Saints TE Juwan Johnson Limited in Practice on Thursday


January 5

New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson (quad) was limited in team practice on Thursday, per Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football.

Johnson was missing from practice on Wednesday, so seeing him limited today is a promising sign for his potential availability on Sunday. There’s a possibility that Johnson is the team’s starting tight end next season after having a productive 2022. He’s been a vital red zone target within the offense, catching seven touchdown passes so far this season, good for third-most among tight ends in the NFL.

In 2022, Johnson has made 41 receptions on 64 targets for 487 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games. If Johnson can’t play on Sunday, expect Adam Trautman to see most of the snaps at tight end against the Panthers.
