Coach Bill O'Brien was muted when asked the reason Johnson was kept out of practice.
O'Brien added that the 2019 second-round pick would play in Thursday's preseason opener versus the Packers.
Johnson was kicked out of Monday's practice after a big hit on Green Bay tight end Jace Sternberger, who got his helmet knocked off on the play. Johnson then stood and posed over the opponent after the play. A scuffle ensued. Luckily Sternberger wasn't seriously injured on the practice hit.
