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.

Johnson was called up to the Canadian national team for two World Cup qualifiers this month, but he will not miss any MLS games, The Oregonian reports.

Johnson recently returned from a broken leg, but he's been able to play nearly full matches, so while he will play twice for Canada (June 11 and June 16), he should have enough time to recover before the Timbers face the Dynamo on June 20.
