Sport Bisi Johnson suffers torn ACL, out for 2021 season
Avenatti Grills Paraplegic Client He Allegedly Stole From: ‘Did You Appreciate Me?’
SANTA ANA, California—In March 2019, after Michael Avenatti’s millions in debt had already made headlines, the embattled celebrity lawyer paid a visit to Geoffrey Johnson, a client he hadn’t seen in a while. Avenatti was hoping to change the narrative after a judgment-debtor exam—a proceeding where creditors can question debtors under oath about their finances—revealed he allegedly pocketed most of Johnson’s $4 million settlement, which stemmed from a lawsuit after Johnson was injured in a Los Angeles County jail and became paraplegic.
We’ve said numerous times that the’ competition for the third wide receiver spot was going to be one to watch throughout Training Camp. Unfortunately, we’ve just learned that the field of players jockeying for that position just got a little less crowded.
— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) WR Olabisi Johnson suffered a torn ACL in practice Friday, source said. Rough break for a promising young player who has 45 catches over his first two NFL seasons.
Close, Personal Friend of The Daily Norseman Tom Pelissero™ is reporting that Bisi Johnson suffered a torn ACL in Friday’s practice and will miss the 2021 season. We mentioned in our roundup from yesterday that Johnson had gone down with a non-contact injury. That’s usually a pretty bad thing, and now the worst possible scenario has been confirmed.
How Ashleigh Johnson is sinking stereotypes and hoping to change what water polo looks like
Arguably the pound-for-pound best American athlete at these Olympic Games plays one of those sports the vast majority of us only pay attention to once every four summers. Ashleigh Johnson is the goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s water polo team, considered by those who know the sport the best on the planet between the pipes. The American women are currently on a seven-year streak of dominance, entering Tokyo as the two-time defending gold medalists and winning every major international event since 2014. Johnson has been in goal for a significant chunk of it.
Johnson was a seventh-round pick of the Vikings in the 2019out of Colorado State. He had a decent rookie year, in part because he got a lot of snaps while Adam Thielen was out with an injury. He caught 31 passes for 294 yards and three scores as a rookie. His numbers dipped last season, as he caught just 13 passes for 189 yards.
With Johnson now done for the year, the competition for the WR3 spot appears to be between the newly-signed Dede Westbrook, third-year receiver Chad Beebe, and rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette. Perhaps someone else will emerge at some point during camp, but those three have to be considered the lead pack at things stand right now.
Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery for Bisi Johnson and a comeback in 2022.
