daniels are the two likeliest targets remaining for Schaub in the backfield.
