Andre Johnson has a lung contusion

The chest injury that sent Texans receiver Andre Johnson to the hospital didn’t break any of his ribs.

Instead, it bypassed the bones and went straight to one of the organs they protect.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that Johnson has a lung contusion.

He’s regarded as day-to-day, and Kubiak wouldn’t commit to Johnson being available for the team’s next game.

Hopefully, he’ll be ready to go against Buffalo,” Kubiak said.

In Buffalo, the 4-3 Texans will face the 3-4 Bills, with both teams having legitimate hopes for a wild-card playoff berth.
