  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Hamstring issue derails season

    Johnson (hamstring) finished the season with nine receptions for 160 yards and no touchdowns across seven games with Tennessee.

    Johnson was very limited due to two separate stints on injured reserve during his first season in Tennessee. In between, he showed the ability to produce when given an opportunity in the absence of A.J. Brown or Julio Jones as he turned in 100 and 52-yard performances in two separate games to account for nearly his entire production in 2021. Johnson is slated to hit free agency at the conclusion of Tennessee's playoff run, and he'll look for an opportunity to provide depth at wide receiver for another team in the league.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Shut down for season

    Tennessee placed Johnson (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Because Johnson previously opened the season on IR, he's not eligible to play again in 2021 now that he's being moved off the 53-man active roster for a second time after he injured his hamstring early in Sunday's 22-13 loss to the Texans. The setback is an untimely one for Johnson, who broke out with five receptions for 100 yards in a Week 10 win over New Orleans and looked poised to emerge as the No. 2 wideout behind A.J. Brown following Julio Jones' placement on IR with a hamstring concern of his own. With Jones out for at least two more games and Brown's status for a Week 12 matchup with the Patriots in jeopardy due to a chest injury, the Tennessee receiver room is incredibly unsettled at the moment.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Suffers hamstring injury

    Johnson was forced out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a hamstring injury, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

    With Johnson already ruled out for the rest of the contest, he'll finish the day with without a catch after logging just one target. In his absence, A.J. Brown, Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine will head the Titans' wideout corps versus Houston.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Reaches 100 yards

    Johnson recorded five receptions on six targets for 100 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Saints.

    Johnson entered the game with only four receptions across five games this season, though he stepped up in the absence of Julio Jones (hamstring). He delivered several big plays, highlighted by a 50-yard gain late in the first quarter when he quickly turned a short slant upfield. He added additional receptions of 17 and 16 yards to provide a big-play element to the Titans' offense. The team has been lacking a consistent second receiver behind A.J. Brown all season, and Johnson will have the chance to prove himself capable of the role in a Week 11 matchup against the Texans.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Struggles with increased role

    Johnson recorded one catch on five targets for eight yards in Sunday's 34-31 win over the Colts.

    Johnson saw an increased role with Julio Jones (hamstring) sidelined, and he finished tied for second on the team with five targets. However, that didn't translate to much production as his only reception came midway through the first quarter. Johnson also recorded five targets in Week 5 -- another game that Jones missed -- so he could be an under-the-radar candidate for targets in a Week 9 matchup against the Rams should Jones remain sidelined.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Produces 52 yards

    Johnson caught three of five targets for 52 yards against Jacksonville on Sunday.

    Johnson is somewhat convincing in his role as a downfield specialist for the Titans, and Sunday he provided meaningful production as they played without Julio Jones (hamstring). The Titans might need him to stretch the field again against Buffalo in Week 6 if Jones isn't able to return by then, but if Jones is active then Johnson is unlikely to draw more than a handful of snaps off the bench. Sufficient as he might be in his specialist role, Johnson probably can't take on much volume as a receiver.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Activated from IR

    Johnson (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Johnson missed the first four games of the season due to an undisclosed injury but has been practicing for two weeks. He'll provide the Titans with additional depth at wide receiver behind A.J. Brown while Julio Jones (hamstring) is sidelined and could see immediate involvement in the team's passing attack Sunday against the Jaguars.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Return from IR looming

    The Titans designated Johnson (undisclosed) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Johnson spent the minimum three weeks on IR, and he'll now have three weeks to be added to the 53-man roster. If he isn't activated by the conclusion of the 21-day evaluation window, he'll head back to IR for the remainder of the season. The statuses of wideouts Julio Jones (leg) and A.J. Brown (hamstring) remain in question Week 4 against the Jets, so Johnson could have a chance to make an immediate impact if he's cleared to play Sunday. The 27-year-old appeared in 11 games for the Colts last year and caught 14 passes for 255 yards.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Lands on injured reserve

    Johnson (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Johnson earned a spot on Tennessee's initial 53-man roster but will now head to injured reserve with the unspecified injury. The 27-year-old will be sidelined for at least the first three games of the season.

  • Titans' Marcus Johnson: Continuing strong play

    Johnson continues to stand out with his performance in training camp and caught a number of passes Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Both Julio Jones (undisclosed) and A.J. Brown were absent from the practice, but Johnson nevertheless impressed with multiple receptions and his work after the catch. Noted as an early standout in camp, Johnson has carried his strong play forward and is gaining positive attention from the coaching staff. Josh Reynolds figures to serve as the team's third receiver behind Brown and Jones, though it appears Johnson is pushing for a fairly significant role in the offense.
