Stevie Johnson carried off field with knee injury

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers wide receiver Steve Johnson was carried off the field Sunday with a right knee injury after going down in a pass drill.

Johnson, who applied no pressure to his right leg as he was carried off, was examined by trainers for several minutes before he was taken inside.

The injury occurred on an pass from Philip Rivers.

Fantasy Impact: 

Johnson was poised to be the slot guy with Keenan Allen and newly signed Travis Benjamin on the outside. It was shaping up to be the deepest the Chargers WRs have been in a few years. It's obviously not a good sign he couldn't put pressure on the injury but it could have been out of caution. We'll continue to monitor the situation. Dontrelle Inman is next up on the depth chart.
