Andre Johnson Undergoes Successful Ankle Surgery
Johnson, a wide receiver for the Houston Texans, missed the final two games of the regular season after playing through a high-ankle sprain throughout all but one game of the regular season.
Johnson said via Twitter he underwent surgery Wednesday.
"Thanks everyone for your support," Johnson tweeted Wednesday afternoon. "The procedure on my ankle went very well."
Johnson, a five-time Pro Bowl selection who pulled out of this year's game Monday, was one of two Texans players named Sporting News first-team All-Pro Monday.
Running back Arian Foster also was named first-team All-Pro, with the Texans the only team in the NFL with two offensive players named first team. The Sporting News All-Pro team is one of the NFL's most prestigious postseason honors, with 50 NFL coaches and executives helping select the team.
