The Colts are already reeling from an embarrassing home loss to the Bears on Sunday, and now things have gotten worse as starting defensive tackle Ed Johnson got the axe from the team after he was arrested just after midnight on Wednesday. Johnson was pulled over for speeding, which in and of itself wouldn’t have been a big deal. But things went downhill when he opened the door to his car…and the smell of ganja came wafting out.
Johnson likely would have gotten a stern warning and maybe a game or two off, provided he hadn’t been involved in that whole sexual misconduct thing that got him booted from Penn State in 2005. Now, he’s facing a long, football-free fall and winter — until the Cowboys inevitably sign him in the off-season, of course.
