Johnson is a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Johnson's absence will leave just four active wide receivers for the Colts. The 24-year-old may not have been ready for action right away, however, as he was traded to the Colts just eight days ago and may not fully know the playbook yet.
Traded from Philadelphia to Seattle in the offseason, Johnson found himself on the roster bubble with the Seahawks. He could conceivably work his way up to fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart in Indianapolis, where injuries and a general lack of talent give him a real chance to stick around this season. Johnson recently dealt with a hip injury, but he made it back to play 14 snaps in Seattle's preseason finale against Oakland.
The Eagles agreed Wednesday to trade Johnson and a future fifth-round draft pick to the Seahawks in exchange for defensive end Michael Bennett and a future seventh-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Undrafted in 2016, Johnson spent part of his rookie season on the Eagles' practice squad and was active for 10 games in 2017. The speedy wideout caught only five passes across 146 offensive snaps last season, but he may have a larger opportunity in Seattle, where the team seemingly is prepared to let Paul Richardson walk in free agency. The trade won't become official until March 14 when the new league year opens. Once that happens, Johnson could enter the mix for the third or fourth wideout spot, depending on the Seahawks' other moves this offseason.
