Houston receiver Andre Johnson has skipped the first day of the Texans' mandatory mini-camp.

Johnson hasn't participated in any of the team's voluntary offseason workouts and said last month that he wouldn't attend these workouts, either. On Tuesday, he missed the first of three days of practices that are the last workouts before the team begins training camp in late July.

Johnson has said he has not asked for a trade but last month wondered if Houston was "still the place for me."

The 32-year-old Johnson is Houston's longest-tenured player after joining the franchise in its second season.

The Texans were also without No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, who is recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia.
