With Josh Reed downgraded to out, it’s a virtual lock that Steve Johnson will be active Sunday, and there’s a good chance James Hardy could be up for the first time since coming off the Reserve/PUP list Nov. 11.
Johnson has played more in the slot than Hardy, so Johnson figures to see more action than Hardy if both are active, as the former seventh-rounder could split time in that role with Roscoe Parrish.
As we told you earlier in the week, Terrell Owens hinted that Hardy would get some playing time this week against the Falcons on Wednesday.
There had been a school of thought that if Brian Brohm was going to start Sunday (which is still going to be determined at game time) that Hardy could be beneficial to have on the field since he was one of the primary receivers Brohm threw to while running scout team plays the past month.
But interim head coach Perry Fewell dismissed that.
