Sometimes lesser-known players get injured during training camp and fans don't even seem to notice. But sometimes one of the stars gets injured and, even if it's a minor injury, it freaks everyone out.
Johnson was running a slant route in an individual drill Tuesday and leaped to catch a pass, with rookie cornerback Rashad Carmichael defending. Johnson couldn't make the catch and came down shaking his left hand. He took off his glove and walked to the sideline, where a trainer examined him.
The story says he was then carted from the field so you get a situation where folks are wondering why Johnson was "carted off the field." He wasn't really carted off -- it's just a finger -- but it's still concerning to see one of the top receivers leave camp with an injury. As Battle Red Blog says: 'Crisis averted.'
There's no update on how long it'll keep him out.
