  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Held in check by Green Bay

    Johnson hauled in two of four targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 18-17 defeat to the Packers.

    Johnson logged five or fewer targets for the third game in a row despite the absence of Foster Moreau (ankle). Still, the starting tight end finished with fewer targets than only wideouts Chris Olave (11) and Michael Thomas (nine). He also lost out on the Saints' only red-zone scoring opportunity, as backup tight end Jimmy Graham instead caught an eight-yard touchdown pass on his lone target of the game in the first quarter. Johnson did log three targets after backup quarterback Jameis Winston stepped in for starter Derek Carr, who was forced out in the third quarter and did not return after suffering what's believed to be a right AC sprain, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Johnson's role and usage as TE1 don't figure to fluctuate much if Carr ends up missing time moving forward with this injury.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Logs two catches in Week 2

    Johnson hauled in two of three targets for 13 yards during Monday's 20-17 win against the Panthers.

    Johnson's first target didn't come until the Saints' final two-minute drive in the second quarter, and he recorded both of his catches in a span of eight plays midway through the third quarter. His moderate target share from quarterback Derek Carr is rather disappointing for the 6-foot-4 tight end, who was regarded as an up-and-coming fantasy product after he accumulated career-best numbers across 16 games in 2022 (42-508-7). However, Johnson still played starting reps Monday night, lining up on 81 percent of New Orleans' offensive snaps compared to 47 percent for Foster Moreau and 13 percent for Jimmy Graham. Johnson will look to carve out a more favorable target share versus the Packers on Sunday.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Returns to full participation

    Johnson (calf) was a full practice participant Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Johnson is set to play Monday night against Carolina, after catching three of five targets for 36 yards in a 16-15 win over the Titans last week. He finished the game with 75 percent snap share and 81 percent route share, unimpacted by the presence of offseason additions Foster Moreau and Jimmy Graham (12 combined routes, no targets).

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Dealing with calf issue

    Johnson was limited at Thursday's practice due to a calf injury, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Following the Saints' first official practice of Week 2, a new and potentially big injury has emerged. Johnson will have two more chances this week to put himself in a position to play Monday at Carolina. If Johnson ends up limited or out for that contest, Foster Moreau and Jimmy Graham are around to pick up the slack at tight end for New Orleans.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Nabs three catches Week 1

    Johnson compiled three receptions (on five targets) for 36 yards during Sunday's 16-15 win versus the Titans.

    Johnson's biggest impact Sunday came at the end of the first half when he caught a pass over the middle for a 27-yard catch-and-run to start New Orleans' two-minute drill. This drive ultimately stalled when quarterback Derek Carr threw an interception intended for the 6-foot-4 tight end that was undercut by Tennessee safety Amani Hooker. Johnson didn't manage to connect with Carr again throughout the remainder of Sunday's contest, and he ultimately finished with New Orleans' fourth-most targets behind starting wideouts Chris Olave (10), Michael Thomas (eight) and Rashid Shaheed (six). Johnson is coming off a career-best 2022 season, so he should maintain a significant role in New Orleans' passing game moving forward.
