Johnson is signing with the Steelers' practice squad Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Johnson was selected in the sixth round of the 2022 Draft by the Eagles, but he was unable to keep a sport there this season, after missing much of training camp due to undergoing an appendectomy. He did play 16 games with Philadelphia last season, mostly contributing on special teams and recording eight tackles.

Joins Birds' practice squad

Philadelphia signed Johnson (appendix) to its practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Johnson missed the end of the Eagles' training camp due to an appendectomy and subsequently didn't make the 53-man roster, but he's now at least back in the fold. He contributed more on special teams than on defense during his rookie season, so if he's to be elevated to the active roster, it will likely be to contribute on that front.

Doesn't make team

Johnson (appendix) was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Johnson missed the end of training camp due to an appendectomy, which may have been a factor in him missing out on a roster spot. The 25-year-old was a sixth-round pick by Philadelphia in the 2022 Draft and played in 16 games with the team as a rookie, featuring mostly on special teams. Zangaro reports that the Eagles would like to have Johnson back as a member of their practice squad.

Undergoes appendectomy

Johnson missed practice Saturday after undergoing an appendectomy, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

This news helps explain why Johnson wasn't present for Thursday's preseason tie with Cleveland,. The second-year pro is competing for a spot on the Eagles' initial 53-man roster, so this setback may hurt his chances.
