HOUSTON (AP) - Andre Johnson sometimes has to tell his teammates how lucky they are to be on one of the NFL's best teams.
For years, Johnson languished on terrible Texans teams. Now, the star receiver shares stories of the tough times, a reminder to appreciate this season and keep working for more.
Johnson is the only player currently with Houston (11-1) remaining from its franchise-worst 2-14 season in 2005.
Johnson has 1,114 yards receiving to bounce back from an injury-filled 2011 season where he had a career-low 492 yards.
