Andre Johnson could feature in Week 3 despite concussion

You don't make it in the NFL if you can't take a hit and wide receiver Andre Johnson has proven he can do exactly that.

Johnson suffered a concussion when he was knocked from the game against Tennessee Titans in Week 2 having taking a hit from Bernand Pollard.

Anyone who suffers a concussion in the NFL must go through a process known as the protocool but Texans head coach Gary Kubiak revealed Johnson is making great progress.

Speaking to the official Texans website, Kubiak said: "He did have a concussion. He's obviously in the protocol. He's doing great today. He's out. Rode the bike today. Doing great, but he is in the protocol right now."

Amazingly 32-year-old Johnson is already in contention for the Week 3 fixture at the Baltimore Raven according to Kubiak, who said: "Obviously it will be an end of the week decision because he's gotta go through the process.

"But I think after the game, talking to him, seeing where he's at today, obviously he's doing really well. I would expect the progress to go pretty quickly if it goes like it has the last 24 hours."

Were Johnson to suit-up come Sunday it would be a major boost for the Texans who boast a 100% record after the opening two weeks.

Johnson has been with the Texans for a decade and in that time has positioned himself second in NFL history for receiving yards per game, with only Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson ahead of him.
