Johnson Out Against Carolina With Hamstring Injury

HOUSTON (December 16, 2011) -- Houston star receiver Andre Johnson will miss his second straight game with a strained left hamstring on Sunday when the Texans host Carolina.

Johnson was injured running a route against Atlanta on Dec. 4.
He missed last week's 20-19 win at Cincinnati which clinched
Houston's first AFC South title and playoff berth.

It is the second injury Johnson has dealt with this season after
sitting out six games following surgery to repair an injury to his
other hamstring.

Coach Gary Kubiak says Johnson is getting close to being ready
to play, but that he wasn't quite healthy enough to go this week.

The Texans (10-3) have won seven in a row heading into Sunday's
game.
