A 57 yard field goal by Kris Brown as time expired lifted the Houston Texans to a 22-19 win over the floundering Fins Sunday, and a franchise-best 3-2 mark for Houston. After the game, however, Texans DT Travis Johnson was hardly in a celebratory mood after being upended by Miami QB’s Travis Green’s low block —- Green was injured in the collision and left Reliant Stadium on a stretcher. From the Miami Herald’s Jeff Darlington.
‘At 12:01, I had a lot of respect for Trent Green,” Johnson said. “At 12:20, I said [expletive] Trent Green. To hit my knee like that, that’s uncalled for. He’s like the scarecrow — he wants to get courage while I’m not looking and hit me in my knee instead of trying to hit me in my head. God don’t like ugly — you know what I mean?
“My knee ain’t never hurt like it hurt today. When I was up in the air, looking at the ceiling, I was wondering what was going to happen if I came down on my head. It was a dirty play. Football’s not like that. If you want to hit me, hit me in my shoulders, not my knees. That just showed what type of man he is.”
Green was not available for comment because of medical reasons, but his teammates were outspoken about their disdain for Johnson’s taunting after the play.
”He has to live with what he did. That’s pretty classless,” Dolphins tackle L.J. Shelton said. “I don’t want to elaborate on it, but everybody saw it. Hopefully, he’s a better person and he feels about it. But he has to live it.”
