Texans CB Lonnie Johnson Jr. Held Out of Practice After Being Booted the Day Before

Texans rookie cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr. is being held out of practice after he delivered some big hits that infuriated the Packers and got him booted out of practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Johnson celebrated a hit on tight end Jace Sternberger by flexing his muscles, leading to a dustup.

Johnson posted a photo on Instagram of the flex. Johnson was told to head to the showers by coach Bill O’Brien.

Not having Johnson practice could diffuse a potentially hostile environment as several Packers players have made references to potential consequences for the incident.

Jimmy Graham said that Johnson’s actions were ridiculous. Davante Adams called him a coward. And Billy Turner predicted there would be fights Tuesday.
