HOUSTON - Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson and defensive end Mario Williams will be game-time decisions for Sunday's matchup with the New York Giants.

Johnson practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday as he continues to recover from a right ankle sprain. He did not practice at all last week and was inactive for the Texans' 31-24 win over Oakland on Sunday.

Head coach Gary Kubiak said in regards to Johnson's injury in comparison to where he was at the same time last week, "he's obviously much further along. We feel much better from what we've seen from him this week. As long as there are no setbacks, I feel a lot better than I did last week."

In three games this season, Johnson has caught 19 passes for 255 yards and one touchdown.

Williams suffered a sore groin Thursday and was limited on Friday in practice. He underwent an MRI that came back negative and Kubiak said he is hopeful that there will be no setbacks so that he can take the field Sunday.

Tight end Owen Daniels and free safety Eugene Wilson, both bothered by hamstring injuries, and strong safety Bernard Pollard (neck) were limited in practice all week and are probable for Sunday's game, while running back Derrick Ward (ribs) was also limited all week and is listed as questionable for the contest.
