Collin Johnson: Registers first career NFL catch

Johnson caught his only target for a 14-yard gain during Sunday's 27-20 win against the Colts.

Analysis: The rookie wideout from Texas was one of the many beneficiaries to Gardner Minshew's uber-efficient afternoon, as he was among 10 Jaguars players to catch at least one pass while Minshew completed 19-of-20 attempts. Johnson saw under 20 percent of the offensive snaps in his debut, as Keelan Cole, D.J. Chark, and fellow rookie Laviska Shenault were the only Jaguars receivers to attract more than one target. Heading into a Week 2 matchup against the Titans, Johnson is expected to remain a depth wide receiver option for the so far run-heavy Jaguars offense.

Collin Johnson: Secures roster spot

Johnson was the star of Saturday's scrimmage and appears to have locked down a spot on the regular-season roster, according to Hays Carlyon of 1010 XL.

Analysis: Johnson got most of his work with the backups but also caught a pass from Minshew, taking advantage of the opportunity with both Dede Westbrook (shoulder) and Laviska Shenault (undisclosed) held out of the scrimmage. It won't be easy for the rookie fifth-round pick to earn snaps amidst a receiver group that also has DJ Chark, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole, but it does seem Johnson will be part of the team, at the very least. Given the expectation of a rebuilding season, there's a good chance the Jags will want to see more from Shenault and Johnson before the year is done.
