Dallas Cowboys' David Buehler thinking about Stafon Johnson


Dallas Cowboys rookie kicker David Buehler is thinking about former USC teammate running back Stafon Johnson, who suffered severe throat injuries in a weightlifting accident this week.

Buehler sent Johnson a text message and received updates on Johnson's health from friends living in Los Angeles. Buehler said he was trying to figure out just how the accident occurred including what type of hand grip Johnson used when the bar slipped out of his hands.

"It's tough to hear that happened," Buehler said. "You can't be there and talk to him. I can't call him or anything. As of now, I hear he's recovering pretty fast."
