Johnson will miss the 2021 season as he recovers from an ACL tear in his right knee. The non-contact injury occurred during 1-on-1 drills in Friday’s practice. The third-year pro amassed 45 receptions for 483 yards and three touchdowns in his first two seasons with the Vikings. The Vikings signed Dede Westbrook and Chad Beebe to compete for the WR3 position in Minnesota but are likely going to be behind Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Dalvin Cook and Irv Smith in targets this season.
