Rookie Stafon Johnson has a game ball from his NFL debut. He also has had his dislocated right ankle repaired, and Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher isn’t ready to call the running back’s season over just yet.

On Sunday, Johnson tweeted that he was fresh out of surgery. This is the running back whose senior season at Southern California was ended in September when a barbell crushed his neck and larynx, leaving him to learn how to talk again and trying to play his way into the NFL as an undrafted free agent. Before surgery he promised that he’ll be back better than before.

A couple hours later, Fisher said that the doctors “got it all put back together.”

The coach said Johnson also broke his fibula, but was hesitant to share the extent of the rookie’s injury. Asked if the injury means Johnson’s season will be ended by the Titans placing him on injured reserve, Fisher said that was hard to say.
