Larry Johnson May Have Reaggravated His Foot Injury

New, comments

Who really knows how bad it is though.

Johnson received a heavier workload in practice Wednesday than he has since the injury in early November. Johnson shared the first-team snaps with Kolby Smith and appeared as if he was preparing to play Sunday against the Lions in Detroit.

But about halfway through practice, Johnson headed for the sideline and spoke with one of the trainers, careful the whole time not to put weight on the injured foot.

He then left the practice field and didn’t return.

That left his status muddled in all sorts of mixed signals.

I wasn't expecting Larry Johnson back and neither were most fans. With this recent "setback", whatever it is, he'll be even less likely to play. Again, why wasn't Larry Johnson put on injured reserve as soon as our playoff chances were nil?
