that looks bad...does anyone know much about this sort of injury? Is it possible that johnson can do what he used to after recovering from this

clean break of the tibia - it's not his ankle... should heal up nicely if given the right time to recover. just needs time for the bone to knit properly... one of the doctors here can probably tell you more...

Spoke to a good mate who was IMO probably the most dangerous running half in Canterbury in his day- he done the same injury when he was younger. He said physically it was sweet- got all his speed back etc ( and that's without any of the resources sj will have available to him) but it took him a good season to get his confidence back.
Sounds like that's gonna be the biggest hurdle.

So one season for him to get his confidence back and focus on his distribution, game management, and kicking which gets us to the top 4.... then in 2017 he starts to run again and we win the comp?

Injured Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson yesterday removed the moonboot from his left foot and ditched the crutches to take his first tentative steps since breaking his ankle back six weeks ago.

The 24-year-old posted a video on social media of him walking unassisted and allowing the injured leg to bear his full weight, as his recovery continues after suffering a fractured left leg and dislocated ankle while playing against Manly on July 25.

The Facebook video shows Johnson wearing a beaming smile as he makes small steps inside the Warriors' team room at their Sydney hotel, during the lead-up to last night's final round 26-22 defeat to the Canterbury Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.

"Look what I'm doing now! Full weight baring [sic] without the moon boot for the first time! Hope you guys appreciate my quad game lol #HappyMan#Progress," read Johnson's post.

Following surgery and weeks of inactivity, his left leg has been stripped of a lot of muscle which he will slowly regain over the coming months.

Johnson began cardio work three weeks ago under the watchful eye of former Warriors and Kiwis enforcer and club trainer Ruben Wiki.

Long hours spent on the grinder in the club gym are just the start of his rehab and he hopes to be back running by early December.

The Kiwis international and current Golden Boot holder hopes to make his playing return in next year's Dick Smith NRL Auckland Nines tournament at Eden Park on Waitangi weekend February 6 and 7.

Johnson's injury came as a hammer blow to the Warriors who looked on course to make their first finals appearance since the 2011 grand final, when they climbed into fourth spot on the NRL ladder following their round 18 win over Melbourne Storm.

The following week they were brought back to earth with a 24-0 loss to the Sydney Roosters and the following week lost Johnson for the season during the round 20 clash against the Sea Eagles.

They never recovered, losing their last eight games to equal their 2012 record for most consecutive defeats in a season.

Speaking at last night's post-match press conference, captain Simon Mannering admitted the loss of Johnson was a big blow but felt his side should have coped better in his absence.

"For sure, he's a real key part of our team and he was a loss but we still had faith in the guys coming through and belief that we could get a job done but as a group we didn't handle that," said Mannering.

"I don't know it us senior players didn't rally the younger boys good enough we didn't handle it as well as we should have.

"To lose eight in a row after that is very disappointing, especially with the players we had out there that were more than capable of it. We didn't do a good enough job as a team."

Don't worry about Shaun he will be sweet as
Wow, that is so good to see, getting active like that speeds up the healing process.
Mind you that Fijian winger in the All Blacks after breaking his leg went back to Fiji to see his Witch Doctor and he is back on the field today.

UPDATE ON JOHNSON’S PROGRESS
Written by TONY ADAMS, November 1, 2015


NEVER fear, Warriors fans. Superstar halfback Shaun Johnson is ahead of the clock in his race to be fit for the 2016 kick-off and there’s every chance you’ll be seeing his brand of crazy stepping again as early as March.

The Warriors’ season imploded when Johnson broke his ankle against Manly in July, with the team losing their final eight games to limp home in 13th spot.

The gifted 25-year-old isn’t back running yet but he’s making steady progress in his rehab.

“He’s coming along nicely and is probably ahead of schedule at this stage,” Warriors coach Andrew McFadden says.

“He has his full range of movement back but still has screws in the leg and we’re not rushing him.

“They will come out soon and we hope to have him out there running again before Christmas. If that happens, he should be right for round one and we’re optimistic. He’s done a lot of hard work with the medical staff and is a quick healer.

“We have our fingers crossed that he will be right because he’s obviously a key man for us.”

The Warriors have signed veteran former Eels, Manly and Sharks halfback Jeff Robson on a one-year deal as ‘insurance’ should Johnson miss the opening rounds.

“Jeff is an experienced campaigner and he should be good for us,” McFadden says.

“He’s a very solid player with a good kicking game.”

The Warriors only have four players on the Kiwis’ England tour and McFadden believes this will benefit their 2016 preparation.

“In some recent seasons we have been without a lot of key players until January because of end-of-season representative commitments,” he says. “But the fact we only have four guys away means the bulk of the squad will be training in November/December and get a full pre-season in.

“That’s a good situation for us to be in, particularly as we have had a fair turnover of players.”

Injured Vodafone Warriors Manu Vatuvei, Thomas Leuluai, Shaun Johnson and Ben Henry are all on target to make a full return for the start of the 2016 NRL season.

Vatuvei is back running and is expected to resume full training early in 2016 after having surgery on the right shoulder that ended his 2015 season with four rounds still to go.

Henry was able to play just four matches before having his 2015 season ended by another ACL knee injury while Leuluai suffered the same injury after appearing in 10 games. Both players are back running and are on track to return to full training early in the New Year.

Johnson’s recovery is also on schedule. He had two syndesmotic screws removed from his left ankle last week and is set to start running again later this month.

Of the seven players on the rehab list only back rower Sione Lousi and 2015 Vodafone Junior Warriors captain Toafofoa Sipley are expected to miss the start of the 2016 season.

Lousi is forecast to be out for four to six months after needing further surgery on a wrist injury which had troubled him during the season while Sipley, who needed a full knee reconstruction, will start running next month with a return date of February-March tipped.

Nathaniel Roache (pectoral), who played both NYC and New South Wales Cup football this year, will be back in full training next month.

An almost full squad to chose from when the season starts? Sounds like a wonderful fantasy.

No wonder Lousi was going nowhere with a 4-6 month injury...
I remember someone posting that he was on $300K a year. I thought that was a ludicrous amonut and shot it down but after talking to some of the boys it mightn't be far off the mark. They didnt know the exact figure but all they would say was that he was on really good money.

That would be the real reason for staying put another year. Who wouldnt stay on that coin to play NSW Cup. He can look arond for next year and take a huge paycut somewhere else. For now its cash money time. Dean Bell and Wayne Scurrah really fucked that one up...
