Head coach Bill O’Brien talked about the importance of having WR Andre Johnson out on the practice field on Wednesday.

“He is a big part of what we do here,” O’Brien said to HoustonTexans.com. “I’ve said that from the beginning.  He is a guy who has been with this franchise for a very long time. In my opinion he will be a Hall of Fame receiver.  Anytime you have a guy like that, that caliber player like that on the field, it does nothing but help you as a team.  It helps the younger players and it is great to have him back out here.”
