The Colts placed Johnson (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports. Johnson was relatively quiet this preseason, so he was on track for a reserve role once again. Instead, he'll likely watch the season from home.
Johnson (back) recorded one tackle in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers. Johnson had been nursing a back injury for a couple weeks, but he was deemed healthy enough to return to the field Saturday. He played in nearly half of the team's snaps on defense, so it looks like Johnson is back to 100 percent.
Johnson was promoted to the Colts' active roster Tuesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. Johnson has spent the past month on the Colts' practice squad after spending previous stints with the Jets and Patriots. Look for the Johnson to play in a reserve role on the defensive line behind starter Margus Hunt.
The Patriots opted to waive Johnson on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports. The decision to waive Johnson comes a day after he received his first start of the year. The 23-year-old recorded two tackles in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He is considered a strong candidate to return to the team's practice squad.
Johnson was promoted to New England's active roster on Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports. Johnson had been on the Patriots' practice squad for the first five weeks of the season. He'll provide depth along the defensive line and help out with special teams.
