“I want to apologize to the organization, our owner and my teammates. What happened out there today wasn’t me,” Johnson said. “I just lost my cool. I wish I could take back what happened. I can’t. It’s over and done with now. I’m pretty sure I’ll be disciplined. I’ll have to deal with it.”
The question now becomes whether Johnson will get fined or suspended. He acknowledged a suspension is possible, although the Texans will hope that the video shows Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan instigated the altercation.
“When that time comes, I’ll find out what it is and have to deal with it from there,” Johnson said.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that the league will decide whether to issue a suspension on Monday; Houston plays Thursday night against the Eagles. Finnegan has been fined repeatedly this year and could take a big hit as well.
The Texans didn’t seem overly concerned. Johnson got a game ball, the organization bragged about him trending on Twitter, and owner Bob McNair had this to say about the fight.
“I awarded it to Andre on points.”
