HOUSTON (AP) - Texans star receiver Andre Johnson expects to be out a couple of weeks after a minor procedure to repair a right hamstring injury.

Johnson said Friday that he is scheduled to get the stitches from two incisions removed early next week. He says that his doctor told him after they are removed that he can "go for it."

The five-time Pro Bowl selection says he has felt great since Tuesday’s procedure and is encouraged he’ll be back soon because he’s a "fast healer."

Johnson was injured Sunday in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Texans host Oakland on Sunday and then play at Baltimore on Oct. 16.
