TENNESSEE ( On Sunday the Tennessee Titans Coach Jeff Fisher said to media sources that its rookie running back Stafon Johnson has successfully undergone a surgery for his dislocated right ankle that he suffered on Saturday during a preseason game against Seattle Seahawks. The rookie had not only dislocated his right ankle but suffered a broken fibula and a high ankle sprain. The coach on Sunday maintained that there are full chances that Stafon Johnson will be able to return to field in 8-12 weeks.

The accident took place during the preseason game of the Tennessee Titans against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday. It was the first preseason game that Stafon Johnson was playing for the Tennessee Titans after his senior year in USC came to an end with a larynx injury. Although the present injury might take some months to recover, the player and the coach both are hopeful that Stafon Johnson will be returning to field in a much better condition.

Before undergoing the surgery on Sunday Stafon Johnson said that he would be back in a form better than before. After the surgery Coach Jeff Fisher maintained that injuries are part of game and players overcome them. He maintained that Stafon Johnson will be able to put this injury behind and come back to the field. He added, “It’s going to be great to have him around as he works through the rehab process. We’ll keep him busy”. Jeff Fisher called Stafon Johnson an “outstanding” young man who had shown his worth as a league player and will get ample opportunity in the future to show his talent.
