David Johnson, RB (HOU)

Uncertain for Sunday

Johnson (illness/thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Though the questionable tag implies a player has a 50-50 shot at playing come game day, Johnson's inability to practice in any fashion Wednesday through Friday isn't a promising sign that he'll suit up. A final call on Johnson's status will come when the Texans unveil their inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. In Houston's first game without both Mark Ingram (traded to New Orleans) and Phillip Lindsay (waived), Johnson (10 carries, three targets) and Rex Burkhead (12 carries, three targets) had a near-even split of the backfield touches in the team's Week 12 loss to the Jets, though Burkhead outsnapped Johnson by a 35-20 margin. If Johnson can't go Sunday, Burkhead would likely be in store for a larger share of the bye, though Royce Freeman could still be involved in the game plan as a secondary option out of the backfield.
