Texans receiver Andre Johnson (shin) is listed as questionable to face the 49ers on Sunday. He missed Wednesday's practice and was just limited in Thursday and Friday sessions.
Johnson went down a couple weeks ago and came back strong in Week 4. He had 110 yards with nine receptions on 12 targets in a loss to the Seahawks. That's all the more impressive going up against the best secondary in football.
Coach Gary Kubiak said that Johnson is fine and his elite wideout will suit up as long as he doesn't have a setback.
Fantasy impact: AJ is ready to go. The 49ers might shut down the running game, so that's all the more reason to use Johnson in the passing game. Even though he's questionable and plays on Sunday Night Football, fantasy owners shouldn't worry about locking him into lineups.
