UPDATE: Duke Johnson has been ruled out for the rest of the game. David Johnson will continue to carry the load.

UPDATE: David Johnson is back in, but Duke Johnson is still out.

Texans running back Duke Johnson is questionable to return with a leg injury. David Johnson has played well, but also might be dealing with an injury, as Al Michaels mentioned they were looking at his arm on the sidelines. But, we know for sure that Duke is hurting and might not return.

Duke Johnson had five carries for 14 yards and one target with no receptions before leaving. His usage has actually been better than it was in the past.
