Stevie Johnson: Cut by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers have released Johnson (knee).

Per NFL.com, the move saves the Chargers $3.5 million. Johnson, who turns 31 in July, did not see any regular season action in 2016, following meniscus surgery in August. Assuming he is able to re-prove the soundness of his knee, Johnson should catch on elsewhere, given his level of experience, good size (6-foot-2, 207 pounds), and past production, notably during his stint with the Bills, which ended in 2013.

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Johnson underwent successful knee surgery Tuesday, but wasn't placed on injured reserve until Thursday, which has now officially ended his 2016 campaign. The 30-year-old receiver has played in eight NFL seasons and will likely have to prove he's still got enough left in the tank following a tough knee injury. The Chargers signed James Jones to fill in for Johnson at wide receiver and help provide depth behind projected starters Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin (undisclosed).

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) will not play this season after undergoing surgery to repair his meniscus.

Johnson suffered the injury in Sunday's practice, and underwent surgery on his knee Tuesday. The procedure was said to have gone well, but unfortunately the veteran learned Wednesday that he will be sidelined for the year. Johnson played 10 games with the Chargers last season tallying up 497 yards and three touchdowns in the process. Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams figure to compete for more time with the first team offense.

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Has procedure on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) underwent knee surgery Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

As is normally reported in such cases, the procedure was said to have gone well, though at this point there is still no timetable for the wideout's potential return to action. Even if Johnson's knee repairs Tuesday were minor, time seems to be working against him relative to the possibility of suiting up in Week 1. In his absence, Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin top the Chargers' wideout depth cart, while Tyrell Williams, Dontrelle Inman, James Jones and Javontee Herndon jostle for slotting behind the team's top duo.

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Won't have timetable until after surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) will not have a recovery timetable until after he undergoes surgery later this week, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Johnson has already been diagnosed with a torn meniscus, but the full extent of the damage won't be known until doctors get a clear look inside his knee. Even a best-case scenario would likely lead to missed time at the beginning of the season, while a worst-case scenario might rule him out for the year. Dontrelle Inman and Tyrell Williams are the favorites to earn the No. 3 wideout role in Johnson's absence, though the Chargers have also been working out some veteran free agents.

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Tears meniscus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson suffered a torn meniscus during Sunday's practice and will require surgery, NFL.com reports.

Johnson's injury is a tough early development for the Chargers' offense. The veteran caught 45 passes for nearly 500 yards and scored three touchdowns in 10 games during his first year in San Diego, but will now be sidelined for an undetermined, but possibly lengthy, time period due to his knee injury. With him out, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon could slide up the Chargers' wide receiver depth chart.

Chargers' Stevie Johnson: Injures right knee Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson injured his right knee during Sunday's practice, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The results of an MRI are pending.

Johnson was unable to put any pressure on his right leg during the walk to the locker room. While the Chargers are likely bracing for the worst, the upcoming evaluation period will determine the extent of the injury.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Played in only 10 games in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

With Johnson out for the Chargers' season finale, the team's Week 17 wideout corps is in line to be headed by Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Listed as questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

As is fellow wideout Javontee Herndon, with the duo's Week 17 status not likely to be confirmed until the Chargers' inactives are released in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. Johnson was limited at practice both Thursday and Friday, after working fully on Wednesday.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Limited at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) was limited at practice Thursday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

After practicing fully Wednesday, Johnson was limited Thursday, which clouds the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Johnson last saw action in Week 13 and has since missed the Chargers' last three games.

December 24, 2015 07:12 PM
Chargers' Steve Johnson: Inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Raiders.

With Johnson still out, the Chargers' Week 16 wideout corps is in line to be headed by Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Questionable for Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raiders.

Johnson, who last played on Dec. 6, was limited at practice this week, with his Week 16 status unlikely to be confirmed until the release of the Chargers' inactives in advance of Thursday's 8:25 ET kickoff.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Limited Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

In his first practice since injuring his groin on Dec. 6, Johnson backed up Monday's estimated injury report, which listed him as limited. Fitting in individual drills is certainly an encouraging development, but he doesn't have much time to build up his conditioning with the Chargers taking the field Thursday in Oakland. If he returns, though, his experience would bode well for his potential in a WR corps composed of Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman, and Javontee Herndon, among others.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Returns to practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) returned to practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Johnson is practicing for the first time since suffering a groin injury in Week 13. His return would be a welcome development for the San Diego offense, as the unit has relied on inexperienced wideouts -- namely Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon -- alongside Malcom Floyd the past couple weeks. Johnson will probably be the favorite to lead his team in targets if he's able to return for Thursday's favorable matchup in Oakland. However, the short week could make it tough for him to be ready, perhaps delaying a return until the regular-season finale.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Listed as limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is listed as limited on Monday's injury report.

Although the Chargers didn't hold practice to kick off Week 16 prep, an estimation of reps was required by the league. Johnson received a limited designation, which he'll attempt to build upon in his quest to return from a two-game absence Thursday at Oakland.

Chargers' Steve Johnson: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Johnson will sit this one out, though the Chargers' offense will welcome Dontrelle Inman back to their Week 15 wideout corps, which also includes Malcom Floyd and Javontee Herndon.

December 18, 2015 03:42 PM
Chargers' Steve Johnson: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) did not practice Friday and is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Johnson was sidelined for practice all this week, making him unlikely to face the Dolphins. With him out, Javontee Herndon (shoulder) and Dontrelle Inman (neck) could enjoy larger receiving roles, should they both clear their probable tags.

December 17, 2015 07:54 PM
Chargers' Steve Johnson: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Still unable to practice, Johnson is looking shaky for Sunday's favorable matchup with the Dolphins, after sitting out a Week 14 loss to the Chiefs. The Chargers do seem to have some help on the way, with Dontrelle Inman (neck) logging full practices both Wednesday and Thursday. Javontee Herndon (shoulder) was also a full participant at Thursday's session.

December 16, 2015 07:56 PM
Chargers' Steve Johnson: Remains sidelined Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Johnson remains iffy for Sunday's game against the Dolphins and Javontee Herndon is now banged up, but the Chargers' wideout corps at least saw a boost Wednesday when Dontrelle Inman returned to a full practice.
