Texans WR Johnson won’t be suspended

Texans WR Andre Johnson will not be suspended following his brawl with Titans CB Cortland Finnegan, sources told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora. That’s good news for those counting on Johnson during the final weeks of the fantasy football regular season.

Most fantasy enthusiasts will start Johnson on Thursday against the Eagles in a game shown live on NFL Network. But Johnson’s value could face an even bigger spike depending on the health of CB Asante Samuel (knee), who missed the Eagles’ game at Chicago on Sunday. You should start Johnson in either case, but look for an even bigger performance if Samuel can’t go.

Samuel, who was limited in practice on Monday, said that he hopes to be ready for the Texans.
