Isaiah Johnson: Waived by Las Vegas
The Raiders waived Johnson on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Las Vegas' former fourth-round pick from the 2019 draft is set to hit waivers after spending two seasons with the Raiders. Last season, the cornerback recorded 13 tackles (seven solo) and four pass deflections. Johnson had a hard time getting playing time with the Raiders, so a fresh start on a new team could be beneficial to the 25-year-old.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Off PUP list
Johnson (undisclosed) was activated from the PUP list by the Raiders on Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.
Last seaso, Johnson appeared in 14 games for the Raiders with 181 snaps on defense and 125 snaps on special teams, tallying 13 tackles and four passes defended. Despite playing in 14 games last year, the 2019 fourth-round pick is pretty far down on the depth chart, so getting back on the field is huge for his chances of making the roster.... See More ...

Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Comes off COVID list
Johnson was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Johnson seemingly dodged a positive COVID-19 result, as he's come off the reserve list just three days after initially joining. The 2019 fourth-round pick has been handed an inconsistent workload this season, fielding 50-plus defensive snaps Weeks 9 and 12, but only five snaps per game over his other 11 appearances of the year....

Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Lands on COVID-19 list
The Raiders placed Johnson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Johnson either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person.

His status for that contest should be evident by whether he's present at practice Wednesday or Thursday.... See More ... See Less

Johnson (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.
The 24-year-old was sidelined for last week's win over the Jets due to the groin injury, but he's ready to take the field Sunday. Johnson played 60 defensive snaps Week 12 but should return to a reserve role with Trayvon Mullen now healthy.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Won't play Sunday
Johnson (groin) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Johnson's practice availability during the week went the wrong direction; he logged FP/LP/DNP before ultimately being deemed questionable. Johnson's absence will hurt the depth at cornerback for the contest, but the good news for the Raiders was that fellow cornerback Trayvon Mullen (illness) was deemed healthy enough to play. With Johnson sidelined, expect Mullen and Nevin Lawson to handle starting duties with Amik Robertson and Damon Arnette seeing depth action.... See More ... See Less

Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Recovers from back surgery
Johnson (back) says he's 100 percent healthy, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
The 2019 fourth-round pick endured a difficult rookie campaign, starting with a concussion and facial fracture early in the preseason. He returned from injured reserve in November and logged 63 special-teams snaps in five games, but a bulging disc in his back required surgery shortly after the season. While he'll likely open training camp with the second- or third-string defense, Johnson has the physical traits of a high-end starter, boasting 4.40 speed at 6-2, 210.... See More ... See Less

Johnson (concussion) was activated off injured reserve Monday, Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune reports.
Johnson was designated to return and started practicing Oct. 14, so Monday was the final day of the 21-day window to activate him. The rookie fourth-round pick may start out in a depth role, but he could easily carve out a sizable role in Oakland's secondary given its porous pass defense.... See More ... See Less

Johnson originally suffered the injuries Aug. 11. The 23-year-old won't be eligible to return until Week 9 if he's able to recover from his injuries by then. For now, it seems that Keisean Nixon will shoulder the extra reps in Johnson's absence.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Week 1 status uncertain
Coach Jon Gruden said Sunday that Johnson is dealing with a facial injury, and his status for Week 1 is unclear, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The injury is said to have something to do with his vision and likely stems from a concussion he suffered in the first game of the preseason. It's unclear if Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol, but he'll have to receive full clearance before returning to the field. If the Houston product can't go for Week 1, Nick Nelson could see an increased role in the defense.... See More ... See Less
