Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson participated in individual drills during Thursday's practice, though the six- time Pro Bowl selection's status remains uncertain for this weekend's game against Seattle.

Johnson exited last Sunday's 30-9 loss at Baltimore in the third quarter with a badly bruised shin. The 11th-year veteran, had been questionable to play coming into the game after sustaining a concussion in a Week 2 win over Tennessee, was held out of Wednesday's session.

The Texans have termed Johnson as a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks, though he told the team's official site he expects to be active.

"I plan on playing and that's the way I'm approaching it, so we'll see what happens," said Johnson, who stands third in the NFL with 25 catches totaling 258 yards over the season's first three weeks.

Houston's two starting cornerbacks, Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson, both did not practice for a second straight day. Joseph is dealing with a sore toe, while Jackson is battling an illness.

Offensive tackle Duane Brown, meanwhile, put in a second straight limited practice on Thursday. The 2012 Pro Bowl honoree had sat out the Baltimore game due to a sprained toe.

Safety Ed Reed (hip), guard Wade Smith (knee) and tight end Garrett Graham (hip/groin) were also limited on Thursday. Linebackers Tim Dobbins (hamstring) and Darryl Sharpton (hip/foot) did not take the field.
