Vikings tight end John Carlson missed Minnesota's game against Tampa Bay on Thursday night because of concussionlike symptoms that appeared to result from Johnson's block during a punt.
Detroit cornerback Alphonso Smith was fined $15,750 on Friday for his horse-collar tackle on Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall in the Lions' loss Monday night. Smith was called for a penalty, which helped put the Bears in field-goal range. Marshall and fellow Bears receiver Earl Bennett were also fined $10,500 by the league for wearing orange cleats, a violation of the NFL's uniform policy.
