Houston star receiver Andre Johnson will play against Tennessee on Sunday after missing the last three games because of a strained left hamstring.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Johnson will be on a play count, but wasn't sure how many. Johnson has played only six games this season after missing six straight with a right hamstring injury that required surgery.

The Titans are one of the teams that, with a victory, can eliminate the Jets.

Brady, Big Ben probable

Tom Brady, with an injury to his left, non-throwing shoulder, is listed as "probable" on the New England Patriots injury report for the regular-season finale against the Buffalo Bills . . . Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Troy Polamalu each attended a full practice Friday and are listed as probable for Sunday in Cleveland. Roethlisberger practiced all week after missing last Saturday's 27-0 win over the Rams because of an ankle sprain.
