Doctors evaluating Texans WR Johnson's hamstring

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday the team is seeking a second opinion on wide receiver Andre Johnson's injured hamstring.

Johnson was injured in the second quarter of the Texans' 17-10 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday when he fell to the ground without being touched after a catch. He walked off the field but did not return to the game.

Kubiak said he did not know whether the hamstring was strained or torn.

"We're still in the evaluation process," Kubiak said, per the Houston Chronicle. "We're going to get a couple of different opinions over the next couple of days. Obviously, it's a big concern going forward. We have to do what's best for Andre. He's going to miss some time. Right now, I don't know if that's three or four days or a few weeks."

If Johnson is held out, Jacoby Jones is expected to take his spot in the starting line-up.

"You don't replace Andre Johnson," Kubiak said. "Others have to pick it up the way they did Sunday. If he's going to miss some time, the other players will really have to stick up."
