Johnson was elevated to the 49ers' active roster Saturday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Jason Verrett (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, so Johnson will take his place as a reserve cornerback. Johnson has only logged 41 defensive snaps since the beginning of 2017, when he was a full-time starter for the Niners, so barring an injury, he'll likely stick to special teams.
Johnson was cut by the 49ers on Saturday.
Johnson will hope to latch on with another team, as he has accrued 73 games of NFL experience since being drafted by the 49ers with a fourth-round selection in 2014.

Johnson was a fourth-round pick by the 49ers in 2014 and stayed with the the team through 2017. He spent time with several franchises the next two seasons before returning to San Francisco in 2019. The veteran is primarily a special teams contributor, while also providing some depth at cornerback.

Johnson began the year with the Chargers before being released then signed by the team that drafted him in 2014.

Johnson signed with the 49ers on Wednesday.
Since starting for the 49ers in 2017, Johnson has been a bit of a traveler, making stops in Buffalo, San Francisco again and Los Angeles (Chargers). The 28-year-old's services are needed again, though, as Richard Sherman (hamstring) and K'Wuan Williams (concussion) both have uncertain statuses for Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. Johnson could have play a majority of snaps if neither of the aforementioned corners is active.
Johnson was waived by the 49ers on Monday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Johnson signed with the Chargers on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Johnson was a starter for the 49ers in 2017, but he spent last year with multiple teams and only suited up for one game for the Bills.

His first chance to play will be Sunday versus the Lions.
The 49ers released Johnson on Friday, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.
Johnson was a starter with the 49ers in 2017, but his second stint wasn't as favorable despite three interceptions in the preseason. The 49ers appear comfortable with Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett and Ahkello Witherspoon as their starting cornerbacks. Johnson is now free to choose his next team.
Johnson inked a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
The 28-year-old was let go by the Chiefs on May 20, and found his way back to the team that drafted him in the fourth round in 2014. Johnson only played one game with the Bills last season, but made 158 tackles and two interceptions over 63 games with San Francisco in the four years prior.

Johnson had a whirlwind of a season. He began the 2018 campaign as a starter on the Seahawks, but he suffered a hip injury and was eventually released with an injury settlement. He then spent time with the Bills, Browns and Cardinals before being dropped after Week 15. The Chiefs secondary definitely could use some reinforcements, so Johnson stands a solid chance of making the roster if he can stay healthy.
Johnson was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Johnson did not play a single game with Arizona after signing with the team on Nov. 27 and now has been released by the team. The fifth-year pro started 16 games with the 49ers in 2017 but has only appeared in one game with the Bills during the 2018 season. Johnson will look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
The Cardinals signed Johnson on Tuesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
In search of reliable cornerbacks, the Cardinals added Johnson to their roster in hopes of solidifying the position. Johnson started 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 and finished with a team-high 76 tackles. He will likely back up David Amerson, though he could quickly see more playing time if Amerson struggles.
Johnson worked out for the Browns on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

The 2014 fourth-round pick started all 16 games for San Francisco last season and was slated to start at cornerback for Seattle in 2018 before the hip injury hindered his season. It's unclear if the hip injury will allow him to play right away for Buffalo.
Johnson (hip) was released from injured reserve Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The Seahawks placed Johnson (hip) on injured reserve Saturday, NFL.com reports.
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.
