INDIANAPOLIS -- Defensive back Sidney Johnson of the Washington Redskins was knocked out running downfield on a kickoff late in the first quarter of last night's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Johnson, who suffered a concussion, lay on the field for several minutes and wasn't fully conscious when he was taken to Methodist Hospital, but doctors said that when he woke up, there were no abnormal findings.

Johnson remained hospitalized overnight as a precautionary measure, and a CT scan will be performed on him today.
