Andre Johnson suffers possible concussion in Texans’ win
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.
Andre Johnson wasn’t able to do interviews cause of concussion protocol after hit by Bernard Pollard that knocked him out of game.
