Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson returned to practice Thursday but his status for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks is still considered a game-time decision, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Johnson has a bruised shin. He did not practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday.
Offensive tackle Duane Brown, who missed Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens with a sprained toe, also returned to practice Thursday but was a limited participant. Brown hopes to play against Seattle.
"It's recovering pretty rapidly right now," Brown said. "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."
Also, cornerbacks Kareem Jackson (illness) and Jonathan Joseph (toe sprain) missed practice but are expected back Friday.
