Johnson signed with the Seahawks' practice squad Wednesday, Tim Weaver of USA Today reports. Johnson was cut from Seattle's practice squad a week ago to make room for running back BJ Emmons, but the team has opted to bring him back. The undrafted rookie has yet to appear in an NFL game.
Johnson was released from the Seahawks' practice squad Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. The rookie UDFA failed to make Seattle's season-opening roster and has now been let go from the practice squad. Johnson is still looking to make his NFL debut.
Johnson caught three of seven targets for 34 yards in Saturday's 30-3 preseason loss to the Broncos. Johnson now has 12 targets through the first two preseason games, and he has recorded seven receptions for 59 yards (4.9 YPT). With news that John Ursua is out for the year with a torn ACL, Johnson has a path to a spot on the 53-man roster if the Seahawks choose to keep six wide receivers.
Johnson has missed the last two practices due to a groin injury, but coach Pete Carroll expects Johnson to return next week, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Johnson can ill afford to miss extended time to injury considering he'll need to leapfrog a number of players on Seattle's wide receiver depth chart to have any chance at a roster spot. Luckily for Johnson, it sounds like his groin injury isn't expected to linger much longer, so the undrafted rookie out of South Dakota State should return to practice soon.
