John Harbaugh the Ravens quarterback is impressed with former University of San Diego quarterback Josh Johnson who has been very impressive in preseason so far. Johnson has looked good in summer practices and put it on display in Saturday’s 19-18 win in Indianapolis. He led an impressive touchdown drive at the end of the first half, then preserved the win by making some plays with his legs down the stretch.
The veteran journeyman went 11-for-16 for 72 yards on the night and threw one touchdown, a beautiful 12-yard touch pass to wide receiver Jeremy Butler to end the first half.
“He is making a case to make this team,” Harbaugh said of Johnson. “There is a competition for that [backup quarterback] spot, and it’s been ongoing through training camp. He played well.”
