Written by Tony Ghaul

Detroit Lions star safety CJ Gardner Johnson is feared to have suffered a potential season-ending torn pec in yesterday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, as per Ian Rapoport.

Gardner-Johnson signed a one-year deal with the Lions, after spending last season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Gardner-Johnson had 13 tackles and a pair of pass breakups in two games this season. Last season with the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles, Gardner-Johnson tied for the NFL lead in Interceptions with 6.

The 25 year-old Gardner-Johnson was selected in the fourth-round of the 2019 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. He spent three seasons with the Saints, before being traded to the Eagles on August 30, 2022.
