The Associated Press reports:
Chicago Bears defensive lineman Terry (Tank) Johnson was placed on probation for 18 months after pleading guilty to a misdemeanour gun charge.
Johnson was also ordered to serve 40 hours of community service. No word has come as to whether the league will also hand down a fine and/or suspension. A suspension would be a big knock for the Bears. Johnson has 3 sacks in the 2 games he has seen considerable playing time.
