Andre Johnson: 'Nothing to panic about'

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The Texans best player, receiver Andre Johnson, did not take part in the team's first organized team activity (OTAs) on Monday because he is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery.

What matters most is that Johnson said he will be ready for training camp.

"Nothing to panic about," Johnson said. "I had it two weeks ago. It was from a play that happened in the game against Jacksonville (in November).

"I hyperextended my (left) knee. It (was swollen). Got the swelling to calm down. I came back during offseason workouts, it (became swollen) again. We felt like the best thing to do was get it scoped, get it fixed."

Johnson said missing the teams' organized training activities is no big deal.

"I'm two weeks out from having a knee scope," Johnson said. "I wasn't in any pain before I had it. It just kept holding fluid on it. I'm not in any pain now. My knee feels better, the swelling has pretty much gone down. Just keep doing rehab and (I'll) be ready for training camp.

 "This is my tenth season. I've been through OTAs several times. I don't really feel like I'm missing anything right now."
