Stevie Johnson being released

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the San Diego Chargers are releasing wide receiver Stevie Johnson on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson missed the entire 2016 season due to a torn meniscus. The nine-year veteran has shown durability issues since 2013 as he's missed 29 games in that span, and 46 total in his career. With a light free agent wide receiver class this offseason, Johnson should still be able to find work for the 2017 season if his health remains intact.

Steve Johnson to miss the entire 2016 season

San Diego Chargers WR Steve Johnson (knee) will miss the entire 2016 regular season following Thursday's knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus suffered during the early stages of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Johnson will miss the 2016 regular season after tearing his meniscus in the early days of training camp. The Chargers signed James Jones last week anticipating the worst case scenario for Johnson. Jones will likely compete with Dontrelle Inman for the No. 3 wide receiver spot on the depth chart.

Steve Johnson undergoes knee surgery

Steve Johnson underwent what was termed successful knee surgery on Tuesday. There is currently no timetable for his return. He suffered a torn meniscus in training camp.

Fantasy Impact

It's expected that Johnson will not be back this season, but this has yet to be officially determined. His absence will create opportunity elsewhere, including starters Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin.

Stevie Johnson will undergo surgery for torn meniscus

According to Michael Silver, WR Stevie Johnson of the San Diego Chargers has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will undergo surgery. His timetable is unknown at this time but could range anywhere between 2-6 months depending on the severity of the tear.

Fantasy Impact

If Johnson does in fact miss extended time it could afford more targets to starting wideouts Travis Benjamin and Keenan Allen. It also opens up the potential for Dontrelle Inman, Javontee Herndon, or Tyrell Williams to earn an increased role. This situation will be one to monitor once a timeline is given post-surgery.

Steve Johnson carried off field after injury

San Diego WR Steve Johnson was carried off the field today after being injured in a passing drill. Johnson didn't apply any pressure to his right leg as he was carried off, and was looked at by trainers for several minutes before being carted off. The MRI results are pending. Johnson worked with the first team during team workouts this spring and both days of camp.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson is a part of a group of very talented Chargers WR's. This is not a good start for a group that was devastated by injuries last season.
