THEIR TIME IS NOW

Johnson, Gonzalez Ready for first NFL Action
Times changes fast in the NFL.
One month, a guy’s an unknown . . .
The next, he’s an NFL starter.
And around the Colts, a player – even a young player – has to be ready whenever he is needed, and whenever opportunities arise.
Such is the case for Ed Johnson, a defensive tackle for the Colts.
When training camp began six weeks ago, he was an unknown, un-drafted free agent trying to make an NFL team. Now, he’s a starting defensive tackle for the team that won the Super Bowl following last season. ...
Well, hopefully Johnson will be the stud DT the team needs. He's 6'2" and 296 lbs. He's the second biggest DT on the depth chart, after Quinn Pitcock (6'2" 299) who's the third string guy. I haven't caught much of the pre-season, and what I have, I watched the LBs and DBs. Can anyone shed some light on the Big Johnson?
