Two key pieces, WR Andre Johnson and LB Brian Cushing, should be on the field this week against the San Francisco 49ers in the second game of the preseason. Johnson missed time with a strained groin and has been back on the practice field, but he didn’t participate against the Panthers to open up the preseason. Cushing missed time with an illness and should be ready to go also.

Hopefully adding back a couple of veterans can clean up some of the “ugliness” of that first game.
