Stevie Johnson (meniscus surgery) will miss the entire 2016 season.
There was some hope Johnson might return after getting a second opinion, but his torn meniscus will require a full season of recovery. There are a number of avenues the Chargers can take to replace Johnson. One would be to give Keenan Allen more slot snaps with intriguing athlete Tyrell Williams playing outside. Another would be to simply insert Dontrelle Inman at slot receiver. A third would involve more two-tight end sets with Antonio Gates and second-round pick Hunter Henry playing together. Johnson's loss is far from insurmountable, but it is a blow to San Diego's short to intermediate passing game. 30-year-old Johnson remains under contract with the Bolts through 2017.

Stevie Johnson (torn meniscus) underwent surgery on Tuesday.

Johnson's operation was delayed as he sought a second opinion. The Chargers have yet to provide a timeline for his return, but Week 1 seems to be off the table. The Bolts have signed James Jones since Johnson went down. Johnson is off the fantasy radar.
Aug 9 - 5:28 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Stevie Johnson (torn meniscus) will get a second opinion before undergoing surgery.

Per Rapsheet, Johnson's timeline won't be established until he goes under the knife. It could be "weeks or months." All we really know is that Johnson won't be ready for Week 1. Johnson is safe to ignore in fantasy drafts.
Aug 1 - 1:26 PM

NFL Network's Michael Silver reports Chargers WR Stevie Johnson tore his meniscus during practice Sunday and will undergo surgery "soon."

This is perhaps the best-case scenario for Johnson after he had to be carried off the field Sunday. Depending on the severity of the injury, Johnson could end up missing weeks instead of months. Still, it is extremely unlikely he will be ready for Week 1. Dontrelle Inman should be the next man up.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson was "carried off" the practice field Sunday with a right knee injury.

Johnson was not able to apply pressure to his leg as he was carried off. He appeared to injure the knee while making a diving catch during practice. Johnson tried to get back on his feet after the play, but immediately went back down to the ground. With Johnson expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver behind Keenan Allen and Travis Benjamin, a significant injury would be a blow to San Diego's offense. Dontrelle Inman would likely be next man up.
Jul 31 - 6:59 PM

Chargers declared WR Stevie Johnson, LT King Dunlap, CB Jason Verrett, LG Orlando Franklin, TE Asante Cleveland, LB Kavell Conner, and TE Sean McGrath inactive for Week 17 against the Broncos.

Johnson is out with a groin injury, as the Chargers are banged up as a whole.
Jan 3 - 3:01 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

He appears to be a game-time decision. We don't have high hopes for San Diego's offense in their season finale. LT King Dunlap is doubtful, LG Orlando Franklin is out, and the Chargers are playing the Broncos in Denver.
Jan 1 - 2:54 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) was downgraded to "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Johnson was "full" on Wednesday after missing his third straight game in Week 16. It's unclear if he's suffered a setback. Even if he's active, Johnson won't be a viable WR3 against the Broncos' league-best defense.

Stevie Johnson (groin) is inactive for Week 16 against the Raiders.

Johnson resumed practicing this week, and should be ready for next week's finale. Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon will for the Bolts' three-wide sets. Also inactive for the Chargers are and CB Steve Williams, LB Kyle Emanuel, OL Jeff Linkenbach, LT King Dunlap, WR Vincent Brown and NT Sean Lissemore.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 06:58:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) is questionable for Thursday night's Week 16 game against the Raiders.

He returned to practice this week and should be ready to be back on the field after missing the previous two games. Johnson will be a back-end WR4.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 03:40:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) resumed practicing on Tuesday.

He was officially listed as "limited." It gives Johnson a chance to suit up for Week 16, but with the Chargers playing on Thursday Night Football, it's far from assured. Johnson's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Bolts must classify his availability. Johnson would immediately slide back into the starting lineup if active, and be a bottom-dollar WR4 against the Raiders.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 03:26:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

He's headed for his second straight absence. Fortunately for the Bolts, it looks like they'll be getting Dontrelle Inman (neck) back on Sunday. Johnson didn't practice this week and remains without a timetable.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 03:39:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) remained sidelined Thursday.

All signs point toward Johnson missing his second straight game, leaving Malcom Floyd and Dontrelle Inman to start against the Dolphins' pathetic secondary.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 02:42:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

It's not a good sign for his chances of returning this week. Johnson's status will be updated on Thursday.

Johnson and Inman have groin and neck injuries, respectively, leaving Malcom Floyd, Javontee Herndon, and Vincent Brown at receiver. Fluker is working his back from his latest concussion.
