Texans RB David Johnson placed on COVID list

Running back David Johnson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Houston Texans on Friday.

Johnson will not travel with the team to Chicago, but Houston expects Duke Johnson — who missed practice Thursday due to illness — to be ready after he was able to participate in Friday’s workout.

David Johnson was listed as out Thursday for “non-injury reasons” and the Texans updated his status Friday afternoon. Head coach Romeo Crennel hinted David Johnson would miss the trip due to “personal reasons.”

Healed from a concussion, David Johnson returned from injured reserve last week to play against the Indianapolis Colts. He leads the team in rushing with 113 carries for 452 yards and four touchdowns.

Duke Johnson has 69 carries for 209 yards and one touchdown this season.

Also, tight end Pharaoh Brown will miss the game after suffering a concussion against the Colts. He has seven receptions for 75 yards in 10 games.
