Houston Texans star wide receiver Andre Johnson is in the process of being evaluated for a possible concussion suffered Sunday in the team’s win over the Tennessee Titans.

Johnson suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter of the Texans’ 30-24 overtime victory against the Titans. He appeared to be injured after Titans safety Bernard Pollard hit him around his head after Johnson made a 21-yard catch to set up a game-tying score.

“He’s being evaluated as we speak,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said during a postgame news conference, according to NFL.com. “… I have no diagnosis yet.”

The Houston Chronicle’s John McClain reported that Johnson was not made available for postgame interviews due to the league’s concussion protocol.

Johnson finished Sunday’s game with eight catches for 76 yards. He had 12 catches for 146 yards last week against the San Diego Chargers.

Wait, Andre Johnson doesn't play for the Patriots...

Pollard had a few hits to the head.  He should have been called for that one on Johnson. And someone on the Texans needs to go for Pollards knees.  Pollards "tough guy" crap is out of touch with the emphasis on protecting the players from head injuries,  He is a punk.

@MattS   Pollard has gotten away with this "headhunting " style if play for a long time.  He was even doing it in the playoffs last tear especially against the Patriots, hopefully the league will catch up with him like they did with James Harrison.
