March 5 (UPI) -- The Houston Texans released cornerback Kevin Johnson, the team announced Tuesday. The Texans selected Johnson in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, but the team decided to move on from the defensive back. Houston originally picked up the fifth-year option on Johnson's rookie contract, but opted to cut him instead of paying the $ 9.06 million option in 2019. Johnson suffered two concussions and was out for the season after one game last year. His salary for 2019 is guaranteed only for injury.

Texans claim first win in overtime over Colts

INDIANAPOLIS -- At the end of a wildly entertaining, exhausting overtime test of endurance, Indianapolis Colts first-year head coach Frank Reich wasn't about to settle for a tie. Even when facing fourth-and-4 at his own 43 with just 27 seconds remaining, Reich didn't hesitate. He went for it. And didn't second-guess himself when it backfired. In a game where Andrew Luck set franchise records for passing, his final fateful throw was too low and bounced incomplete. The Houston Texans completed a 24-yard pass to DeAndre Hopkins and spiked the ball to stop the clock, which precipitated Ka'imi Fairbairn kicking a 37-yard field goal with one second remaining in overtime for a stunning 37-34 road victory on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. "We're not playing to tie," Reich said. "We're going for ...
