The Texans got wide receiver Andre Johnson back at practice on Thursday, but they’re no closer to determining his status for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.
Johnson was a limited participant in practice, sticking to just individual drills and sitting out team work a day after he wasn’t able to practice at all. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Kubiak said that the Texans are still considering Johnson a game-time decision for Sunday.
That’s also the status of left tackle Duane Brown, who did a little bit of team work on Thursday. Kubiak said that if Brown was in the lineup, he’d be starting and playing full time. Brown thinks that he’ll be in the lineup.
“It’s recovering pretty rapidly right now,” Brown said, via McClain’s colleague Dale Robertson. “I think a little bit ahead of schedule than we previously though. I’m not too worried about it. I think I’ll be fine.”
Cornerbacks Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph were out of practice on Thursday. Kubiak said he expects them both to practice on Friday, which should have them on track to be out there against Russell Wilson and company.
