VIDEO: Andre Johnson Fights Cortland Finnegan, Both Players Ejected

Titans defensive back Cortland Finnegan has earned a reputation as one of the NFL's dirtiest players with a career of cheap shots and fan-infuriating hits. Today, Finnegan may have added to that reputation — by getting grass stains on his jersey while losing a fight to the Texans' Andre Johnson.

Johnson and Finnegan started scrapping during a play late in the Titans' visit to Houston, and Johnson's immediately got the upper hand, ripping off Finnegan's helmet and holding him at arm's length. He proceeds to wrestle Finnegan to the ground and hit him with a couple of punches, including a looping shot to the head while holding Finnegan down.

We've got more angles and better quality video of the fight after the jump.

Both players were ejected from the game for their involvement in the fight, and are likely to receive suspensions from the NFL. Johnson, in particular, could face a lengthy one, for throwing punches at a player without a helmet on.

But it's not likely that most NFL fans will forget that Johnson, one of the NFL's more talented players, did his scrapping with one of the more hated players in the game today. Or that he won.
