Update: Rudi healthy

Updated: 2:55 p.m.

Marvin Lewis said running back Rudi Johnson is healthy and he is listed as probable, but Lewis won't make the call on if Johnson will play until game time in Kansas City. Johnson, who dressed for practice Friday morning for the first time since injuring his hamstring 19 days ago in Seattle, went through some early drills.

"He's healthy to play; I'll make the decision," Lewis said after the 95-minute workout in Paul Brown Stadium which Johnson was reported as a full participant.

This could be a lift for a team that hasn't had much on the injury front this week.

Middle linebacker Caleb Miller (back) didn't work Friday, looks to be out along with the other injured backer, and is listed as doubtful. Middle linebacker Ahmad Brooks (groin), who said he wouldn't play play this week, is also listed as doubtful.

Safety Dexter Jackson (illness) had a full practice and is probable. Defensive end Frostee Rucker (hand) did suit up, but was limited and is listed as questionable. Defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene (knee) didn't practice and is questionable.

Johnson, who missed his first game in 64 last week against the Patriots, just missed a 100-yard game in Kansas City last year when he had 96 yards on 28 carries and a touchdown.
