Texans Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson will not be suspended for his part in Sunday’s fight with Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan, a Houston television station reported Monday.
However, Johnson will be fined by the NFL, according to FOX 26 in Houston.

Had Johnson been suspended for Thursday’s game against the host Philadelphia Eagles, the Texans would have been forced to push up the role of fourth-year wide receiver Jacoby Jones , who dropped to No. 4 on the depth chart. The Titans' No. 3 receiver, David Anderson, did not play against Tennessee because of a hamstring injury.
Johnson is good to plug in your lineup this week, as he is every week. He could see a lot of Asante Samuel this Thursday night, on the NFL Network ironically. Samuel may not even be 100% after missing Sunday's game against the Bears.
