Chargers LB Jarret Johnson Had Surgery On Hand


San Diego Chargers LB Jarret Johnson has surgery on his hand on Monday. He hurt his hand against the Miami Dolphins in the 4th quarter and he had a surgery in order to repair the damage. There still is no timetable on his return. Johnson also is recovering from a groin injury and has been limited in his action because of the injury.

Johnson was having one of his best seasons, but he has missed a ton of time because of injuries. The Chargers have been short on outside linebackers lately. Thomas Keiser and Tourek Williams have stepped in to be the starters for the Chargers the last couple of games. The team also signed Adrian Robinson in order to help with the depth at the position. Larry English has gone down. Dwight Freeney has gone down. Melvin Ingram has a chance to return, but the team and fans know that he will not be at 100% in his return to the field.

Johnson could make it back onto the field soon, but he may need to play with a cast on his hand. Hopefully he can make an impact on Sundays and stay on the field for the team.

    JJ should take a game or two off, no need to get a 3rd injury.

      Clay Mathews took time off for a broken thumb, but then returned wearing a club. Wonder what kind of surgery JJ has? If something is broken, they probably wait for the bone to fuse a little bit. If it’s stitches, how long do they wait then? Aren’t you knowledgeable about this stuff, Blanksy?

        You know the cloak an dagger routine in Chargers Park. I like JJ be he is not the god of thunder….

          I dunno… so people can talk shit about the material, and say that’s why they left other sites… even though they still go to them daily…. Lmfao!

          Personally, I write because my posts were getting too long, and Ernie decided it wouldn’t make the site look TOO bad.. lol… I think.

          When it used to be just the four of us back in the day, it didn’t seem so crazy, huh Arnie? Just spew whatever… nobody was looking anyway… hahaha!

          • arnie

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            At least you were just talking about one player… remember when I asked if the WHOLE draft was a bust? I even added a poll… lol.

          • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

            And to think that my first submission was about how we should keep Gaither… lmao!

    Man, I recorded the Dolphins game, was away on a gig Saturday. Came home on Sunday and thought I’ll wait to watch it until I unpack and the game’s over to watch it. I frickin’ deleted it after hearing they lost another one. My frustration is mounting that they can’t seem to figure it out already. Injuries continue to plague this team as if it were cursed. I’ll be watching the game this weekend, but man I think the fat lady is already singing for the Chargers……
    What’s one more season going to bring this D if the DC keeps allowing his CBs to play 10 yards off of the WRs? How will they improve with a lousy NT?
    Don’t get me started on the anemic Red Zone Offense. I read someone comment about something to the effect of “why hasn’t TT chimed in on any of this?” I too wonder….
    6 games left, I don’t honestly have much excitement left. I feel let down again and am already setting my clock to wait and see what if for next season…
