Mossi Johnson Out for the Season

Oct. 10 -- UCLA's receiver and defensive back Mossi Johnson is out for the season...

Mossi Johnson, the sophomore receiver who also had played some safety this year, is out for the season, according to sources.

Johnson injured his knee against Arizona State and was getting tests done this week.  One unsubstantiated reported told BRO that he was an ACL tear.

Johnson tored his ACL his senior year in high school playing in the Semper Fi All-Star game.  That injury made him delay his enrollment at UCLA until the next spring. It's uncertain if the injury is to his same knee.  

Johnson had earned the starting slot receiver position heading into this season, looking like one of the most explosive receivers on the team, but struggled a bit catching the ball. Because of his athleticism, he also played as a safety in UCLA's most recent games. 

Johnson had eight receptions for 41 yards on the year. 

Johnson is a true sophomore, but since his injury occurred in the fifth game of the season it's unlikely he'd get granted a redshirt year for this season.
