Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bisi Johnson will miss his second straight season with a torn ACL, NFL Network reported Sunday.

Johnson, who missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in training camp, was injured in Saturday night’s preseason finale at Denver. The report said it was his other knee this time.

“It did not look good to me,” Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell said after Saturday’s 23-13 loss to the Broncos.

“… He’s had a really, really good training camp and has done everything we’ve asked of him at multiple spots. Very unfortunate there.”

Johnson had two catches for 25 yards before exiting with the injury.

A seventh-round draft pick by Minnesota in 2019, Johnson caught 45 passes for 483 yards and three touchdowns in 32 games (nine starts) during the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
