Johnson (shoulder) is "managing things" with regard to a shoulder injury that forced him to exit Sunday's win over the Jets, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
Johnson appears to have aggravated a minor shoulder injury, and should be considered a question mark for a Week 12 game against the Jaguars following the Bills' bye. The rookie fourth-round pick has worked through lingering shoulder injuries throughout the entire season, and has seen his snap count limited as a result.
Johnson is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Jets due to a shoulder injury.
Johnson played well prior to exiting Sunday's game, and served a key role in holding the Jets' offense to only three points during the first half. If the rookie is unable to return, expect Lafayette Pitts to serve as the primary backup to starter Tre'Davious White.
Johnson logged seven total tackles and one tackle for a loss during Sunday's 37-5 loss to the Colts.
Johnson tied with Tremaine Edmunds as the team's leader in tackles Week 7. The rookie fourth-round pick failed to assist Buffalo's defense in containing Indianapolis' red zone attack, allowing quarterback Andrew Luck to sling four touchdowns without an interception. Johnson will face another stout passing offense against the Patriots on Monday.
It looks like the rookie might be able to go Sunday at Minnesota after missing the Week 2 loss to the Chargers. Johnson won't start, but his depth is needed given the Bills' banged-up secondary coupled with the loss of Vontae Davis, who decided last week he doesn't want to continue playing football.
Johnson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Johnson continues to nurse a shoulder injury, which he suffered in Week 1. The rookie fourth-rounder's presence would be of substantial help to a Bills secondary now without Vontae Davis, but it remains to be seen whether Johnson will be able to suit up Sunday against the Vikings.
