Former New Orleans Saints kicker Brian Johnson is signing with the Washington Football Team following an injury to starter Joey Slye, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Johnson was recently released by the Saints in favor of Brett Maher and initially landed with the Chicago Bears practice squad before getting called up to Washington’s active roster.

Washington lost Slye to a hamstring injury midway through their Monday night win over the Seattle Seahawks, electing to keep their offense on the field for subsequent two-point conversion attempts and fourth downs in opposing territory. Now Johnson will get an opportunity to step in while Slye recovers over the next three weeks on injured reserve.
