Texans WR Johnson out vs. Bengals

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will miss another game because of hamstring problems.

Head coach Gary Kubiak said after practice Friday that Johnson won't play in Sunday's contest against the Bengals, the seventh game he's missed this season.

A right hamstring problem forced Johnson to miss Weeks 5-10 on the schedule. He returned for the last two Texans games, but suffered a left hamstring injury in last Sunday's win against Atlanta.

Kubiak said Monday that it was a mild injury and deemed Johnson day-to-day, but the receiver has missed practice because of the ailment.

"He's made progress this week. Made a decision this morning just to leave him in [the pool] and continue to work him, so we'll go back in the next week and see where we're at," Kubiak said Friday.

Additionally, Kubiak said linebacker Brian Cushing (ribs/knee) will play against Cincinnati. Receiver Kevin Walter and fullback Lawrence Vickers (hamstring) are questionable.
