Texans WR Andre Johnson 'showing no signs of rust'

He was showing up all over the field, making one incredible catch in the back of the end zone, staying in bounds and holding on to the ball in a red zone drill."
The "time away from the team" mention relates to when Johnson held out of OTAs in hopes of a trade and then missed a lot of practice time this month because of a hamstring injury.
