HOUSTON — Houston receiver Andre Johnson expects to play on Sunday against the Ravens after missing last week's game because of a concussion.

Johnson says he finished the league's concussion protocol and has been cleared to return. He was injured after being hit in the head by Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith on Dec. 7.

Johnson thinks he may have lost consciousness for a few seconds after the hit, but says that the helmet-to-helmet blow didn't scare him.

He says: "I think it was more scary for other people than it was for me. I talked about it like nothing happened. Everybody else who saw it said it was a scary moment for them. I watched the play. Even after it happened, I didn't feel nervous or anything."
