After a two month absence the Houston Texans will be welcoming back star wide receiver Andre Johnson. Johnson was able to fully participate in each practice this week for the first time since injuring his hamstring. That is the good news for the Texans this week since they already knew they will be without Matt Schaub for the year.
Danieal Manning is returning from an ankle injury and has already been announced the starter by head coach Gary Kubiak. Lawrence Vickers, Garrett Graham and Tim Bulman are game-time decisions on Sunday.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: Defensive end Tim Bulman (calf, questionable), tight end Garrett Graham (hamstring, doubtful) and running back Lawrence Vickers (hamstring, questionable).
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Linebacker Mister Alexander (shoulders, probable), safety Danieal Manning (ankle, probable) and DE Antonio Smith (shoulder, probable).
FULL PARTICIPATION: Corner back Jason Allen (knee, probable), Linebacker Bryan Braman (thigh, probable), Running back James Casey (chest, probable), tight end Owen Daniels (knee, probable), Linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring, probable), Wide receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring, probable), Defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (ankle probable), defensive end Jesse Nading (shoulder, hip, probable), linebacker DeMeco Ryans (shoulder, probable).
