Stafon Johnson Files Lawsuit Against USC

Former USC and current Titan running back Stafon Johnson held a news conference Monday to announce a personal injury lawsuit that he has filed against USC.

The lawsuit asks for unspecified damages from USC and Jamie Yanchar, a former assistant training and strengthening coach at the school.

Johnson was sidelined for nearly all of the 2009 season after suffering what doctors described as near-fatal injuries when a weightlifting bar carrying 275 pounds fell on his neck during a workout on campus on Sept. 28, 2009 Johnson underwent multiple surgeries and therapy and was signed as a free agent by the Titans after the 2010 NFL draft. But he suffered a season-ending ankle injury during a preseason game last August.

Johnson stressed, “This lawsuit has not reduced in any way my love for the cardinal and gold.”.
