Fantasy Impact:

For the Texans, it looks like Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins all have a great shot to play on Monday night against the Steelers. It's a better matchup for Foster and the running game as the Steelers rank just 20th in allowing fantasy points to RBs, and as a result we have Foster third on our RB list for Week 7. While in the passing game, the Steelers are sixth in allowing fantasy points to WRs. Johnson is ranked 18th this week and Hopkins is 26th.

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Johnson is active. Johnson practice all week, and hasn’t done much all season, but he’s still a target hog and the Texans may fall behind early in this one. The Colts are a bad matchup for receivers, but the Texans may find themselves in garbage time. As for Foster, we’re expecting his usual workload. He may not reach 23 carries like in Week 5, but he was listed as probable, so the hamstring injury isn’t a big concern. Alfred Blue may see a few extra touches on a short week.

Andre Johnson 'fine' after feeling 'little pop' in ankle

Andre Johnson says he is "fine" after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

"I just think I was more scared than anything because I felt a little pop," Johnson said after the game. "I didn't know what it was, so I went and got it checked and they let me come back in."

The All-Pro receiver headed to the locker room for further examination after getting his ankle examined on the trainers' table behind the Texans bench.
