Johnson does not need surgery on his injured shoulder, and he could return to training in three or four weeks.

Manager Dick Advocaat noted that if Johnson can return to training within that time frame, he could be match fit in about six or seven weeks, which is much better than the minimum of two months that he was expected to be out.

Johnson suffered a shoulder injury during training this week and will be out for at least two months, the BBC reports.

Manager Dick Advocaat said Johnson will have scans on the shoulder Wednesday, but the injury is considered serious, hence the multi-month absence estimate. Johnson is a solid contributor to the Black Cats' attack, though his fantasy upside is dwarfed by plenty of players.

Johnson played the full 90 and tallied an assist in Sunderland's 4-2 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.

Johnson connected with Jermain Defoe on a clever through ball for the team's first goal of the game, though it came with the team already down 3-0. Johnson had a tough season last year, scoring four times and adding two assists in 32 Premier League appearances. He'll hope that Saturday's assist can spur him onto a better season this year.

Johnson grabbed an assist and made three key passes in a 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Johnson had a disappointing season as he was in and out of the starting XI and dealt with some persona issues throughout the season. He has always been a talented player and it may have to be a change of scenery for Johnson to be able to find a rhythm. He finished his season with only four goals and one assist in 32 games played.

Johnson is available off the bench for Saturday's match at West Ham.

Johnson was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor, but new manager Dick Advocaat said he would review the club's position, and he has apparently become comfortable with the potential outcome to allow Johnson to play.

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat said the club would "review its position" regarding Johnson's suspension pending a police investigation of the player, reports the Daily Mail.

Johnson was arrested in early March on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor. The player has been bailed until April 23, and the club said afterward it would review its position. Johnson has been training with a fitness coach in the meantime.

Johnson was arrested Monday on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor, and the club has suspended him indefinitely pending the outcome of the police investigation, Sky Sports reports.

Given the inquiry isn't expected to be short, Johnson doesn't seem likely to play for the Black Cats any time soon.

Johnson had an unheard of 17 crosses in the 0-0 draw to West Brom Saturday.

Johnson has yet to record an assist on the season, but if he continues to cross at this rate, that zero wont last much longer. That makes for 30 crosses in the past two matches and he has clearly found a new role attacking down the wings and sending in endless crosses. He's had a disappointing season scoring four goals with no assists, but has seemingly earned back his starting role and has found some rhythm with his new role. Look for him to start next Saturday when Sunderland travel to Manchester United.
