Johnson, 25, missed all of the 2021 season after tearing an ACL in training camp. According to the NFL Network, Saturday’s injury occurred in his other knee, not the same one as last year.

While the Vikings’ top three receiver spots are seemingly set with Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn, Johnson was in the running for the fourth spot. In his career, he’s caught 45 passes for 483 yards and three touchdowns.

The Vikings went 0-3 in Kevin O’Connell’s first preseason as head coach. Their first regular season game is Sept. 11 at home against the Green Bay Packers.
