The Texans got the good news they were expecting.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, wide receiver Andre Johnson was back on the practice field Thursday, clearing the way for him to play this week against the Ravens.

Johnson missed yesterday after suffering a concussion last week on a hard hit by Titans safety Bernard Pollard.

The Texans still have to play wait-and-see with left tackle Duane Brown (turf toe), who appears destined to be a game-time decision.
