Earlier today, we learned that Andre Johnson would miss the Pro Bowl. No reason was given as to why 'Dre would be missing the NFL's annual All-Star Game.
Until now. Thanks to Mark Berman for finding out why 'Dre will not be in Honolulu:
Andre Johnson will not play in Pro Bowl because of wrist injury that's healing according 2his uncle, Andre Melton. Surgery was not necessary— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) January 17, 2014
Andre Johnson's uncle, Andre Melton, says his nephew played w/hurt wrist 4 final 4 games,essentially playing w/1 hand but didn't tell anyone— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) January 17, 2014
Oh, 'Dre. I swoon anew at your toughness, though the Texans (2-10 at the time) likely would have gladly shut you down with four games remaining if you'd told them you were hurt. Here's to a speedy and full recovery this offseason.
