Houston Texans Injuries: Andre Johnson Will Play Sunday Against Ravens

New, comments

Andre Johnson is not a mortal and not even a concussion can keep him off the field on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

"Help, I've fallen!  But I'll still play on Sunday."

After a bone-rattling, Avada Kedavra type hit from Bernard Pollard last Sunday, Andre Johnson is expected to play against the Ravens on Sunday. Adam Schefter and Tania Ganguli tweet:

Pollard's hit knocked Johnson out of the game and forced him to head to the locker room to answer questions like, "What day is it?", "When is your birthday?", and "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?". Then DeAndre Hopkins took over and gobbled up the smaller Titans' corners in a 30-24 comeback win. After last week's breakout performance by Hopkins and a view into the future, I can't wait to see what the Dre I and Dre II do against the Ravens' secondary.

However, we still don't know if Duane Brown will play in Baltimore after injuring his right big toe in overtime on Sunday. In other news, Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil are currently smashing a #8 Schaub pinata in delight and Ryan Harris is getting ready to have his Shiloh Keo moment.
