SAN DIEGO — San Diego Chargers wide receiver Stevie Johnson will miss the season with a knee injury, Coach Mike McCoy confirmed Thursday.

Johnson hurt his right knee during the second practice of training camp while getting up to run downfield after making a diving catch. The nine-year pro underwent surgery Tuesday and was told Wednesday that his season was done.

“It’s an unfortunate situation,” McCoy said. “I had a great conversation with Stevie last night and for what happened, he had a great mindset.”

Johnson, who’s often used as a slot receiver, missed six games last year with hamstring and groin issues. He had 45 catches for three touchdowns and 497 yards.
