Texans' Johnson plans to play

The Sports NetworkOctober 10, 2013 

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson told reporters Friday that he expects to take part in this weekend's game against the St. Louis Rams.

The Texans have listed Johnson as questionable for Sunday's contest. The six- time Pro Bowl selection has been battling a shin bruise he initially sustained in a loss at Baltimore on Sept. 22, though he has yet to miss a game due to the injury and currently leads the AFC with 37 receptions.

"I'm doing good," said Johnson, who was a limited participant in Friday's practice. "I went through practice, I felt well. I'm feeling fine."

Fellow wideout Keshawn Martin, who hurt his shoulder in last week's 34-3 loss at San Francisco, is also considered questionable for Sunday's matchup. Backup linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring) is the only Texans' player ruled out for the game.

Right guard Brandon Brooks has been termed probable to face the Rams after sitting out the San Francisco game with a sprained toe.

Running backs Arian Foster (thumb/chest) and Ben Tate (elbow), defensive ends J.J. Watt (nose) and Antonio Smith (quadriceps), linebacker Brian Cushing (knee), safety Ed Reed (knee), offensive tackle Duane Brown (toe) and center Chris Myers (biceps) are among those also declared probable for Sunday's tilt.
