Johnson said he has been dealing with a high right ankle sprain over the last couple of weeks. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and the team has not listed his status for the Minnesota game.
Caldwell said earlier this week that he would "strongly" consider sitting Johnson this week to help him recover.
Running back Reggie Bush and tight end Joseph Fauria are also dealing with ankle injuries and have not practiced this week. Linebacker Travis Lewis has a quadricep injury and has also missed practice.
