Chargers WR Stevie Johnson expected to miss season

Stevie Johnson

The San Diego Chargers are expected to be without WR Stevie Johnson for the entire 2016 NFL regular season after he tore his meniscus on the second day of Training Camp.

The team seemed to show that they knew this news was coming when they signed veteran WR James Jones a few days after Stevie Johnson left the field with his knee injury.

Johnson is in the second year of a three-year contract worth $10.5 million, so Chargers fans can expect to see #11 back on the field at Training Camp next year.

Because the team does not have to declare players on the Injured Reserve just yet, there’s no guarantee that Johnson will miss the entire season. At this point, it is simply expected.

In 2015, in his first year with the San Diego Chargers, Johnson played in 10 games and finished the season with 45 catches for 497 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns.
