Default Andre Johnson Fined Not Suspended per myfoxhouston.com

http://www.myfoxhouston.com/dpp/spor...t-be-suspended

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."

Well there you go.

Had AJ done this to a respected NFL player, he would have been suspended. But since it was Cortland Finnegan, its all cool.

I wonder how many thank you texts AJ has received from other receivers in the league.

Default Re: Andre Johnson Fined Not Suspended per myfoxhouston.com

JM made a good point this morning. He didn't think the NFL would suspend AJ because of how it would affect their game on Thursday night. They want the Texans player out there since it is an NFL Network game.

I think the other points you guys have mentioned played a role also.

Default Re: Andre Johnson Fined Not Suspended per myfoxhouston.com

Please let this be true
I thought the loss of control may have warranted a suspension. I love what AJ did, but that was a world class beatdown but the NFL is trying to take this stuff out of the game.

If AJ eludes suspension, it's because of who he is and his huge amount of goodwill he has warned as being an exemplary professional. And I think he deseves but he might be a victim of circumstance

Hopefully the NFL will want this story to go away and just levy a heavy fine

Berman reporting this as well.

EDIT: Bah. I saw "Berman" on a tweet and thought it was CHRIS Berman. It's still all the same source: Mark Berman from Fox 26.

Ya, and the longer it takes for other sources to come out with the same news, the more I doubt if this source is correct.
