Cushing is the biggest surprise of the three. The star linebacker has been on the physically unable to perform list for all of training camp as he recovers from his second major knee injury in two years.

Johnson and Foster have been out for most of camp with hamstring injuries.

The Texans and Falcons will have two joint practices before playing a preseason game on Saturday.
