Tomlin said Johnson "responded appropriately" to being benched in the first half, suggesting that the receiver won't see a role reduction Week 15 in Cincinnati. However, if Johnson fails to show improvement with regard to the drops, he could end up losing snaps to Chase Claypool, who has made a strong impression as a rookie.
