Johnson was originally deemed questionable for Week 1, but it appears the injury is more serious than originally thought. He was projected to start at cornerback this season, so it is a big loss for the Seahawks out of the gate. Akeem King was subsequently promoted from the practice squad to help provide depth at the position. Neiko Thorpe, Justin Coleman, and Tre Flowers are all options to see increased roles as a result.
Johnson has yet to practice this week, but with the Seahawks lacking reliable options in their secondary, they will hope that the 26-year-old cornerback can still go Sunday. If Johnson is ultimately forced to sit out, Neiko Thorpe figures to see an expanded role on the back end of Seattle's defense.
Johnson (foot) made one solo tackle in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Johnson's the wildcard in the competition for the starting right cornerback position, battling against veteran Byron Maxwell and rookie Tre Flowers. It's Johnson's first year in Seattle after spending four with the 49ers, where he was a starter in 2017 and recorded 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and one pick-six.
Johnson (foot) passed his physical Saturday per NFL Media transaction log.
Johnson was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp after breaking his foot during minicamp last month. The injury required surgery, but his successful physical indicates he could be in line to return to practice relatively soon. He figures to compete with Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a role in the Seahawks' secondary.
Johnson (foot) was placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic Seattle reports.
Johnson broke his foot during minicamp last month and underwent surgery to repair the injury. While he doesn't have a clear return timetable, it's possible he could return during camp and challenge Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a primary role in the secondary.
