2014 Houston Texans Training Camp: Arian Foster, Andre Johnson Both Sidelined With Hamstring Injuries

New, comments

Training camp is one of the most dangerous parts of the year when it comes to injuries. The Texans have already taken multiple hits to their depth, but now the injury bug is going after prominent starters.

Add All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson’s hamstring to the list of soft tissue injuries to worry about as the Texans settle in to the dog days of training camp. Johnson reportedly tweaked his hammy while making a spectacular catch during a closed practice earlier today.

Just like Johnson, Arian Foster’s hamstring injury is being downplayed as a minor issue.

Do not expect much in the way of injury information from the tight-lipped Bill O’Brien regime. We may never know just how serious (or not serious) Foster’s and Johnson’s injuries are until the start of preseason. If the team gets to the Week Three "dress rehearsal" game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos with their two best offensive weapons still sidelined, that is when it will be time to start the mass panic. Until then, enjoy this video that the Mothership put out showcasing today's wide receiver vs. defensive back battles during one-on-one drills.
