Johnson injured his lower back, and, according to his agent is resting, "although quire uncomfortably." He is expected to try to play Thursday.
3. Bannon is out of NSC: Stephen Bannon, the man who has been a lightning rod in President Donald Trump's inner circle, was removed from the National Security Council on Wednesday. Some reports claimed Bannon threatened to resign after he was dropped from the council, but was talked into staying by a top Republican donor. Bannon said he did not threaten to resign and that reports that he did were "total nonsense."
