HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson has left morning practice with a dislocated left index finger.

Johnson was running a slant route in an individual drill Tuesday and leaped to catch a pass, with rookie cornerback Roc Carmichael defending. Johnson couldn’t make the catch and came down shaking his left hand. He took off his glove and walked to the sideline, where a trainer examined him.

General manager Rick Smith walked over to Johnson before the five-time Pro Bowl selection left the field on a cart.

Coach Gary Kubiak did not know the severity of Johnson’s injury after the morning practice. But he was hopeful that Johnson would be ready for the afternoon workout.
