Johnson gets evaluated for a concussion

Andre Johnson is now 12th on the NFL career receiving yards list.

But moments after achieving the milestone, the Pro Bowler left the game to be evaluated for a concussion.

Facing the Jaguars, the 12-year veteran started the day in 13th place with 13,381 yards, but caught a 19-yard pass on the first play of the second quarter to move past Torry Holt, who compiled 13,381 yards from 1999 to 2009.

The Texans got ready for their Week 14 matchup in Jacksonville at EverBank Field.

Four plays later, though, Johnson was hit outside linebacker Telvin Smith on an incomplete pass near the goal line. Smith was penalized on the play, and Johnson would walk off the field to the bench. After the Texans scored a touchdown two plays later, Johnson and a team doctor walked across the field to the tunnel. He was evaluated for a concussion.

Johnson had four catches for 17 yards against Jacksonville.

It was also the 130th straight game in which Johnson caught a pass.
