Texans’ David Johnson (concussion) out for remainder of Jaguars game
The Houston Texans are hoping to get more from David Johnson down the stretch, but he may miss the rest of Sunday’s game. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Johnson is being evaluated for a concussion after making an early exit versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Seeing that he’ll be checked for a concussion, it’s assumed that Johnson is questionable to return for the Texans. If Johnson is unable to return, then it would be the other Johnson, Duke Johnson, who would see an expanded workload in the backfield.
UPDATE: David Johnson is now out for the Texans:

Of course, this past offseason, the Texans acquired Johnson in a questionable trade involving DeAndre Hopkins. Therefore, coming into the season, there were high expectations for Johnson as he was preparing to become the No. 1 running back for Houston.
Through his first seven games with the Texans, Johnson rushed for 392 yards and three touchdowns on 101 attempts. At the same time, he hauled in 16 receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown as a receiving threat. Prior to exiting Sunday’s contest, Johnson carried it two times for 16 yards.
