He ran for 122 yards and a touchdown in 14 carries against Washington before suffering a foot injury. The injury, which was first diagnosed a game earlier as a left foot bruise, included a sprain that kept him out of practices and limited his playing time for the rest of the season. He returned at the end of the season, rushing for 104 yards in the Rose Bowl. </li></ul><ul><li>As a junior in 2008, Johnson led the Trojans in rushing yards with 705 yards on 138 carries and nine touchdowns.

  4. 4. Accident <ul><li>On September 28, 2009, Johnson suffered an injury when the 275 pounds (125 kg) barbell he was lifting fell on his throat during a routine team workout. Bleeding from his mouth and nose, he was rushed to California Hospital Medical Center and had three emergency surgeries to repair damage to his crushed vocal cord, Adam's apple and torn muscles. Doctors partially credited his survival to well developed muscles around his neck, which helped him keep open a breathing passage, as well as his level of fitness. He was moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and was released on October 15, 2009, though he was still unable to speak and had a breathing tube in his throat. The injury ended his 2009 season, during which he had run for a team-high five touchdowns in the Trojans' first four games. As a fourth-year senior, Johnson can enter the NFL or apply to the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility because of a medical hardship. Later in the 2009 season, the USC football team honored Johnson by wearing helmet stickers that read &quot;STA FIGHT’’. </li></ul>
