Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) is a long shot to play in Week 2, according to a source. He could return in Week 3, though.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans RB Duke Johnson (ankle) sustained a sprained ankle in Week 1's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and is considered week-to-week, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Huddle Up: David Johnson should see an increased workload (and increased fantasy value) if Duke Johnson is sidelined for an extended period of time, especially given how well he performed in the season opener. Buddy Howell could receive additional touches as well but is mainly a contributor on the special teams coverage units and should not be viewed as a viable fantasy option right now. The Texans also have C.J. Prosise and Scottie Phillips available on their practice squad.
