Safety Jeron Johnson (No. 20, Boise State) is expected to make his second career start, and first since leaving Seattle for Washington in the offseason, when the Redskins host the Saints on Sunday.

Johnson played 49 snaps and had six tackles last week against the Patriots.

“I had some good plays,” Johnson told reporters. “I had some plays I could’ve done better, but that’s football, that’s life. Just got to get better every time, every time you’re on the field, every rep you take. You got to try and do it better then you did it the time before.”

Johnson, who suffered a hamstring injury in fall camp, has been playing behind Duke Ihenacho and Trenton Robinson.

Said coach Jay Gruden on Redskins.com: “He’s a smart kid and a good tackler. We thought he deserved the right to play and he played pretty well for the time that he did play.”
