Spends season on injured reserve

Johnson (shoulder) spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve and did not appear in any games.

Analysis: The Packers waived an injured Johnson last August, but he did not receive any interest from other teams and instead spent the season on injured reserve. It remains to be seen if he'll return to Green Bay or look for an opportunity with another team during the offseason.

Lands on IR

Johnson (shoulder) has reverted to the Packers' injured reserve, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Johnson was originally waived with an injury settlement, but there were not any takers on the wire. Thus, he is set to watch the season from the sidelines unless both he and the Packers can come to terms on an injury settlement.

Waived/injured by Green Bay

Johnson (shoulder) was waived/injured by the Packers on Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It remains unknown how Johnson suffered his shoulder injury, but he doesn't appear to be facing a long-term recovery. The 2015 sixth-round pick is a candidate to receive an injury settlement, which would allow him to search for a job elsewhere in the league when back to full health.

Back at practice

Johnson (groin) returned to practice Sunday, Ryan Wing of Fox 11 reports.

Analysis: Johnson missed about a week of action because of his injury, but he was able to get back on the field Sunday. Top fullback Danny Vitale (calf) remains sidelined, but another fullback -- Tommy Bohanon -- was added to the mix, so the two figure to split the fullback duties at practice until Vitale is ready to get back on the field.

Analysis: With Danny Vitale (calf) also sidelined due to injury, Green Bay elected to ink another fullback to the 90-man roster in the form of Tommy Bohanon. Johnson faces an uphill battle to earn a spot on the active roster, and will work to return to practice as soon as possible.
