The junior scored the Tigers’ first touchdown of the season, breaking free for a 60-yard score in the first quarter to put Auburn up 10-0 over Georgia Southern following a 50-yard Daniel Carlson field goal.

Johnson looked like he was about to break for another long run, but pulled up short around the 15 yard line. He walked off the field on his own and immediately went into the injury tent on the Auburn sideline.

Auburn reporter Ben Wolk provided some insight as to what was unfolding on the sidelines.
