Johnson officially signed his tender with the Colts on Monday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. The Texas product was only able to suit up in five games last season, catching six of his eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. Johnson also underwent ankle surgery at the end of 2018 but was medically cleared to participate in offseason workouts on Feb. 26.
The Colts extended a tender to Johnson on Friday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. The Texas product was only able to suit up in five games last season, and caught six of eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. It should be noted that Johnson received medical clearance following ankle surgery, so he should be a full-go this offseason.
Johnson (ankle) announced via Twitter he received medical clearance from ankle surgery he underwent in October. Johnson tore a ligament in his right ankle Week 6 against the Jets and subsequently underwent surgery. The 24-year-old had six catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in five games last season and is set to to be an exclusive rights free agent with the Colts.
Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, will undergo surgery on a torn ligament in his right ankle, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. Johnson's role steadily increased in the Colts' passing attack as injuries piled up within the receiving corps, culminating with his first career touchdown Sunday against the Jets. During that contest, though, he suffered a serious ankle injury that may end his season. To account for the lingering injuries to T.Y. Hilton (hamstring), Ryan Grant (ankle) and Jack Doyle (hip), the Colts signed veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman on Tuesday.
Johnson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports. It's another injury for the Colts wide receiver unit. Ryan Grant (ankle) was also forced out of Sunday's loss to the Jets. With T.Y. Hilton still nursing a hamstring injury, Indianapolis is dealing with serious depth issues at wide receiver. Now that Johnson's season is likely over, the Colts elected to bring in free agent Dontrelle Inman on Tuesday, which should give them much-needed stability at the position given his four years of NFL experience, most of which came with the Chargers.
