  • Bengals' Clay Johnston: Returns to active roster

    The Bengals activated Johnston from their reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Johnston was unable to suit up in Week 15 as he was in the league's COVID-19 protocols. Now that he's back on the active roster, the linebacker will likely continue to contribute on special teams. Expect Johnston to return to the field for the Bengals' Week 16 contest with the Ravens

  • Bengals' Clay Johnston: Won't play Week 15

    Coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Johnston (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest with the Broncos, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Johnston was placed on the COVID-19 list Monday and won't return in time for Week 15. The 2020 seventh-round pick has mainly contributed on special teams since joining the Bengals on Nov. 9, so his absence shouldn't impact Cincinnati's defensive game plan.

  • Clay Johnston: Can't make final team

    The Rams waived Johnston on Saturday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Johnston is coming off an ACL injury sustained during his final season at Baylor, so his odds to make the regular-season roster were always slim. The Rams could be motivated to allow the Hard Knocks standout a year to develop on the practice squad.

  • Rams' Clay Johnston: Putting in work

    Johnston (knee) was showcased in episode two of HBO's Hard Knocks taking part in on-field drills.

    Johnston fell to the seventh round of April's draft in part due to having missed the last seven games of his senior season at Baylor due to an ACL injury, but it looks as though he's already handling unrestricted practices at training camp. He's competing for a reserve and/or special-teams role as a rookie.
