HOUSTON – FOX 26 Sports has learned Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson will be fined for his actions Sunday involving Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan, but Johnson will not be suspended.
It is not known what further punishment will be handed down to Finnegan.
Huge news for the Texans because that means their All-Pro receiver will be able to play when Houston takes on the Eagles Thursday night in Philadelphia.
Any further disciplinary action for Johnson and Finnegan will stem from their altercation in the fourth quarter of the Texans 20-0 victory at Reliant Stadium.
Both players were ejected from the game.
Finnegan initiated the fight when he hit Johnson in the facemask seconds after the ball was snapped. Johnson retaliated and both players ripped each other’s helmets off.
Johnson would land several punches before the referees intervened.
Multiple sources told FOX 26 Sports prior to the fight Finnegan looked at the Texans sidelines and said, “watch this.”
