Referee Walt Coleman called the personal foul on David Anderson, but it was meant for Andre Johnson.

Johnson was central in the sideline skirmish in the Texans’ 34-31 win Sunday in Nashville. Tennessee defensive tackle Jason Jones was ejected from the game and found out Wednesday he’d been fined $5,000.

Wednesday, Johnson had a funny exchange with Houston media about the events:

On Titans head coach Jeff Fisher saying he started the fight by pulling Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan down out of bounds: “If that’s how Coach Fisher feels, you know -- hey, he watches the film. He knows what goes on out there during those games. That’s all I have to say about that.”

On Anderson taking the penalty for him on Sunday: “That was funny. We teased him about that on the plane ride back home. A lot of tempers flare when we play against those guys so there is a lot of things that go on out there on the field, but I’m not worried about it.”

On if Titans' Finnegan’s taunts make him play better: “I wouldn’t say it makes me play better. I think it just brings something out of me that people don’t normally see. Just some things happen, things I don’t normally do, like the fight situation.”

On if he is worried about being fined for the fight: “No. Not really.”

On if he isn’t worried because it was all Anderson: “Hey, the penalty was on David, not me. I didn’t have anything to do with it.”
