Chargers’ Johnson (hamstring) to miss MNF


The Sports Xchange

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Stevie Johnson has been ruled out of Monday Night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a hamstring injury.

Johnson, who is San Diego’s second-leading receiver with 18 catches for 205 yards and two touchdowns, suffered the injury during the third quarter of last week’s 30-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

The Chargers, though, get Antonio Gates back after the tight end served his four-game suspension for PEDs.

Also, wide receiver Malcom Floyd practiced in full Thursday after suffering a concussion versus Cleveland. It appears Floyd will play Monday as long as he is cleared by an independent neurologist.
