Johnson (knee) won't carry an injury designation in Sunday's game against the Colts.
Johnson suffered a bruised knee in Monday's loss to the Steelers and was a limited participant in practice this week. The 25-year-old's 2017 season has been marred by injuries and sub-par performance, and is currently graded as the NFL's second-worst cornerback through Week 16, per Pro Football Focus.

Regardless, this latest issue only adds to Johnson's brutal third season. He's already missed three games earlier with a different knee issue, has been knocked out of another with a concussion, and currently grades out as Pro Football Focus' second-last cornerback (out of 121 qualified players) across the 10 games he's been healthy for.
