"To say that he's a 'no,' I don't see it that way," Kubiak said. "Obviously, he's sorer ... than he was last week at this time or would've taken in some of the practice. He did run some. It's not like he didn't do anything."
Johnson said he plans to play against the Raiders and that the ankle feels no worse than it did last week.
Running back Arian Foster, who was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month on Thursday, had compliments for Johnson -- the only other Texan to win the award.
"I watch the way Andre works and he's compensated for what he does with accolades in everything that he does and rightfully so," Foster said, according to the team's official website. "The man works hard. I just try to emulate that and do what he does."
Also, Kubiak said reserve linebacker Kevin Bentley underwent knee surgery to reduce swelling that appeared following last Sunday's game. Kubiak expects Bentley to return "in a few weeks."
