Andre Johnson likely to be a game time decision against @STLouisRams.
Head coach Gary Kubiak said the veteran wide receiver took part in just a few portions of Wednesday and Thursday's practices.
"He's just very sore from coming off that Baltimore injury," Kubiak said. "He's been pushing through it for us. It's just a tough thing to work through."
Johnson was injured near the end of the first half of the Week 3 loss to the Ravens. He came back in after the intermission, but exited shortly after and was finished for the game. He played in each of the last two contests, but has been limited during the week in practices.
"It's been very frustrating for him," Kubiak said. "We're doing everything we can to get him back to full strength. He did move around a little bit today."
Kubiak said he and the Texans would know "more tomorrow" about Johnson's status for the noon kickoff this Sunday against the Rams.
"He's just really practicing on Fridays," Kubiak said. "I may feel different about that tomorrow after I watch him move around."
unable to place weight on his leg, my original impression when it happened was a bone bruise, and that he would need to be totally kept off of his leg likely for a couple of weeks. Even then, though the Texans dispelled that this was a bone bruise and reported that this was simply a bad soft tissue bruise, it appears to be acting more like a deep bone bruise that occurs in a weight dependent bone (in this case the tibia).
