Bengals wideout Johnson to have ankle surgery Wednesday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on both ankles Wednesday that he's been needing since last season, a source close to the player confirmed on Tuesday.
Johnson's ankle problem was the subject of an all-day distraction last Thursday at the Bengals' minicamp. Johnson told the team he couldn't practice because of the injury. The team snapped back and said he was simply refusing to practice.
