Visiting San Francisco
The 49ers are hosting Johnson for a visit, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Johnson spent time on Jacksonville's practice squad during the first week of the 2021 season, and he now may get a chance to compete for a role with the 49ers. In San Francisco, Raheem Mostert (knee) has been lost for the season, while Trey Sermon (concussion), Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) and JaMycal Hasty (ankle) are all dealing with injuries of their own. Johnson's dual-threat skill set therefore could be valuable to the 49ers, who also are bringing in Lamar Miller for a tryout.
