Johnson will be hoping to put 2013 behind him. 

The year started with a serious knee injury during the NAB Cup which required a reconstruction and did not improve from there. 

He was hit with news late in the year that the surgery had failed and he needed to undergo a second operation, this time using a hybrid LARS
option. 

An invaluable member of the backline when fit and one of coach John Longmire’s favourites, the youngster will be aiming to conquer his knee troubles and re-establish himself in the side this year.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 57 overall.

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was a disaster for poor Alex. He suffered an ACL rupture early on and had a knee reconstruction and then unfortunately had some complications with it and had to have a second operation.

His pre-season has been slow, but good. He’s back on track now and he’s running and is very close to starting some ball work.

We hope in 2014 that AJ has far better luck and he can return to some of that great form he showed in 2012.
