Following surgery to repair his meniscus yesterday, Chargers WR Stevie Johnson has learned he's out for the season, source said.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson was shaping up as a nice late-round sleeper after an efficient first season with the Chargers. The team signed James Jones for depth, but Dontrelle Inman is/was Johnson's direct backup. Tyrell Williams (6'3") could potentially push Keenan Allen to the slot. Johnson's absence probably makes Travis Benjamin a solid pick in the double-digit rounds, though he has missed several practices with an unknown ailment.
