Texans' Duke Johnson (illness) doesn't practice Wednesday

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson did not practice Wednesday.

What It Means:

Johnson is dealing with an illness, but it's not related to COVID-19, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN. Assuming that's the case, it shouldn't impact his status for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Still, keep a close eye on his practice status over the next few days. David Johnson remains on injured reserve, meaning Buddy Howell and C.J. Prosise are the other options at running back.

Our models project Johnson for 58.0 rushing yards, 23.1 receiving yards, 0.4 touchdowns and 12.0 FanDuel points.
