  • Commanders' Danny Johnson: Available for Week 1

    Johnson (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Commanders' injury report Wednesday.

    Johnson strained his rotator cuff after being slammed to the ground by Ravens tight end Mark Andrews during a joint practice session in training camp. He registered career highs in tackles (29) and pass deflections (nine) in 11 games last season and will provide key depth for a secondary headlined by Kendall Fuller, Emmanuel Forbes, Darrick Forrest and Kamren Curl.

  • Commanders' Danny Johnson: Career year in 2022

    Johnson appeared in 11 games (four starts) during the 2022 season and recorded 29 tackles (20 solo), including one sack, and an interception.

    Johnson had the most efficient season of his career despite starting the year off on the practice squad. The 27-year-old set a new career high in tackles while also registering the first sack and interception in his five years as a pro. Johnson's role increased as the season went on, as nearly two-thirds of his playing time came during the last four weeks of the season.
