Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. ohnson typically rests early in the week. He has a great matchup with a shaky Eagles secondary this week.
If there's one subject that has been met with nothing but positive commentary this week, following the Buccaneers' overtime loss to Minnesota, it's the ever-improving play of Mike Evans, the seventh overall pick in this year's draft. By the raw numbers, Evans has been consistent all season catching at least four passes in each game he's played and usually falling somewhere between 50 and 80 yards per week. But everyone from his quarterback to his coordinator to himself believes that Evans is riding an upward trajectory towards potential stardom.
After Evans caught four passes for 78 yards (and had one other big play erased by a holding penalty back at the line), Head Coach Lovie Smith said in his day-after-game press conference that the Bucs' offense needs to get the ball in Evans' hands more often.

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.

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.

Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 5. Johnson is expected to play. The Texans play early on Sunday; owners should monitor his status in the morning.
