Washington Huskies running back Dillon Johnson landed himself on the sidelines in the National Championship game after the Huskies' first play on offense.
Johnson has been battling a few injuries throughout the season and left at the end of the game against Texas in the Sugar Bowl. Before the National Championship, Johnson said he would be good to go.
It was revealed he had a ruptured bursa in his left leg and now seems to have suffered an injury to the ankle/foot on that same leg.
He was seen on the sidelines against Michigan stretching his ankle with the help of the trainers.
Dillon Johnson leaves National Championship game early with injury
Johnson has been a game-changer for the Huskies offense this season after he transferred from Mississippi State.
The run game was slow to start for the Huskies but Johnson quickly got comfortable and became a key player for the Huskies. So far, he has accumulated 1,162 yards and 22 touchdowns.
It would be a big hit to Washington's offense if they lose Johnson. Will Nixon and Tybo Rogers would be the backup options, both who have already seen some action against Michigan.
Update: Johnson is back on the field for the Huskies but looks to be in some pain.
