Justin Johnson: Let go by Arizona

The Cardinals cut Johnson from the practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Cardinals cut tight end Evan Baylis from the active roster Tuesday and may look to keep him around on the practice squad, which would be a valid reason to let Johnson go. Johnson has yet to suit up in an NFL game since entering the league as an undrafted free agent last year.

Justin Johnson: Healthy moving forward

The Cardinals activated Johnson (undisclosed) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: It's still unclear exactly what Johnson was dealing with, but he's healthy enough to return to practice moving forward. The Cardinals currently have four healthy tight ends on the active roster, so Johnson isn't expected to be promoted unless there's an injury.

Justin Johnson: Suffers lower leg injury

Johnson was carted off the field during Thursday's practice due to a lower leg injury, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: The details and severity of Johnson's injury remain undisclosed. The undrafted rookie out of Mississippi State faces an uphill battle to earn a depth spot in Seattle's tight end room, and any time he misses to injury would further decrease his chances of making the 53-man roster.
