Now that Johnson’s career ha finally gotten underway, it could be coming to an end.

According to Gentry Estes of 24/7 Sports, a “long-term medical issue” could keep Johnson off of the field.

"UGA will likely place Johnson on medical scholarship because of the condition, per sources, though the team has yet to officially confirm that step. Per NCAA rules, a player can take a medical scholarship and continue to stay in school on scholarship while not counting against a team’s 85-man limit provided he no longer continue to play football."

It’s good to see the Bulldogs are handling things properly but it is a huge blow to both Johnson and the Bulldogs.
