Johnson (stinger) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Seahawks, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With the Rams already having lost fellow cornerback Kayvon Webster (Achilles) for the year, having Johnson back against Seattle will be a huge boost for the Rams' secondary. The cornerback has one forced fumble, two interceptions and 13 passes defended on the year heading into Week 15.
The team initially reported that Johnson had entered the concussion protocol, but head coach Sean McVay indicated that was a communication issue on his part. It's good news for the Rams, who just placed starting cornerback Kayvon Webster on injured reserve with a ruptured Achilles.
Johnson sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
Johnson exited in the second half to be evaluated, and head coach Sean McVay confirmed post-game that he has entered the league-mandated concussion protocol. The Rams are in danger of being without both starting cornerbacks against the Seahawks next week, with Kayvon Webster suffering a torn Achilles Sunday.
Johnson registered seven solo tackles and a pass defensed during Sunday's 32-16 win over Arizona.
This was a season-high mark in the tackles column for Johnson, and he's now up to 41 (36 solo) with an interception and six passes defensed through his past seven games. Additionally, he's had at least five tackles in each game during that stretch. Johnson's reliable fantasy floor makes him a solid IDP option in the majority of settings.
Johnson (leg) was not listed on the team's non-practice injury report Monday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Although the team didn't practice, it's encouraging to see Johnson avoid the report. We'll see if he practice later this week, but things seem to be trending in the right direction for a return to action.
