Texans HC Gary Kubiak on WR Andre Johnson: “We had some opportunities early to make some plays and some things we were trying to do with him; it’s just the ball didn’t end up going there. I’ve got to do a better job of getting him involved. He’s doing a great job, he’s working hard. We moved the heck out of the ball last night. Other guys are making plays because of Andre, I can tell you that, because they’re paying so much attention to him, but still need to get him more involved with what we’re doing, so that’s my responsibility.”

But don’t expect any changes in the lineup. Walter will be starting opposite Andre Johnson.
“Kevin’s one of the most underrated guys we’ve got,” quarterback Matt Schaub said. “He’s always in the right spot, does everything a thousand miles an hour. He does so much for us in the run game.
“In the pass game, if you put it in a spot, he’s going to go make the play. He’s going to make you look good as a quarterback. I’ve got a ton of confidence in him. … It’s just good to see the young guys step up and play a role, because we needed to see what they were going to do.”
Walter has had a very quiet preseason but could be a factor in PPR formats. In 2007 and 2008, he had back-to-back seasons of 60+ catches and 800+ yards, getting 106 and 95 targets, respectively. Since then, he hasn't seen more than 80 targets in any given season.

Texans WR Andre Johnson did not suit up for the team’s preseason opener on Saturday. Houston is playing it safe with Johnson, who injured his groin when training camp first opened. Unless he suffers a setback he should be active next week when the Texans play the 49ers.
Texans WR Andre Johnson back at camp

The team will likely be cautious with Johnson heading into the season, but he appears to be back and ready to go. There's a good chance he could slip a bit in drafts as owners don't want to risk he'll miss a big part of the season. But Johnson could really pay off if you can get him at a bit of a discount. We have Johnson ranked 13th among our WRs, but his ADP of the early third shows him going before that ranking would indicate.

Titans OC Chris Palmer on rookie WR Kendall Wright: "I've been fortunate in my career -- Andre Johnson, as a rookie, had 975 yards. Terry Glenn as a rookie, had 90 catches, so I felt good about those guys, and I feel good about Kendall, and what he can do."
Palmer went on to say that Wright "is going to be a star in this league." He's definitely a player to monitor as Kenny Britt navigates another tumultuous offseason.
