According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, San Diego Chargers' receiver Stevie Johnson will miss the 2016 season.

Johnson had surgery this week to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee that he suffered during a practice at the beginning of the month.

At first, sources said that Johnson may be able to make the later part of the season but now will have to sit the 2016 season to properly rehab the knee.

In 2015 Johnson, missed six games due to injury and had 45 receptions for 497 yards with 3 touchdowns.

The 30 year-old receiver also signed a three-year deal last season worth $10.5 million that will pay him $2.9 million this year while on injured reserve.
