Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) upped his level of activity during Tuesday's joint practice with the Broncos, seeing some reps with the first-string offense, reports the Houston Chronicle. Coach Bill O'Brien called that "a good sign for our football team."
Lions defensive back DeJon Gomesleft Friday's preseason game against Oakland with a neck injury, according to the team's official website. Gomes forced a fumble on a huge hit late in the fourth quarter, which caused the injury. He was taken back to the locker room and ruled out for the remainder of the game.
