UPDATE: David Johnson returned on the Texans next drive, while Duke Johnson is questionable to return with a leg injury.

The Kansas City Chiefs are thumping the Houston Texans, and now Houston might be dealing with an injury issue. The announcers indicated David Johnson is getting looked at on the sideline, and thought it might be his wrist. The Texans and Texans beat writers have not mentioned anything yet, so we’ll update as new information comes along.

Johnson has eight carries for 51 yards and a touchdown, along with two receptions for 20 yards. Backup Duke Johnson has five carries for 14 yards and has been targeted once in the passing game.

Since then, Duke Johnson has been ruled questionable to return with a leg injury of his own.
