Johnson caught 7-of-8 targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 33-3 blowout loss to the Chiefs. Johnson led the Chargers in receiving Sunday, and should continue to see a healthy number of targets, as the Chargers have already lost Keenan Allen (kidney) and possibly Malcolm Floyd (shoulder), who wasn't active in Week 11. Working out of the slot, Johnson isn't really suited to be the team's No. 1 option in the passing game, but it's unlikely that wideouts such as Dontrelle Inman and Javontree Herndon will be a major factor. The veteran Johnson could be in line for a solid game in Week 12, taking on a Jaguars' secondary that has had trouble against the pass in 2015.
Johnson caught a team-high seven passes (on 10 targets) for 68 yards in Monday's loss to the Bears. Johnson was left as San Diego's lone proven wideout after Malcom Floyd went down with a shoulder injury early in Monday's game. That allowed Floyd to register season-highs in both receptions and targets, while his 68 yards trailed only his Week 1 output of 82 yards through the air. Although the Chargers now enter a bye week to potentially return to health, Johnson could continue to benefit front San Diego's mostly depleted receiving options.
Johnson (shoulder) caught two of his four targets for 28 yards on Sunday at Baltimore. After missing two weeks earlier this season with a hamstring injury, Johnson has now played in back to back games but only managed six catches in those contests. For the year, he has 24 receptions for 283 yards and two touchdowns, but his best games were in Weeks 1 and 2. Johnson will look to get more involved next week against the Bears.
Johnson (back) returned to action after leaving the field for a short time Sunday against the Ravens, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tibune reports. Good news for the Chargers and their passing attack, as Johnson will give them an added receiving option against a Ravens defense that struggles to stop the pass.
Johnson (shoulder) is questionable to return Sunday against the Ravens. Johnson had one catch for 23 yards before leaving the game. In his absence, it's likely that Dontrelle Inman and Ladarius Green will see more targets in the middle of the field.
