Andre Johnson reinjures ankle in loss to Eagles

PHILADELPHIA -- Texans all-pro WR Andre Johnson showed plenty of fight Thursday night, even if he wasn't throwing haymakers.

In his first game since drawing a $25,000 fine and ejection for brawling with Titans CB Cortland Finnegan last Sunday, Johnson caught six passes for 149 yards in the Texans' 34-24 loss at the Eagles.

However the star receiver couldn't avoid more bad news. He had to endure a pain-killing injection after re-aggravating an ankle injury that's plagued him most of the season.

"Played for his team, played big, played very big in the game," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said of his star player.

The Texans' next game is a Monday night contest vs. the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14, and Johnson expects to play.

"I really do not know how bad it is right now because it is numb after I got a shot in it," he said. "Right now I have an MRI set up for tomorrow for them to look to see how bad it might be.

"But I am not really worried that it is anything bad. I think I just aggravated my old injury, and I will get better."
