The Houston Texans received some good news on Monday. FOX 26 in Houston reports WR Andre Johnson will not be suspended for his role in a fight with Tennessee Titans CB Cortland Finnegan on Sunday. The report states Johnson will be fined but the news of no suspension is what will have the Texans happy.
Sitting at 5-6 and one game out of the AFC South lead, the Texans couldn't afford to lose their best offensive player for any stretch of time.
It's not yet known if Finnegan will be disciplined for his role in the fight. According to an earlier FOX 26 report, Finnegan said "watch this" to the Texans sideline before starting the fight with Johnson. The Titans CB has the reputation of a dirty player in the league and has been fined repeatedly.
Johnson's reputation is much different and he quickly apologized after the game. However, last year he was fined $7,500 for taking Finnegan to the ground by the facemask in a scuffle.
The league will likely soon announce the punishment for Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan.
