Johnson re-signed with the Colts on Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
It's a one-year contract for Johnson, who wasn't extended a restricted free agent tender earlier this offseason. He made six starts for the Colts last year, climbing up the depth chart while Devin Funchess, T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell dealt with injuries. Johnson even had a 100-yard game Week 14 at Tampa Bay, but he'll likely be battling for a depth job whenever the Colts are able to resume training.
The Colts do not intend to extend a contract tender to Johnson, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
As a result, Johnson will become an unrestricted free agent March 18, rather than a restricted free agent. After working his way up from the practice squad last November, Johnson hauled in 17 passes for 277 yards and two scores across eight contests. Most notably, the 25-year-old surpassed 100 receiving yards Week 14 against the Buccaneers while also recording a touchdown. Given his youth and occasional flashes, Johnson shouldn't have much difficulty catching on as a depth or developmental option with another club if he indeed leaves Indianapolis.
Johnson recorded 17 receptions for 277 yards and two touchdowns over eight games in 2019.
Johnson was activated from the practice squad in November after a slew of injuries to the Colts' wide receivers, and the 25-year-old more than doubled his career totals in all major categories over the course of eight games. His work as a consistent starter is one of the main reasons for his success. Johnson will be a restricted free agent in March, and if he stays in Indianapolis, he projects as a depth option.
Johnson had one reception for two yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Johnson started next to T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal in a three-receiver set and played on 46 of the offense's 64 snaps. However, he didn't produce much as the Colts didn't need to throw the ball after amassing a large early lead through special teams and with the running game. He should remain in the mix in the passing game next week against Jacksonville.
Johnson caught two of four targets for 37 yards in Monday night's 34-7 loss to the Saints.
Johnson came back to earth after exploding for 105 yards and a touchdown his last time out. Like Week 14, however, he again hauled in a 20-yard reception Monday, showing his big-play ability. With top wideout T.Y. Hilton back in the lineup, Johnson will have a smaller workload the final two weeks of the season, but he at least has done enough lately to remain in the mix.
Johnson caught three of seven targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-35 loss to Tampa Bay.
Johnson scored a 46-yard touchdown on Indianapolis' first drive and later added a 50-yard reception. If T.Y. Hilton (calf) remains out against the Saints in Week 15, Johnson should continue to serve as Indianapolis' big-play threat. Johnson had more receiving yards in this one (105) than he did all season coming in (102).
Johnson had four receptions for 55 yards on six targets in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.
Johnson played on 65 of the offense's 70 snaps as he was pressed into a larger role after Chester Rogers was lost to a knee injury. With Rogers placed on IR, Johnson could be a large factor in the offense again next week in an enticing matchup at Tamp Bay. However, he could also move to a reserve role if T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) can return from injury.
Johnson failed to catch his only target during Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Texans.
Johnson wasn't able to follow up his Week 11 performance, during which he racked up 38 yards and a score, against the Texans on Thursday. His only target came in the form of a bomb downfield, but Johnson didn't appear to be on the same page as quarterback Jacoby Brissett. He's set to reprise his usual role as a depth wideout and special-teams contributor Week 13 versus the Titans.
Johnson hauled in all four of his targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 11 win over the Jaguars.
Johnson hauled in the team's lone score through the air on a one-yard reception midway through the third quarter. Earlier that drive, he snagged a 17-yard pass down the left side of the field for his longest reception of the day. Johnson has seen an increased role in the offensive gameplan with T.Y. Hilton (calf), Parris Campbell (hand) and Devin Funchess (collarbone) all sidelined. Given the team's quick turnaround for their Week 12 matchup against the Texans on Thursday, Johnson could be in for a large role once again.
Johnson had one reception for nine yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to Miami. He played on 55 of the offense's 69 snaps.
While Johnson had just one catch, it's notable that he got more playing time that Chester Rogers (34 snaps). He could emerge with a larger role next week if T.Y. Hilton remains out with a thigh injury and Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell are not able to return from injuries.
Johnson was signed to the Colts' 53-man roster Saturday.
Johnson will take the roster spot of disappointing wide receiver Deon Cain, who was waived in a corresponding move. It's unlikely Johnson makes much of an immediate impact, but the Colts will be without two of their key pass catchers in T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand), making the fourth-year wideout No. 4 on the team's depth chart.
Johnson (concussion) signed with the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.
Johnson was waived/injured by the the Colts at roster cutdowns after suffering the concussion, reverted to injured reserve and eventually reached an injury settlement to return to free agency. The 25-year-old appeared in five games with Indianapolis last season, catching six of eight targets for 102 yards and one touchdown.
The Colts waived Johnson (concussion) from IR with an injury settlement Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Johnson reverted to IR on Sept. 1 after being waived/injured by the Colts and is now free to sign elsewhere in the league when fully healthy. The 25-year-old wideout offers upside as a depth receiver and special-teams contributor.
Johnson (concussion) went unclaimed on waivers and was placed on the Colts' injured reserve Sunday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Johnson suffered the concussion in the Colts' preseason finale. It seems that the 25-year-old will remain on injured reserve for the entire 2019 season unless both parties can reach an injury settlement.
Johnson (concussion) was waived/injured by the Colts on Saturday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Johnson was competing for a role contributing on special teams and providing depth at receiver before suffering a concussion in the Colts' preseason finale. Assuming he clears waivers, he will revert to the team's injured reserve. He would then remain there for the rest of the season unless both parties reach an injury settlement.
Johnson won't return to Thursday's preseason matchup with the Bengals due to a concussion, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Johnson's injury leaves the Colts with 12 healthy receivers. It's unclear how long the 25-year-old will be sidelined or how it will affect the Colts' decisions when the deadline for roster cuts arrives.
Johnson left Thursday's preseason contest against Cincinnati to be evaluated for a concussion, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
After colliding with a Bengals defensive back, Johnson had to take his time before getting back up. The 25-year-old had finally gotten back to full speed at the start of preseason after undergoing offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right ankle. Johnson appeared in five games last season with the Colts, catching six passes for 102 yards and a touchdown on eight targets.
Johnson had two receptions for 27 yards on six targets in Thursday's preseason loss at Buffalo.
Johnson underwent offseason surgery on a torn ligament in his right ankle, an injury that ended his 2018 season in October. Therefore, it was good to see him back to full speed in a game. He played in five games last season, catching six of his eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. However, he's in a battle for a reserve receiver role in camp and may not make the final roster.
Johnson officially signed his tender with the Colts on Monday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.
The Texas product was only able to suit up in five games last season, catching six of his eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. Johnson also underwent ankle surgery at the end of 2018 but was medically cleared to participate in offseason workouts on Feb. 26.
The Colts extended a tender to Johnson on Friday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
The Texas product was only able to suit up in five games last season, and caught six of eight targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. It should be noted that Johnson received medical clearance following ankle surgery, so he should be a full-go this offseason.
