The Indianapolis Colts waive NT Ed Johnson

The Colts have waived NT Ed Johnson after he was arrested for marijuana possession after a traffic stop early this week.  Johnson had 7 tackles against the Bears last Sunday Night.  Johnson started for the Colts as an undrafted rookie last season playing in all 16 games for them and compiling 41 tackles and sacking the opposing QB once.  Johnson will be replaced in the starting lineup by Raheem Brock who is only 6’4″, 274 pounds so teams playing against the Colts will likely now try to run up the middle more often.  Brock had 2 tackles against the Bears last Sunday Night.  Brock has played in 89 games (81 starts) in his NFL career and he has made 227 tackles, has 21.5 sacks and he has defensed 15 passes.  Johnson’s actions and departure earlier this week will hurt the Colts’ Defense the rest of the season.
