Oakland Raiders cornerback Chris Johnson left the team Wednesday to be with his family in Texas after a shooting left his sister dead and his mother severely wounded.
Jennifer Johnson, 33, was shot and killed on Wednesday. Her mother, Della Johnson, was also wounded in the incident but is expected to survive.
Police arrested Jennifer's estranged boyfriend, 46-year-old Eugene Esters, for the crimes. He is charged with murder and attempted murder. Bail was set at $750,000.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Esters and Johnson argued about their two-year-old child, who was not at the scene. Homicide detectives say Esters lived with Johnson but had been asked to move out recently.
Chris Johnson had missed most of the 2011 season after getting an infection after sports hernia surgery during training camp. He returned to the lineup in last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins. Coaches expect him to return to the team in time for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
