The Colts have ruled DT Margus Hunt (knee) and S Clayton Geathers (neck, concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Each put in 1 limited practice this week, so we'll see if either is ready to return for Week 7.
Bengals DE Michael Johnson suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain on Sunday, according to Pro Football Talk. The injury is expected to keep him out 4 weeks, which would put Johnson back on the field just before the start of the regular season. It's tough to imagine him being ready to start at that point. We'll see how the Bengals handle the DE spot opposite Carlos Dunlap. The injury looks particularly discouraging after a Week 1 ankle sprain seemed to derail Johnson's 2014 season in Tampa.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that DE Michael Johnson has reached a deal with the Bengals. The reported 4-year contract returns Johnson to the team that drafted him back in 2009. After 5 years in Cincinnati, Johnson signed for big money with Tampa Bay last offseason as a free agent. Then he sprained an ankle in Week 1 and never seemed to get on track. If he can stay healthy, Johnson should boost a Bengals pass rush that Pro Football Focus graded worst in the league last year but 20th in 2013 (with Johnson aboard). Expect Johnson to win back his starting right DE job and present some solid IDP value. Dynasty IDP owners waiting for a DE Margus Hunt breakthrough will apparently have to keep waiting.
