Johnson has made the regular-season roster at tight end, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Johnson figures to have some sort of role as a pass-catching tight end throughout the year. However, with top receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) set to miss the first six weeks of the season and both Adam Trautman (ankle) and Nick Vannett (knee) bouncing back from minor injuries, Johnson could have a chance to show what he can do in an expanded role as soon as Week 1.
