    Chris Johnson Hospitalized: Updates on RB After Being Shot in Arm | Bleacher Report
    [​IMG]
    Associated Press
    Free-agent running back Chris Johnson is recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred early Sunday morning in Orlando during a shooting that took the life of a friend.

    Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the news:

    Ex-#Jets RB Chris Johnson is recovering at an Orlando hospital after being shot in the arm last night, source said. He is going to be OK

    — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 8, 2015
    Chris Johnson was back home, riding around with friends and his car took gunfire, source said. There were casualties, including a friend

    — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 8, 2015
    The severity of Johnson's injuries is unknown at this time. Rich Cimini of ESPN reported the shooting was a drive-by and Johnson took a bullet in the shoulder.

    Steven Lemongello of the Orlando Sentinel provided additional details on the situation, including the identity of the deceased victim:

    Deputies responded to a shooting call and arrived to find a Jeep the driver dead inside and two other men with gunshot wounds on the sidewalk. The victims said that an unknown vehicle pulled up beside them at the red light and opened fire into the Jeep, deputies said. The deceased driver was identified as Dreekins Oriko Johnson, 28. The two living victims, Reggie Johnson and Chris Johnson, both 29, were taken to a hospital in stable condition. Reggie Johnson was shot in the shoulder, hand and leg, while Chris Johnson was shot in the shoulder.

    Johnson, 29, is a free agent after the Jets declined his option for 2015 last month. He rushed for a career-low 663 yards and one touchdown last season, breaking a streak of six straight years with at least 1,000 rushing yards.

    At this time, police have not provided further details regarding what led to the shooting. There is also no word on any suspects, as the investigation is ongoing.

    Who knows? Lead in the arm may help offset that fact that he's got no gas left in the tank. :dontknow:

    If I was lucky enough to play in the NFL, I wouldn't hang out with gangstas. Too much money on the table.

    How many "ghetto" athletes make fortunes and are suddenly upstanding citizens? Maybe a handful?

    Throwing money at a piece of shit does not turn them into productive members of society.

    So everyone in the car was named "Johnson," but they're not related?
