Colts' Marcus Johnson: Has four receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: No impact in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Takes advantage of opportunity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Just one reception but 55 snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Moves up from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marcus Johnson: Joins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marcus Johnson: Gets injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marcus Johnson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marcus Johnson: Waived/injured by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: First action since ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Officially signed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Receives tender from Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Receives clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) announced via Twitter he received medical clearance from ankle surgery he underwent in October.

Johnson tore a ligament in his right ankle Week 6 against the Jets and subsequently underwent surgery. The 24-year-old had six catches for 102 yards and a touchdown in five games last season and is set to to be an exclusive rights free agent with the Colts.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Slated for ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, will undergo surgery on a torn ligament in his right ankle, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Johnson's role steadily increased in the Colts' passing attack as injuries piled up within the receiving corps, culminating with his first career touchdown Sunday against the Jets. During that contest, though, he suffered a serious ankle injury that may end his season. To account for the lingering injuries to T.Y. Hilton (hamstring), Ryan Grant (ankle) and Jack Doyle (hip), the Colts signed veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman on Tuesday.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

It's another injury for the Colts wide receiver unit. Ryan Grant (ankle) was also forced out of Sunday's loss to the Jets. With T.Y. Hilton still nursing a hamstring injury, Indianapolis is dealing with serious depth issues at wide receiver. Now that Johnson's season is likely over, the Colts elected to bring in free agent Dontrelle Inman on Tuesday, which should give them much-needed stability at the position given his four years of NFL experience, most of which came with the Chargers.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Hurts ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the Jets, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan reports.

Johnson had his best game of the season Sunday, catching two balls for 52 yards and his first NFL touchdown. Both he and Ryan Grant (ankle) left the game early. Those injuries, coupled with T.Y. Hilton's ongoing hamstring injury, leave the Colts thin at wide receiver.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Scores TD in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had two receptions on three targets for 52 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown, in Sunday's loss at the Jets.

Johnson played 34 of the offense's 69 snaps, getting more playing time when Ryan Grant left with an ankle injury. Johnson is fourth on the depth chart, but could get more playing time next week if T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) remains out and Grant is also sidelined.

Colts' Marcus Johnson: Two receptions Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had two receptions for 26 yards on two targets in Thursday's loss at New England.

Both of Johnson's receptions came late in the fourth quarter after Zach Pascal struggled. The Colts may have used him anyway as they were behind in in passing situations, but Johnson has a chance to pass Pascal on the depth chart.
