Everything seems to be pointing toward Houston Texans quarterback Matt Leinart having a successful debut as the team’s starter in Week 13 at Jacksonville.

Leinart takes over for Matt Schaub, who went on injured reserve this week. He inherits a Texans team that has scored at least 24 points in their last four games — 37, 30, 24 and 41.

He has running back Arian Foster at his disposal along with the return of wide receiver Andre Johnson and tight end Owen Daniels.

Andre Johnson's hamstring surgery is causing a lot of speculation in fantasy football circles. While the Houston Texans star wide receiver  was originally scheduled to only be out "a couple of weeks" but there is some speculation that he could be out longer than the initial prognosis of week 7 or 8.

The Texans traded for veteran wideout Derrick Mason this week from the Jets. The Texans are also going to sign another wide receiver, Juaquan Iglesies to their practice squad.

Non-contact injuries are often the worst ones.

That was the feeling in Houston yesterday when Texans All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson fell untouched to the Reliant Stadium turf. Many speculated that it could be a knee injury – which would have been the scariest scenario – but it appears that Johnson injured his hamstring instead. The MRI today will tell us more, but everyone knows how much Johnson means to the team.
