Texans receiver Andre Johnson out with concussion

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson is done for the day because of a concussion.

Johnson left the game early in the second quarter after being hit in the head by Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith. Johnson dropped the ball and lost his helmet on the play. Teammates rushed to his side and motioned for trainers. Johnson sat up a few minutes later and eventually walked off the field under his own power.

He sat on the bench for a few plays before heading to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion.

The Texans later said he was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

He ended the day with four receptions for 17 yards.
