USC's Johnson leaving hospital

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

USC tailback Stafon Johnson will be discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Wednesday morning.

Johnson has been hospitalized since Sept. 28, when he underwent more than seven hours of surgery after he dropped a weight bar bearing 275 pounds onto his throat while bench pressing, causing serious injuries to his throat and voice box.

Johnson, a senior, won't play again this season.
