Johnson should be back in action sooner than expected.
Initial reports suggesting Liverpool defender Glen Johnson would be out injured for months appear to be wrong as the Englishman tweets otherwise.
Injury doesnt seem as bad as first thought, hopefully be back sooner than originally expected! #BetterNews

It was thought that Johnson could be on the sidelines for around 10 weeks, which would have ruined the Reds’ impeccable defensive start to the new Premier League season.
So far the club have a 100% record in the league after successive wins against Stoke City, Aston Villa and Manchester United and with the right-back in the side, the Merseyside outfit have also kept three clean-sheets.
It’s the best start to a season in the division for the club since 1994/95 and manager Brendan Rodgers could have done without losing one of the most senior players at Anfield.
Johnson has been with the club for four years following a huge £17.5m transfer from Portsmouth, after previous spells with Chelsea and West Ham United.
Since then the full-back has become established for the England national side – earning 48 caps to date – and has also played 146 matches for Liverpool in all competitions.
The injury to the defender meant the 29-year-old missed out on the Three Lions’ two recent World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine; with Tottenham Hotspur’s Kyle Walker filling in.
Walker was criticised on several occasions during the two matches and manager Roy Hodgson will probably be glad to welcome Johnson back to the international setup.
