Some sad news to report as the Raiders have excused Chris Johnson so he can deal with a death in the family. According to reports Johnson is headed to Dallas in the wake of fatal shooting that has left his sister dead and his mother wounded.
Truly sad. Our thoughts are with Johnson and his family.
As much as I hate to discuss football, Hue Jackson is expecting Johnson to play this Sunday. CJ just returned last Sunday after missing more than a month due to injury. His presence could prove crucial against the Packers’ passing attack.
But all of that’s trivial given a tragedy of this nature. Johnson’s mother is expected to recover. Still, it is always sad to see a parent outlive their child.
