Johnson, who will miss a fourth straight week, has resumed running but isn't practicing yet. The original timeline had the former third-round draft pick from Wake Forest slated to miss between four and six weeks. That Seattle game will be the sixth week.
Johnson (knee) is unlikely to return to practice this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Johnson has essentially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns and it would be his fourth straight game as an inactive. The 25-year-old is nearing the front end of the original four- to six-week recovery timetable, and sitting out again Sunday would provide an additional week of rest as the Texans' bye follows in Week 7.
Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Johnson hasn't even returned to practice after spraining his knee in Week 2, so it's no surprise he's not playing Sunday. In his extended absence, Marcus Burley and Johnthan Banks should continue to take on expanded roles.
Johnson reportedly is progressing well in his recovery, but likely will miss at least one more game with the original four- to six-week timetable still believed to be accurate. Johnthan Banks filled in as nickel corner against the Titans on Sunday, but Marcus Burley (knee) could reclaim that role if he's able to practice this week.

The timetable of four to six weeks for Johnson's return remains the same at this point. There has been few updates since the recovery timetable was revealed, so it's difficult to pinpoint how the recovery is going thus far.
