  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Returns to practice

    Johnson (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's OTA practice, Matthew Collier of reports.

    Johnson suffered a torn ACL in training camp last July and missed the entire 2021 season. He worked as the No. 3 receiver at times in 2020 before sliding down the depth chart late in that season. He'll be in the mix for the No. 4 receiver role in training camp this summer if he's in fact back to full strength.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Activated off COVID-19 list

    Johnson (knee) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Johnson has cleared COVID protocols, but he remains on injured reserve. The 2019 seventh-round pick isn't expected to play this season after tearing his ACL during training camp.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Surfaces on COVID list

    Johnson (knee) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Johnson remains on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in camp, but he's now in COVID protocols as well. The 2019 seventh-round pick won't suit up this season.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Lands on IR

    Johnson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Eric Smith of reports.

    Johnson suffered a torn ACL on Friday and will miss the entire 2021 season, so this move is strictly procedural. He'll set his sights on returning in time for the 2022 campaign.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Suffers torn ACL

    Johnson was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The 24-year-old suffered the injury during Friday's practice and is slated to miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign. Johnson, who worked as Minnesota's No. 3 wideout as a rookie in 2019, was attempting to win back that job in training camp, but he'll instead spend the season rehabbing from the ACL tear.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Exits with leg injury

    Johnson left Friday's practice with an apparent leg injury, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Johnson, a 2019 seventh-round pick, is hoping to win back the No. 3 role he occupied as a rookie. Slot specialist Chad Beebe took the job last year and remains with the Vikings, but he'll need to fend off Johnson, Dede Westbrook and rookie fifth-round pick Ihmir Smith-Marsette this summer. It's a situation where Johnson could win the No. 3 job or could miss out on the Week 1 roster.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Zero-target finale

    Johnson didn't see a single target Week 17 and ended the 2020 campaign catching 14 of 19 targets for 189 yards across 16 games.

    In his second season with the Vikings, Johnson played a much quieter role and didn't see even half the targets (44) as last year. With Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson as the primary receivers and Chad Beebe passing him on the depth chart, the 2019 seventh-round pick wasn't able to have the same number of opportunities. Depending how Minnesota proceeds in the offseason -- especially as it pertains to Beebe, a restricted free agent -- Johnson may have even more competition for the No. 3 wide receiver role in 2021.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Registers 14th catch of 2020

    Johnson hauled in his only target for 13 yards during Friday's 52-33 loss to the Saints.

    It may not have been an especially eventful Christmas Day outing from the 2019 seventh-round pick, but at least Johnson proved capable of snapping his three-game catch drought over his workload of 11 offensive snaps. Johnson possesses two notable fantasy outings on the year, producing a combined 10 catches for 130 yards between his season-best Week 1 and 12 performances. In 13 other 2020 outings, however, Johnson has totaled only four receptions for 59 yards.

  • Vikings' Bisi Johnson: Endures another zero-target outing

    Johnson was not targeted over nine offensive snaps during Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Bears.

    Johnson enjoyed a seven-catch, 74-yard performance Week 12 against Carolina while Adam Thielen remained on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's since reverted to an obsolete offensive role with the receiving corps returned to full strength. Justin Jefferson's emergence has largely pushed Johnson out of the picture in the passing game, exemplified again Week 15 as the rookie's 11 targets combined with Thielen's three to constitute 87.5 percent of the Vikings' total WR targets.
