Top Jaleel Johnson News

  • Saints' Jaleel Johnson: Headed to New Orleans

    Johnson signed a one-year deal with the Saints on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Johnson appeared in 12 contests for the Texans last season and registered 23 tackles (11 solo) and one fumble recovery. Before heading to Houston, the 2017 fourth-round pick totaled 73 tackles and five sacks across his two previous seasons with Minnesota. Johnson figures to be a rotational piece for the Saints during the 2022 campaign.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Back from COVID list

    Johnson (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Johnson and Roy Lopez (illness) have both been activated, so Houston will have significantly more depth available on the interior of the defensive line in Week 17, which will be useful against the run-heavy 49ers offense.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Johnson (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790 Houston reports.

    Johnson can return in time for Sunday against the Chargers if he is vaccinated and capable of producing two negative tests more than 24 hours apart. With fellow defensive linemen Maliek Collins, DeMarcus Walker, Jonathan Greenard and Derek Rivers all on the COVID list as well, the Texans are in danger of being incredibly thin at the position Sunday. Johnson will try to clear protocols, so he can provide depth and possibly start against the Chargers.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Absent from injury report

    Johnson (back) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Johnson sat out the past two games with the back injury, but he's now absent from the injury report. The 27-year-old has seven tackles while operating as a rotational defensive tackle for the Texans this season.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Not playing Sunday

    Johnson (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Johnson returned to practice a few days ago after missing the previous game against the Cardinals, but he was only able to log limited sessions throughout the week and was ultimately ruled out as a result. Expect Ross Blacklock to replace him once again just like it happened last year.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Deemed questionable for Sunday

    Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Johnson returned to practice this week after missing Week 7. He logged limited sessions all three days. Ross Blacklock filled in for the 27-year-old last time and will likely do so again if needed.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Ruled out Sunday

    Johnson (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Johnson was unable to practice this week due to his back injury, and he'll be forced to miss his second game of the 2021 campaign. Roy Lopez and Ross Blacklock should see a slight uptick in playing time.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Lands back with Texans

    Johnson signed with the Texans on Tuesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Johnson signed with the Texans in the offseason but failed to make the team out of training camp. He landed with the Saints' practice squad afterward but will now have the chance to serve as depth along the defensive line with Vincent Taylor (ankle) sidelined.

  • Texans' Jaleel Johnson: Moves on to Houston

    Johnson signed a contract with the Texans on Thursday.

    Johnson is coming off the best season of his career, having notched 44 tackles (22 solo) and 1.5 sacks across 16 games with the Vikings in 2020. He'll handle a key interior role along Houston's defensive line, though Maliek Collins stands to be ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Vikings' Jaleel Johnson: Career high in tackles

    Johnson produced 44 tackles (22 solo) and 1.5 sacks through his 16 games in the 2020 campaign.

    In his fourth year with Minnesota, Johnson had a larger role and earned much more playing time, allowing him to compile a career high in tackles. While the defensive tackle saw a notable increase in his usage in 2020, the defensive tackle's rookie contract is now up, so he may be wearing a different uniform next season.

  • Vikings' Jaleel Johnson: Four tackles Sunday

    Johnson started at defensive tackle and had four total tackles in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Johnson had an uneven performance as he had three stops, according to Pro Football Focus, but was also part of a unit that failed to generate any pass rush and allowed 4.9 yards per carry. He should get plenty of playing time, as his 57 snaps led all Minnesota defensive tackles.
