Default Johnson knocked out of preseason game after hurting left shoulder

Johnson knocked out of preseason game after hurting left shoulder

Associated Press
Updated: August 17, 2008, 8:59 PM ET

CINCINNATI -- Bengals receiver Chad Johnson landed awkwardly while trying to make a catch in the first quarter against Detroit on Sunday night, then left the game to have his left shoulder examined.


Johnson

Cornerback Brian Kelly hit Johnson as he tried to pull in a pass from Carson Palmer on the Bengals' first series, jarring the ball loose. Kelly came up with the interception and an off-balance Johnson landed on his left side.

The Pro Bowl receiver rolled around on the field in pain for several seconds, then got up and went to the sideline. Trainers examined the shoulder on the field before Johnson went to the locker room for further examination and treatment. He was ruled out for the rest of the game.

The Bengals already were without Pro Bowl receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, missing his second preseason game with a sore hamstring.

The Bengals don't have much experience at receiver behind Johnson and Houshmandzadeh. Rookie Marcus Maxwell started Sunday in Houshmandzadeh's spot. The Bengals released No. 3 receiver Chris Henry after his latest arrest in the offseason.

Johnson had lobbied for an offseason trade, but the Bengals refused. He abandoned his threat to sit out the season and reported to training camp on time, but wasn't able to participate in practice initially because he was still recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. He looked close to full speed in practice last week.

Missing Johnson would be a huge setback to the Bengals, who also played without starting running back Rudi Johnson on Sunday. Rudi Johnson was slowed by a hamstring injuries last season and has missed the first two preseason games with a sore hamstring.

Chris Perry started at tailback for the Bengals.

Now he can go attend to matters in court for changing his name to Ocho Stinko!

Well dang. I'm in Pee-ay for a couple of days so I'm missing the hissy fits!

Maybe he's faking it like he did in Buffalo last season.

Not claiming to be an expert but it looked like a separated shoulder. The announcer thought so too.
