  • Bills' Taron Johnson: First INT of season

    Johnson (concussion) recorded four solo tackles while also intercepting a pass in the 45-17 win over the Jets on Sunday.

    After clearing concussion protocol prior to the game, Johnson intercepted his first pass since his historic divisional-round 101-yard pick-six against the Ravens last January. The 25-year-old is an extremely valuable part of the Buffalo defense, playing an important role alongside star corner Tre'Davious White, which has translated to modest fantasy value consisting of 44 tackles, six passes defensed, one forced fumble and Sunday's interception.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Quick return to action

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Johnson, who left last week's loss to the Jaguars due to a concussion, has cleared the protocol, Chris Jenkins of the Bills' official site reports.

    That means Johnson will be back on the field this week to serve in his valuable third-cornerback role as the Bills try to get back in the win column following a humiliating loss to the Jaguars. The Bills are working through some injuries -- the big one on defense being Tremaine Edmunds, who is listed as out due to a hamstring injury -- so having Johnson and his playmaking ability out there will surely benefit the league's best scoring defense as the Bills take on the Jets.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Clears concussion protocol

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Johnson hasn't yet been officially cleared to suit up Sunday versus the Jets, but it looks like the cornerback is now trending in the right direction. He's served as Buffalo's primary slot corner this season.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Back on practice field

    Johnson (concussion) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

    Johnson is further along in the protocol than teammate Zack Moss, who also suffered a concussion in Sunday's major upset loss to the Jaguars and wasn't able to practice at all Wednesday. As for Johnson, this should give him enough time to get back in action Sunday against the Jets, assuming no setbacks.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Ruled out with concussion

    Johnson has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Jacksonville due to a concussion.

    Johnson suffered the injury early in first quarter of the team's game and was evaluated for a head injury. He has served as the team's primary slot corner, so his loss will be significant to the Bills' secondary.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Being evaluated for a head injury

    Johnson is being evaluated for a head injury after leaving Sunday's contest against the Jaguars early.

    Johnson left Sunday's contest in the first quarter and is questionable to return. If he is unable to return, then Siran Neal will likely have to step into the slot corner role for the remainder of the contest.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Big game follows big contract

    Johnson led the Bills with 12 total tackles and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

    Even though Johnson is a reserve cornerback in name, the Bills play a style of defense that he rarely leaves the field, especially against passing teams like the Chiefs. With 27 tackles, five passes defensed, a sack and a forced fumble, Johnson -- who signed a three-year contract extension this weekend -- can help those in IDP leagues. Johnson was on the field for 85 of 86 defensive plays Sunday after missing last week's game due to a groin injury.
