Bisi Johnson officially has terrible luck.

After suffering a torn ACL during training camp last year, the Minnesota Vikings wide receiver tore the ACL in his other knee during the team's final preseason game against the Denver Broncos on Saturday.

This is devastating news for Johnson, who will spend a second straight season on the sidelines. Consecutive knee injuries have derailed what was shaping up to be a promising career for the 25-year-old wideout, who flashed some potential with 45 catches for 483 receiving yards and three touchdowns during his first two NFL seasons in 2019 and 2020.

Johnson must now embark on another lengthy recovery process as he aims to get back on the field for 2023. His presence will be missed in Minnesota's talented receiving corps, where he was hoping to be a complementary option alongside Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

On the bright side, Johnson has already worked his way back from one ACL injury, so we know he's capable of doing it. He may not be the same player if/when he returns, however, as he'll be playing on two surgically-repaired knees and will have missed two full NFL seasons.
