David Johnson Designated To Return From Injured Reserve

The Houston Texans activated the 21-day practice window for running back David Johnson (concussion) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday. It means that Johnson could technically return for the Week 13 matchup with the Colts, but that would be wishful thinking by his fantasy managers. The 28-year-old has been out since Week 9, and the Texans are just hoping that he can return sometime soon. We'd be surprised if Johnson made it back this weekend, but he should be picked up off the waiver wire if he's available. Duke Johnson will continue to have RB2 upside until David Johnson is fully healthy and cleared from the league's concussion protocol.

David Johnson Going On Injured Reserve

The Houston Texans are placing running back David Johnson (concussion) on Injured Reserve on Saturday, meaning that he'll be out for a minimum of three weeks. It's a tough blow for any fantasy managers that were counting on Johnson to try and get them over the hump and into the fantasy playoffs. Duke Johnson was a popular waiver-wire pickup this week after Johnson left the Week 9 contest with a concussion, and he will step into a featured role in Houston's backfield this weekend against the Browns. Johnson had a season-high 16 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown and also caught all four of his targets for 32 yards in relief of Johnson last week against Jacksonville. Plug Johnson into starting lineups as an RB2 this Sunday.

David Johnson Ruled Out For Week 10

Houston Texans running back David Johnson (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Browns. It's relatively unsurprising, as Johnson is still in the concussion protocol and registered three 'DNPs' on the practice report this week. Fellow halfback Duke Johnson will take the reins to the backfield and likely see close to the career-high 20 touches he saw in relief of his teammate last week. Johnson will be a solid RB2 in Week 10 with slightly more upside in PPR formats thanks to his ability as a receiver out of the backfield.
