Johnson caught three of five targets for 52 yards against Jacksonville on Sunday. Johnson is somewhat convincing in his role as a downfield specialist for the Titans, and Sunday he provided meaningful production as they played without Julio Jones (hamstring). The Titans might need him to stretch the field again against Buffalo in Week 6 if Jones isn't able to return by then, but if Jones is active then Johnson is unlikely to draw more than a handful of snaps off the bench. Sufficient as he might be in his specialist role, Johnson probably can't take on much volume as a receiver.
Johnson (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Johnson missed the first four games of the season due to an undisclosed injury but has been practicing for two weeks. He'll provide the Titans with additional depth at wide receiver behind A.J. Brown while Julio Jones (hamstring) is sidelined and could see immediate involvement in the team's passing attack Sunday against the Jaguars.
The Titans designated Johnson (undisclosed) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Johnson spent the minimum three weeks on IR, and he'll now have three weeks to be added to the 53-man roster. If he isn't activated by the conclusion of the 21-day evaluation window, he'll head back to IR for the remainder of the season. The statuses of wideouts Julio Jones (leg) and A.J. Brown (hamstring) remain in question Week 4 against the Jets, so Johnson could have a chance to make an immediate impact if he's cleared to play Sunday. The 27-year-old appeared in 11 games for the Colts last year and caught 14 passes for 255 yards.
Johnson (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Johnson earned a spot on Tennessee's initial 53-man roster but will now head to injured reserve with the unspecified injury. The 27-year-old will be sidelined for at least the first three games of the season.
Johnson continues to stand out with his performance in training camp and caught a number of passes Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Both Julio Jones (undisclosed) and A.J. Brown were absent from the practice, but Johnson nevertheless impressed with multiple receptions and his work after the catch. Noted as an early standout in camp, Johnson has carried his strong play forward and is gaining positive attention from the coaching staff. Josh Reynolds figures to serve as the team's third receiver behind Brown and Jones, though it appears Johnson is pushing for a fairly significant role in the offense.
