Stevie Johnson was injured in practice a few weeks ago and underwent surgery to fix his torn meniscus. The announcement was made that he would be missing the season last week, and today the team made that official. However, he isn’t the only veteran going on the IR today. #Chargers placed WR Stevie Johnson and DT Sean Lissemore on IR.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) August 15, 2016 Sean Lissemore will be joining Stevie on the IR after missing multiple practices last week, and the game on Saturday. This is annoying. Lissemore hadn’t been playing any snaps with the ones, in fact he had...

Following surgery to repair his meniscus yesterday, #Chargers WR Stevie Johnson has learned he's out for the season, source said. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 11, 2016 There was some hope that Johnson would be able to make it back at some point this season, but it looks like they will need to make due without his services.

Kyle Posey breaks down the training camp competition at wide receiver. With the recent injury to Stevie Johnson, the Chargers suddenly have a spot for their number 3 receiver available. The Johnson news is troublesome, but it's not the end of the world. He didn't play nearly as well as I anticipated last year. Once Keenan Allen went out with an injury, Johnson showed he just doesn't have what it takes to be "the guy" anymore. So that leaves the team with a couple of different options at receiver. Let's talk through them. The Stud It's clear who the number 1 receiver on the team is. This...

With Stevie Johnson's apparent knee injury, the San Diego Chargers are shopping around for his replacement. Yesterday we went over different receivers the Chargers might sign. None of them were James Jones. #Chargers are hosting veteran WR James Jones on a visit today, source said. Given WR Stevie Johnson's knee injury, Jones is a strong option. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 2, 2016 In the wake of his injury you can't really compare Stevie Johnson to James Jones and their production last year, just because Aaron Rodgers and Jones have otherworldly chemistry; but I'm going to try...

Chargers wide receiver Stevie Johnson tore his meniscus at practice Sunday and will undergo surgery “soon” according to Michael Silver of NFL Network.

If the San Diego Chargers need to sign a free agent WR to replace Stevie Johnson, who is having knee surgery, these are the guys they should target. Stevie Johnson has a bad knee. At least, Stevie Johnson has an injured knee. A torn meniscus, if you want to be specific, and he’s set to have surgery on it and miss anywhere from 2 weeks to 26 weeks depending on who is speculating about it and the severity of the injury. I’m not saying the San Diego Chargers need to necessarily sign a free agent WR to replace Stevie Johnson as the slot WR, but I thought I’d plan ahead and look at what is...
