Stafon Johnson Dislocates Ankle

It was the comeback story of the decade: Stafon Johnson fought back from the brink of death, willing himself against all odds, all the way to a pro-career with the Tennessee Titans. Well Johnson’s career took another set back tonight, in the third quarter of the preseason opener against Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks. Johnson had a couple of nice carries, including one for 17 yards in his NFL debut, as well as a pair of receptions. Unfortunately, during his last catch he was hit with a spinning tackle, his foot twisted sideways and Johnson’s face wretched in unmistakable pain. Play stopped as team doctors rushed from the sidelines to set his leg in an air cast. Both Pete Carroll and Jeff Fisher came to his side and spoke to him as he sat there surrounded by doctors. He was then carted off the field. The Titans, via Twitter, released the initial diagnosis as a dislocated right ankle.

Some reporters are already calling this the end of Stafon’s season, perhaps his career. I think, if history has taught us anything, this won’t be the last we see of Stafon Johnson. Don’t count him out just yet.

Fight on, Stafon!
