Houston Texans wide receiver will not be suspended by the NFL for his role in a fight with Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan, according to a report by Houston's Fox affliliate.
Johnson is expected to be fined, Mark Berman reports. However, nothing has been confirmed by the Texans or the NFL. The decision not to suspend him would be significant for the Texans, given that they must play Philadelphia on Thursday night. There's no word yet on what punishment Finnegan will receive.
The two were ejected from the game, won by Houston, on Sunday. They'd been exchanging pleasantries throughout the game and their tempers erupted late in the game.
