Duke Johnson (hamstring) back at practice for Texans

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Johnson had been sidelined by a hamstring since before being traded to the Texans, so Tuesday was his first time practicing with the offense. The 25-year-old back is expected to primarily work on passing downs, but he could see an expanded role if Lamar Miller underperforms. Johnson had a career-low 102 touches last season with the Cleveland Browns.

numberFire's models expect Johnson to total 681.0 yards from scrimmage and 4.59 touchdowns on 109.1 touches for the Texans in 2019. He's the RB40 in our preseason fantasy rankings.
