i think most of those injuries are due to his gritty and self sacrificing(shot blocking) style of play this is the reason people like him. as for the plus minus most people dont really think that is a great way of measuring a players worth, seeing as how johnson is no offensive dynamo his line scores less than the opposition and since he is a defensive player he is likely going against offensive lines.
