Ted Miller, of ESPN.com, reports Southern California RB Stafon Johnson (throat) dropped a weight bar on his throat Monday, Sept. 28, and required emergency surgery. Johnson was bench pressing when the bar slipped and fell on his throat, according to the school. A source close to the program said Johnson was immediately coughing up blood. It is unclear how long he will be out for, but Johnson is unlikely to play Saturday, Oct. 3. Head strength and conditioning coach Chris Carlisle said Johnson was using a spotter at the time of the accident.
Ouch, thats gotta hurt.
