Former Wildcat Lonnie Johnson is still a rookie in the NFL, but he certainly didn’t look like one during his scoop-and-score touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round.

Johnson went into the end zone standing up after recovering a forced fumble following a blocked punt. His efforts put the Texans up 13-0 over the Chiefs early in the game. Take a look:

Following his touchdown, Johnson got back to work on defense. His tackle of Travis Kelce forced a 3rd down for the Chiefs.

Here’s a snapshot of all of Johnson’s stats from the regular season, via ESPN.

Cats in the NFL… THAT’S going to be on SportsCenter.

      I’m enjoying reminding my card fan friend that Lamar is watching from home now too while Cat Wesley Woodyard moves on. Hopefully Lonnie moves on too.

    I love Lonnie Johnson and wish him the best BUT the KC receivers made him look inadequate last night.
