UPDATE: Texans WR Andre Johnson is no longer healthy

Right now, Andre Johnson @johnson80 must be asking himself, "What gives?" Apparently everything in his body.
Johnson was forced to leave Sunday's practice early and was taken off on a golf cart due to a right groin muscle injury. Head coach Gary Kubiak said he's "not too concerned" about it and that Johnson was pulled from practice as a precaution. After practice, as he was being taken off the field, Johnson told reporters that he doesn't know how bad the injury is.
"I'm going to get it checked out," he said.
This comes just two days after Johnson declared himself fully healthy, prepared to prove his doubters wrong, and ready to return to his All-Pro form of a few years ago.

Update: Johnson said Sunday afternoon that he has a "minor strain," and that he expects to be out of action for "maybe a week or so."

Fantasy Analysis:

Johnson might miss just a day or three, but you know that's not the story here. Johnson played through a lot of pain for almost all of the 2010 season because of an ankle injury. Then 2011 arrived, and both of his hamstrings gave way. He underwent a knee scope in May and now this. Johnson's talent and upside is just as big as the red flag affixed to his draft stock.

This is a trade full of risk, with Gates' feet, Johnson's legs, and Jackson heading to a new, run-oriented offense. If everyone plays up to their potential, it could turn out fair. But knowing that AJ is ALREADY hurt and not knowing your backup plan at TE, I think you gave up too much. Just comfort yourself with the thought that if Johnson plays a full 16, he could be a top-3 WR. It's possible.
