Gary Kubiak says Andre Johnson is 'getting closer'

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said receiver Andre Johnson worked out with the team today but that his status is still "day-to-day" for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay.

Johnson has missed the last five games while recovering from surgery on his hamstring. He said last week he'd suffered a setback. Kubiak said today that Johnson is back on track.

"He worked out today, and it went well," Kubiak said, "but does that mean he'll make it on the practice field Wednesday? I don't know. He went through a tough few days, but he's getting closer."

Kubiak said when Johnson tells him he's 100 percent and ready to play, he'll be back in the lineup, no matter when it is. There's a chance Johnson won't play against the Buccaneers, which would give him the bye week before returning Nov. 27 at Jacksonville.
