He's a senior right? Does he get like a medical excuse for another season?

Assuming he wanted to play another year after graduating instead of getting on with his life.

I admittedly don't know exactly what qualifies for a medical redshirt, but my hunch is his injury occurred too deep into the season for it to be an option.

I don't believe he would qualify for medical redshirt. My understanding is that a player must have played in 4 games or less, and this injury occurred in game 6.

I think it could still apply. Almost daily, sports media is saying we didn't play anyone in the first 3 games. You've heard it for sure...only 7 combined wins. Its like if we aren't playing NFL teams they complain about our schedule.

Can't have played in more than 30% of the season or 3 games. Wish he could apply but he cannot sadly. Hope he heals up and gets a shot somewhere in the NFL.

No I think with his father being an NFL trainer for so long, I'm sure they're rehabbing to get ready for NFL tryouts.

But you can play in 4 games and still be redshirted???

He could try but I doubt he'd want to. He's ready to go pro (development wise) and will have interest from NFL teams.

Not trying to say you're wrong, just that it doesn't make much sense if you can play in 4 games and still redshirt

"Medical redshirts are approved for players who meet strict criteria: They must have suffered the season-ending injury during the first half of the season, and they could not have played in more than three games before sustaining the injury."

From NCAA.

He has already used his redshirt year, which under rule 12.8.1.5.1.2 is among the circumstances "within control" of the student-athlete or the institution. That disqualifies Johnston for a waiver of the Five-Year Rule and makes the participatory threshold moot.

Thanks for making my point. " Injury must have happened in the 1st half of the season (6 games), but no more than 3 games ( wtheck, who plays a 6 game season )

As he should. It's time for him to move on. (One of the best I've seen).

He has a chance to make an NFL paycheck for the next 5 years then get on with his life. That's a great post college start.

Really happy seeing this. Had to be devastating, suffering this blowback in the final year, specially when he was such a hugh contributor.
