Saints TE Juwan Johnson Misses Practice on Thursday


December 1, 2022

New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) did not participate in team practice on Thursday, per ESPN’s Katherine Terrell.

This is a new one. Johnson may have suffered the injury in Sunday’s loss to the 49ers which would explain playing just 27 snaps and seeing two targets. If he is unable to go, expect to see some Adam Trautman and a whole lot of Taysom Hill in his spot this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If the Saints want to get back into the NFC South race, this would be their chance in a primetime matchup against the division leaders.

In 2022, Johnson has made 31 receptions on 49 targets for 349 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games. Keep an eye out for the 26-year-old’s practice status on Friday.
