UPDATE: Texans WR Andre Johnson confirms he will start in Week 4

Update: Andre Johnson @johnson80 confirmed on Friday that he will be "ready to go" on Sunday.


Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson practiced on Friday, and head coach Gary Kubiak must have liked what he saw, because he said he expects Johnson to start versus the Seahawks on Sunday. Johnson has been limited all week by a leg bruise, and Kubiak said earlier this week that Johnson would be a game-time decision. He took a knee to the shin during last week's loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Analysis:

We will know Johnson's official status Sunday morning. Right now, even with a date with a couple of very tough cornerbacks in Richard Sherman @RSherman_25 and Brandon Browner @bbrowner27 looming, Johnson should be in your lineup as at least a WR2. He gets targeted too often and is too dominant of a force to sit when he is actually playing.
