In the past two weeks, the two NFL stars have become the latest victims of the dreaded Chunky Soup Curse.
According to New York-based sports writer Dan Lewis, the curse mysteriously brings serious injury to NFL athletes who appear in commercials for Campbells Chunky Soup.
This past Sunday (Nov. 4), Johnson star running back for the Kansas City Chiefs injured his right foot during a loss to the Green Bay Packers, and isnt expected to return to the turf for a while.
But the curse gets even worse for New York Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma.
On October 21, Vilma suffered a season-ending knee injury during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which will keep him on injured reserve for the remainder of the NFL season.
Lewis isnt too surprised by the latest catastrophes of the Chunky Soup Curse, since over the years many players have been injured, including Donovan McNabb, Terrell Davis, and Kurt Warner.
And with seven weeks left in the regular NFL season, Lewis says theres plenty of time for more debilitating damage.
Lewis gives Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck until the end of the year before he falls victim to the curse for the second time.
However, Lewis expects San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson to remain unscathed, since hes a strong, solid player.
