San Diego Chargers wide receiver Stevie Johnson hasn’t made a huge impact over the last three years and he looks to get his career turned around in 2016. However, it looks like he will have to deal with an injury going into the season.
Sports Illustrated’s Michael Silver reported on Monday that Johnson had torn his meniscus and he was looking to have surgery later this week. There is no timetable for his return or if he will miss any time at all this year.

Stevie Johnson joined the Chargers ahead of the 2015 season, where he played in 10 games and recorded 497 yards and three touchdowns. He recorded over 1,000 yards with the Buffalo Bills from 2010-2012, but hasn’t done that since.
In his eight-year career, Johnson has amassed over 4,700 yards and 34 touchdowns. It looks like he could be on the tail end of his career, but it may be off to a slow start going into the 2016 season.
