Catches three passes in finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Johnson gathered in all three targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 48-17 win versus the Falcons.

Johnson led the Saints' tight ends in receiving yards for the third week in a row, and he finished with 15 catches (on 22 targets) for 178 yards and two touchdowns over that span. This marks an encourgaing ending to what was a rather up-and-down campaign for the 27-year-old tight end. Across 13 games this season, Johnson tallied 37 receptions (on 59 targets) for 368 yards and four touchdowns, marking a slight downtick from his career-best 2022 season.

Suiting up Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Johnson (chest) is active for Sunday's game versus the Falcons.

Johnson spent some time on the sideline last Sunday in Tampa Bay due to a shoulder injury but was able to finish the contest. As the Saints kicked off Week 18 prep, he was listed as a non-participant due to a chest issue Wednesday, but he capped it with back-to-back limited sessions before entering the weekend as questionable. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Sunday morning that Johnson was slated to suit up, which has been confirmed upon the team posting its list of inactives. Johnson will look to keep up his recent hot streak against an Atlanta defense that has given up the sixth-most catches (90) to opposing tight ends in 16 games this season.

On track to play

Johnson (chest), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Johnson carries an injury designation into the regular-season finale after he sat out practice Wednesday before closing Week 18 prep with a pair of limited sessions. Though he sustained the chest injury in last week's 23-13 win over the Buccaneers, Johnson was able to return to the contest and finished with his best stat line of the season, as he hauled in eight of 12 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown. Assuming he's officially cleared ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Johnson could remain a prominent part of the passing attack with receiver Michael Thomas (knee) stuck on injured reserve and with wideout A.T. Perry (illness) and running back Alvin Kamara (ankle) both listed as questionable but uncertain to play.

Listed as questionable

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Johnson (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Johnson returned to the Week 17 win over Tampa Bay after injuring his chest in the first half, ultimately finishing with season highs for yards (90), targets (12) and catches (eight) while scoring a TD for the third straight games. The Saints listed him as a non-participant Wednesday and then a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, with Johnson seemingly on the right track to play ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Taysom Hill and Foster Moreau will take on more snaps at tight end if Johnson unexpectedly can't go.

Manages limited practice Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-04

Johnson (chest) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

Johnson followed up Wednesday's absence from practice with some activity one day later, signifying progress through his current chest issue. He has one more session Friday to prove his health before the Saints potentially tag him with a designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Falcons. If do-it-all running back Alvin Kamara (ankle) sits out this weekend, an active Johnson could benefit from the trickle-down effect of the former's 6.6 targets per game being freed up.

Tending to chest issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Johnson was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a chest injury.

Johnson sat out Weeks 4-7 due to a calf issue and has dealt with quad and shoulder concerns for about the last month. Despite the recent injuries, he's suited up in all six games since the Saints' Week 11 bye, recording a 20-231-3 line on 34 targets during that span. It's unclear if the current injury is threatening his availability for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, but his activity level, or lack thereof, in the coming days could be telling for his Week 18 status.

Season-best performance in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Johnson brought in eight of 12 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 23-13 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Johnson was the surprise leader in receptions, receiving yards and targets for the Saints, posting season bests across all three categories. The fourth-year pro has now scored in three straight contests as well, and he could play a key role again in a Week 18 divisional clash against a Falcons team that's given up plenty of production to tight ends all season.

Back in Sunday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Johnson (shoulder) has returned to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Katherine Terrell of reports.

Johnson had been forced out of the contest with a shoulder issue, but the tight end will resume action and look to build off the 3/19/1 receiving line he had logged prior to his exit.

Hurts shoulder Sunday

Johnson was forced out of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a shoulder injury, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Prior to his departure from the contest, Johnson caught all three of his targets for 19 yards and a TD. In his absence, Taysom Hill, Foster Moreau and Jimmy Graham are available to handle the Saints' tight end reps.
