The Houston Texans got an overtime win over the division rival Tennessee Titans thanks to a strong performance down the stretch by rookie first-round wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and it came at a good time because star wideout Andre Johnson could end up missing some time.

Reports are indicating that Johnson is being evaluated for a touchdown and the team did not make him available to the media immediately after the game. According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL rules prohibit players from speaking to the media if they are under evaluation for the media.

If it is found that Johnson has a concussion, then he will need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he is able to return to the field.

Until he is cleared, Johnson will not be able to return to the field.

As a result, Hopkins will get plenty of work with the first team offense and be able to continue his momentum that he gained at the end of Week 2.
