Andre Johnson gets clean bill of health

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 25, 2011 – 10:51 am

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson played through most of the 2010 season with a high-ankle sprain in his right foot. That injury is now officially a thing of the past.

Johnson told the Miami Hurricane, the campus newspaper at his former school, that he recently received medical clearance after having arthroscopic surgery on Jan. 12.

“I started (training) a little later this year because of a little ankle surgery that I had,” Johnson said. “That’s pretty much it, but (the lockout) hasn’t changed anything as far as me training. I just got cleared by the doctor, but that’s the only thing that has held me back a little bit.”

Johnson was injured last season in Week 2 at Washington. He wound up missing three games but still finished sixth in the league with 86 catches and 1,216 yards. But the five-time Pro Bowler isn’t resting on his laurels as he approaches his ninth NFL season.

“Every year I just try to come in and work harder than I worked the year before,” he said. “I come back here and do the same things I’ve done to get me to the point where I made it into the NFL. That’s why I come back here, that’s why I bust my butt every day that I’m in here so that I can stay on top of my game. I’m not getting any younger, and there are a lot of talented guys coming in every year. You have to compete at a high level every year, so I just try to maintain what I’ve been doing.”

    Best receiever in the game for many reasons. Not only is he a future hall of famer but his work ethic is 2nd to none. Thank you Dre for showing the kids that it is possible to be the best at what you do and remain humble about it. THAT is what makes him great!
