Johnson was waived by the Colts on Saturday, Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports. The Colts signed Johnson when their receiving corps faced a slew of injuries midseason, and he flashed potential, including a Week 14 performance where he caught three passes for 105 yards and a score. However, the room is healthy now with the rookie additions of Michael Pittman and Dezmon Patmon, and Johnson lost the battle with Ashton Dulin for the No. 6 wideout job.
Johnson (undisclosed) suited up for Monday's practice, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. Johnson had missed the past week of practice with the undisclosed issue but was back without restrictions Monday. Now healthy, Johnson is battling for the No. 5 or No. 6 wide receiver spot against Daurice Fountain, Ashton Dulin and Chad Williams.

Johnson has been sidelined for a week with an undisclosed issue and it's not clear when he may return. Johnson is battling for the No. 5 or No. 6 wide receiver spot against Daurice Fountain, Ashton Dulin and Chad Williams. His missed time so far in camp isn't helping his case.
Johnson missed practice Saturday and has missed several practices this past week with an undisclosed issue, the Colts' official site reports. Johnson is battling for the No. 5 or No. 6 wide receiver spot against Daurice Fountain, Ashton Dulin and Chad Williams. His missed time so far in camp isn't helping his case.
Johnson re-signed with the Colts on Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. It's a one-year contract for Johnson, who wasn't extended a restricted free agent tender earlier this offseason. He made six starts for the Colts last year, climbing up the depth chart while Devin Funchess, T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell dealt with injuries. Johnson even had a 100-yard game Week 14 at Tampa Bay, but he'll likely be battling for a depth job whenever the Colts are able to resume training.
