Texans CB Kevin Johnson played the final few games with injuries

Houston Texans corner back Kevin Johnson suffered a broken foot and wrist injury late in the season, according to Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson. He’ll likely be out until at least training camp with these injuries.

Johnson, who was the 16th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, played with a Jones’ fracture through the final few weeks of the season. He’s undergoing surgery today on the broken foot.

After his foot heels, he’ll have surgery on that in a few weeks. The foot is the biggest concern, as he needs it to be able to walk.

In addition, Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant missed two months with a similar injury earlier this season. Without Bryant — and also without staring quarterback Tony Romo — the Cowboys season came to an end earlier than expected, as they lost seven straight games in the middle of the season as things began to fall apart.

Johnson can also expect to be out the similar time frame, because if he returns too early from it, he could re-injury it. That would also require an additional surgery, which would cause him to miss additional time.

He was the Texans nickel corner in his rookie campaign in Romeo Crennel’s defense. He played opposite of Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson.

The 23-year-old had 54 tackles and an interception — which he returned for 22-yards. He also had nine pass deflections.
