Browns Vs. Texans: WR Andre Johnson Ruled Out By Gary Kubiak

With the recent news that the best player on the Cleveland Browns offense, Peyton Hillis, re-injured his hamstring and probably won't be available for the game on Sunday against the Houston Texans comes news that may ease the pain a little bit for Browns fans. The Texans' star wide receiver, Andre Johnson, is going to be out on Sunday as well, according to head coach Gary Kubiak:

Kubiak: "Andre (Johnson) will be out. He will not play again this week...Obviously he's not ready to go yet."    

That's a big blow to the Texans, who rely on a strong offense to get things done. The Browns have had their struggles on both sides of the ball, but their pass defense has consistently been above average this season. In fact, the Browns still have one of the very top defenses in regards to yards allowed through the passing game. Houston still has a lot of weapons in the passing game, but as Johnson is potentially the best receiver in the NFL, it's definitely a blow.
