“Andre’s fine,” head coach Gary Kubiak said. “He’s doing really good. Expectations are for him to practice tomorrow with his pads on and that’s the last stage before you can before on to playing again. So the expectations are for him to be able to do that. If today’s an indicator, then we should be there tomorrow.”
Kubiak is optimistic that Johnson could be cleared as soon as Thursday and ready to play in Sunday’s game at Baltimore.
Johnson left Sunday’s game against the Titans with just over two minutes remaining. Titans’ safety Bernard Pollard landed a shoulder-to-helmet hit to Johnson, who maintained possession of his catch despite the collision. Pollard tweeted on Wednesday that he will be fined $42,000 for the hit which was not penalized during the game.
