Johnson finished his rookie season with 41 tackles and seven passes defensed over 14 games in 2019.
Johnson was Houston's second-round draft pick in 2019 and immediately stepped into a significant role. Unfortunately, as a rookie cornerback in the NFL, he did not deliver on the potential of a 54th-overall pick. The Texans believe Johnson will have a good future, per Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com, but he was ranked last at his position by Pro Football Focus. With a few cornerbacks entering free agency or not being brought back, Johnson could move up the depth chart and gain a larger role in 2020, although the Texans are expected to add at least one high-profile, free-agent defensive back.

Johnson sat out Week 12 against the Colts after injuring his ankle the previous week against the Ravens. The rookie cornerback was a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday but is trending in the right direction.
Johnson (ankle) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Colts.
After incurring an ankle injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Johnson was unable to practice all week and won't suit up for the divisional clash.

Johnson (foot) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens.
It's unclear how Johnson suffered the injury, but he was forced to leave the game in the third quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for Gareon Conley and Keion Crossen to see an increase in depth snaps.
Johnson did not appear on Wednesday's edition of the Week 11 injury report after passing a baseline neurological exam.
Since suffering a concussion during Week 8's win over Oakland, Johnson has passed every phase of the NFL's concussion protocol, resulting in his omission from Wednesday's injury report for Week 11. The 24-year-old cornerback is on track to face Baltimore on Sunday.

Johnson (groin) is active for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.
The rookie second-round pick will line up as the Texans' No. 2 corner against a fierce pass attack. Matt Ryan has thrown for at least 300 yards in each game this year, so Johnson will likely look to contain Mohamed Sanu in this contest.
Johnson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.
This injury just popped up on Friday's practice report. Groin injuries can be tricky to overcome on short notice, so Johnson appears to be a true game-time decision. The final verdict will be revealed with the inactives at 11:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.
