Johnson had seven tackles in TFC's 1-0 victory over DC.

The Canadian international was a force in the middle of the park and is developing a formidable partnership with long-time friend Michael Bradley.

Johnson assisted on the equalizing goal in the 2-2 draw against New York City on Sunday.

After struggling in 2015 with Portland, scoring no goals and having no assists, Johnson is looking to bounce back this season with Toronto. While he plays more of a holding midfield role, he still has plenty of weapons around him like Sebastian Giovinco, Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson was traded to Toronto FC on Friday.

Johnson has been a perennial starter for both the Timbers and Real Salt Lake over the past seven seasons, and that should continue in Toronto. Although, he may take a backseat to Michael Bradley which doesn't project well for production in 2016, but there are certainly many assist opportunities to go around on a team which possesses Sebastian Giovinco.

Johnson (leg) hopes to rejoin training in the near future, but he's currently without a firm timetable for a return to match-play, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson hasn't played since Sept. 20 as he's currently battling a leg injury. He tends to start when healthy, so Jack Jewsbury is a viable candidate for unexpected minutes while Johnson continues to recover.

Johnson is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Sounders due to soreness in his leg, Dan Itel of reports.

Johnson's injury situation and Diego Chara's suspension will open up the door for Jack Jewsbury and George Fochive to likely enter the starting XI. However, Johnson and Chara will be aiming to return Sept. 9 when the Timbers host Sporting Kansas City.

Johnson (suspension) is eligible to return Sunday against the Earthquakes.

Johnson received a red card last week which confined him to the sidelines of Saturdayís game against FC Dallas. He made seven starts in Portlandís previous nine MLS games, so Johnson has a good chance of immediately rejoining the starting XI on Sunday.

Johnson and the Timbers won't be appealing the red card he received Saturday against Vancouver, meaning he'll be suspended for this coming Saturday's game against FC Dallas, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.

Johnson's next opportunity to play won't be until Aug. 2 against San Jose. Fellow midfielder Rodney Wallace is the favorite to benefit from added minutes in the meantime.
