Despite being a limited participant in practices this week, Andre Johnson is expected to start on Sunday, head coach Gary Kubiak said.

Johnson is listed as questionable with a shin bruise. He was kneed during the game in Baltimore last week and had to leave early.

Duane Brown (turf toe) is also questionable but the All-Pro left tackle didn't practice on Friday. Brown missed last week with the same injury and didn't even travel to Baltimore. If Brown misses another game, Ryan Harris would make his second straight start.

Starting corners Johnathan Joseph (toe) and Kareem Jackson (illness) were both back at practice on Friday. They're questionable but are expected to play.

Linebacker Darryl Sharpton (hip/foot) is also questionable for Sunday.

For the Seahawks, DT Jordan Hill, S Jeron Johnson and RB Spencer Ware have all been ruled out. OT Breno Giacomini and C Max Unger are both doubtful.
