Johnson, in his third year out of Boise State, was placed on injured reserve after suffering his third hamstring injury of the season. In seven games this season, he has recorded six tackles.
Cox has recorded 80 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception, in his short career.
Originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, Cox posted 58 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception in 15 games, nine of which he started, his rookie season. He also returned nine kickoffs for 172 yards.
Cox has also seen his share of drama off the field. Hopefully he can save it and put up the same numbers he did in 2010 for the Broncos.
Cox will likely rotate with Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane for playing time opposite Richard Sherman at the corner back position. DeShawn Shead is the other active corner on the depth chart.
The Seahawks will be visiting the New York Giants on Sunday, a team that is averaging just over 233 passing yards per game, 16th in the NFL. Their leading receivers are Victor Cruz (71 receptions, 973 yards, four touchdowns) and Hakeem Nicks (49 receptions, 789 yards, zero touchdowns).
