Johnson carried the ball twice for minus-6 yards during Sunday's 26-20 win over the Panthers. Johnson's involvement in the offense continues to be nearly nonexistent. Sunday's contest marked the first game all season in which Johnson wasn't targeted as a receiver, and his rushing total also marked a season low. With rookie Nick Chubb continuing to dominate the snaps and workload, the 25-year-old back has just seven carries for 25 yards and six receptions for 66 yards over the past four games.
Johnson (personal) doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Panthers after practicing fully Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. After taking Wednesday and Thursday off following the death of his grandmother, Johnson returned to the team facility Friday, putting to rest any concern about his Week 14 availability. Despite missing out on some practice reps this week, Johnson shouldn't face any restrictions come Sunday, though his role has been downsized anyway since Week 10. Johnson hasn't eclipsed 20 offensive snaps in any of the past three games, mostly as a byproduct of the Browns unleashing lead back Nick Chubb in the passing game.
Johnson (personal) has rejoined the team Friday after missing practice the last two days, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. An earlier report from Michael Silver of NFL.com indicated Johnson may not return in time for Sunday's game against the Panthers following the death of his grandmother, but that no longer appears to be the case. The Browns' official injury report should clear any questions on the 25-year-old's availability when it's released later Friday.
Johnson (personal) may not return to the team for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Michael Silver of NFL.com reports. Johnson has been away from the team this week due to the death of his grandmother, according to Silver. The Browns' injury report should provide a better idea of his game status, but at this point, the 25-year-old's availability is uncertain.
Johnson (personal) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Johnson will remain away from the team for a second straight day to address the personal matter, leaving his availability for Sunday's game against the Panthers tentatively in jeopardy. If Johnson rejoins the team for its final practice Friday, it would assuage any concerns about his Week 14 status.
