Andre Johnson did have surgery, recovery time still three weeks

The Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Texans beat writer Stephanie Stradley: "I received information from a source I trust that contrary to my previous post, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson did have a surgical procedure on the distal tendon of his hamstring and not Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. Surgery done by someone very familiar with doing it. This is not confirmed with anyone from the Texans nor his agent as they do not publicly wish to talk about it. I was told that the procedure went well, and like what others have been hearing, that the anticipated recovery time is three weeks."

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a tremendous opportunity for Jacoby Jones, but Jones has disappointed in similar situations in the past. He's worth a pickup, and perhaps a start this week, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be a difference-maker while Johnson is out.
