“I’m back on track, and I’m ready to go,” said Johnson.
Johnson had been limited in practice due to a shoulder injury he suffered in Pittsburgh’s preseason finale. He was upgraded to a full session on Friday. However, Johnson alluded to the issue being a matter of pain tolerance and should still see his usual complement of snaps.
The 26-year-old led the Steelers with 107 catches, 1,161 yards, and eight touchdowns last season and was subsequently rewarded with a two-year, $36.71 million extension.
Going up against an explosive Bengals offense, the Steelers will likely find themselves playing catchup much of the afternoon, rendering Johnson a solid fantasy option, particularly in PPR formats.
FanDuel Sportsbook has Pittsburgh as +6.5 road underdogs on the spread and +220 on the moneyline.
