Juwan Johnson Expected back Week 8
Saints head coach Dennis Allen said he hopes to have Johnson (calf) back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Colts, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Johnson has missed the Saints' last four games after suffering the calf injury during pregame warmups ahead of the team's Week 4 loss to the Buccaneers. While he's been sidelined, the Saints have rotated Foster Moreau, Taysom Hill and Jimmy Graham at tight end, but Johnson will most likely settle in atop the depth chart once healthy. Considering Johnson hasn't practiced in any capacity since suffering the injury, the Saints may want to see him turn in a full session or two before clearing him to play at Indianapolis.
