Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson feels good enough to return in two weeks.
But that might not be possible because several things have to happen before he's cleared to play for the first time since suffering a torn hamstring in Sunday's 17-10 victory over Pittsburgh.
"I have to wait a few days to get the stitches out, and once I do, I can go all out and see where I am," Johnson, 30, said after Friday's practice. "If I had to pick a date, I'd give it a couple of weeks. That's just my gut feeling. I think I'm a fast healer."
Johnson (6-3, 226 pounds) will miss Sunday's game against Oakland and the next one at Baltimore. He might have to sit out the Oct. 23 game at Tennessee and return against Jacksonville on Oct. 30.
"Out of any procedure I've ever had, this is probably the best I've felt," he said. "I'm pretty confident about this one. I'm pretty pumped; just can't wait to get these stitches out so I can get to rolling."
