Texans Injury Report, Week 9: Andre Johnson Out Of Thursday Practice, Still A Guess For Browns

Another day, another doubtful forecast for Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson to start on Sunday. Johnson missed practice again because of his surgically repaired hamstring was sore from a Monday workout. Johnson hasn't been on the field since Week Four, and has missed half of the ongoing season. Head coach Gary Kubiak said more of the same to HoustonTexans.com's Nick Scurfield:

Kubiak said he’s "not scared" to play Johnson on Sunday if he doesn’t practice very much. The Texans want to make sure Johnson is fully healed from his Oct. 2 injury before putting him back on the field for a game.

"This is strictly about his health and how he’s feeling," Kubiak said. "Like I said, we got to a point Monday where we pushed really, really hard. Some soreness came about, so we took him off yesterday. (The) thought was to have him back out here today, (but) we made a decision before practice no, it’s kind of cold and that type of stuff, so we’ll resume the process tomorrow and see where we’re at."

In addition to yesterday's injury chart, the Texans added the following names to their limited participation listing: LB Brian Cushing (knee), LB DeMeco Ryans (elbow/hamstring/wrist), WR Kevin Walter (knee).
