From bad to worse for Andre Johnson

 Texans receiver Andre Johnson hasn't had much luck lately. 

He was fined $25,000 for getting into a fight last Sunday with Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan. And last night, he aggravated a high ankle sprain in a loss to the Eagles. 

Johnson aggravated the injury on the Texans' second play of the game. Johnson was in such pain that he went into the locker room for an injection to help him get through the rest of the game. He wound up with six catches for 149 yards. 

"I don't know how bad it is. It's numb now," Johnson said after the game, per HoustonTexans.com. When I was playing before I came into [the locker room], I was limping when I came out on the field, and I told them I needed to do something if I was going to continue to play. We came in and numbed it up. When I came back, I looked like a new person. The rest of the game, I felt fine."

Johnson initially suffered the injury in a Week 2 game against the Redskins. He was to have an MRI today to see if there was any additional damage.
