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 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.
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.
