Andre Johnson Out For Sunday's Game Versus Buccaneers

Gary Kubiak revealed after practice today that Andre Johnson will not play on Sunday in Tampa Bay.

Even if 'Dre is close to what he and the training staff believed is 100%, I believe this is the smart decision. As great as it would be to have him on Sunday, the Texans have to take a season-long look at the situation. With the bye coming next week, 'Dre essentially has an extra two weeks to heal before returning for the stretch run and--dare I say it--postseason.  Giving him that extra time is the right call.
