HOUSTON, TX (KTRE) - It was confirmed Tuesday that Houston Texans wide receiver, Andre Johnson, made an appearance to the Texans facility on Monday.
It was mandatory for the rookies and injured players to report on Monday, to learn the team's new offense. What came as a pleasant surprise to the franchise, was when Johnson tagged along to learn the new offense as well.
Johnson has been a ghost throughout the offseason. The seven-time Pro Bowler missed OTA's and a minicamp, in which both were voluntary. However, Johnson also missed the mandatory minicamp in June.
This was not a shock to many, as Johnson publicly announced his frustrations about being a part of another rebuilding year with the Texans. Johnson also publicly questioned whether Houston was the right place for him anymore.
First-year head coach Bill O'Brien has been very patient with Johnson and said he had no concerns that Johnson would not be able to pick up the new offense quickly, despite his absence.
