Johnson spent most of the 2017 season on the Colts' practice squad, only being lifted for four games and logging two tackles in that span. The 25-year-old will look for a reserve role in 2018, but his chances narrowed when the Colts selected Kemoko Turay (knee) in the second round of this year's draft.
