Despite not practicing Thursday, Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) is a game-time decision against the Browns. Houston coach Gary Kubiak remains optimistic that he will have his big receiver back in action after missing the past four games. If Johnson does indeed play this week, he’s a must-start — with a caveat. He’ll most likely line up against Joe Haden, who is already proving to be one of the league’s best young lock-down corners. If, for some reason, Johnson remains out for another week, Kevin Walter will remain Houston’s starter. You, however, should avoid him.
