Chargers WR Stevie Johnson suffered a torn meniscus in Sunday's practice and will undergo surgery soon, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. It's "unclear" whether the injury will end Johnson's season, Silver adds. It certainly sounds like the 30-year-old is looking at an extended absence, though. He's not worth rostering in redraft fantasy leagues. Johnson is mostly a short-range possession receiver for San Diego, so his absence figures to benefit Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead most. Dontrelle Inman, Javontee Herndon and Tyrell Williams will battle to take Johnson's #3 WR spot.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers WR Stevie Johnson will miss the entire season following surgery to repair a torn meniscus. San Diego already signed WR James Jones after Johnson's injury, but we're not much interested in him for fantasy purposes. Johnson's absence should mean more for players such as TEs Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry and RB Danny Woodhead.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson suffered a right knee injury Sunday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Johnson reportedly applied no pressure to the leg as he was carried off the field. We have yet to see an update on the specific injury. The team is likely awaiting further testing to solidify a diagnosis. We'll keep an eye on the situation. A Johnson injury wouldn't significantly alter fantasy outlooks, though it could mean more targets available for rookie TE Hunter Henry and perhaps help RB Danny Woodhead.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Broncos. Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon will serve as San Diego’s top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos.  He put in a full practice on Wednesday but was limited on Thursday and Friday.  At less than 100% in a brutal matchup, Johnson isn't a recommended Week 17 fantasy play.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (groin) is inactive once again vs. the Raiders tonight. His absence leaves more work for players such as Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Jevontee Herndon. None has turned into a strong fantasy option in his absence to this point, though.
