Andre Johnson left late in the fourth quarter of the Houston Texans' 30-24 overtime win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with a possible concussion. Johnson went to the locker room and didn't return to the game.

"He's being evaluated as we speak," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said during his postgame news conference. "... I have no diagnosis yet."

The Houston Chronicle reported Johnson was unavailable for postgame interviews because of the NFL's concussion protocol.

The injury occurred after Johnson absorbed a hit from Titans safety Bernard Pollard. The play initially was ruled as an incomplete pass but was overturned to a catch after Kubiak tossed his red challenge flag. The reception moved the Texans to the Titans' 2-yard line and set up a late touchdown and two-point conversion to tie the score.

Johnson finished with eight catches for 76 yards.
