INDIANAPOLIS — After the huddle broke Saturday night and he realized he’d be the top option on the ensuing passing play from 3 yards out of the Colts’ end zone, Saints fullback Austin Johnson couldn’t stop his mind from replaying what happened the last time he had an opportunity to score.

It was at St. Louis on Aug. 8, and Johnson was starting in place of fullback Erik Lorig, who joined the Saints in free agency this offseason on a four-year deal.

Lorig hurt a leg at an intrasquad scrimmage six days earlier, which gave Johnson the chance he wanted.

On the play against the Rams, Johnson caught a short pass to the right around the St. Louis 2-yard line and tried to barrel past cornerback E.J. Gaines. Yet the defender got lower and dove at the Saints fullback’s legs to bring him down at the 1.
