Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will be fined but not suspended for the punches he threw at Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan Sunday, Mark Berman of FOX 26 Sports reports.
Berman does not say how large the fine will be or whether Finnegan will garner the same punishment. The NFL might view Finnegan as the instigator given that he reportedly warned the Texans bench of his actions seconds beforehand. The good news for the Texans is that they will have their most explosive offensive weapon on the field at Philadelphia Thursday night.
The fight between Johnson and Finnegan was part of an ugly NFL weekend that overshadowed the close finishes and individual heroics in Week 12.
