49ers' Dontae Johnson: Back to work Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

This is huge news for the veteran, as he's been forced to miss the past two games with the nagging groin injury. The secondary for the 49ers is only getting healthier, as Johnson has fully returned, with K'Waun Williams (knee) nearing a return soon also. Now that Johnson appears healthy enough to play, expect him to handle a rotational role at cornerback for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Set to sit Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Johnson started at cornerback in Weeks 3 and 4 before suffering this groin injury. The 49ers' secondary is quite banged up, as Richard Sherman (calf) and K'Waun Williams (knee) are on IR while Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) is considered questionable. If Moseley is also ruled out, Ahkello Witherspoon and Jason Verrett are expected to start while Jamar Taylor rotates in at slot corner.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Ruled out against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers' secondary is in rough shape heading into Week 5, as Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) has also been ruled out and Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is questionable. Jason Verrett and Ken Webster are on track to start at cornerback if Witherspoon is unable to go.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Plays through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson picked up a groin injury during the team's Week 4 oss to the Eagles but played through it, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Johnson gutted out the injury as the 49ers were out of other options at cornerback. With Richard Sherman (calf) eligible to return from injured reserve, the team could have reinforcements on the way in the secondary. That leaves Johnson's status both on the active roster and from an injury perspective in limbo for a Week 5 matchup against the Dolphins.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was elevated to the 49ers' active roster Saturday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jason Verrett (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, so Johnson will take his place as a reserve cornerback. Johnson has only logged 41 defensive snaps since the beginning of 2017, when he was a full-time starter for the Niners, so barring an injury, he'll likely stick to special teams.

Dontae Johnson: Cut by Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was cut by the 49ers on Saturday.

Johnson will hope to latch on with another team, as he has accrued 73 games of NFL experience since being drafted by the 49ers with a fourth-round selection in 2014.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Staying in San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has re-signed with the 49ers on a one-year contract.

Johnson was a fourth-round pick by the 49ers in 2014 and stayed with the the team through 2017. He spent time with several franchises the next two seasons before returning to San Francisco in 2019. The veteran is primarily a special teams contributor, while also providing some depth at cornerback.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Splits nine games across two teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson finished with three tackles through nine regular season games between the Chargers and 49ers in 2019.

Johnson began the year with the Chargers before being released then signed by the team that drafted him in 2014. The 28-year-old saw limited action, serving as corner depth during his brief stint with both clubs. Johnson will look for a new start as an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Secures another deal with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed with the 49ers on Wednesday.

Since starting for the 49ers in 2017, Johnson has been a bit of a traveler, making stops in Buffalo, San Francisco again and Los Angeles (Chargers). The 28-year-old's services are needed again, though, as Richard Sherman (hamstring) and K'Wuan Williams (concussion) both have uncertain statuses for Sunday's matchup against the Falcons. Johnson could have play a majority of snaps if neither of the aforementioned corners is active.

Dontae Johnson: Released by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was waived by the 49ers on Monday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Johnson's return to San Francisco has come to an end after logging just three tackles over 111 combined snaps on defense and special teams. The team's 2014 fourth-rounder will now be subject to waivers.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Lands in San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Johnson to a contract Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Johnson was released by the Chargers last week, and he now stands to provide depth in San Francisco's secondary. The veteran cornerback also offers substantial upside on special teams.

Dontae Johnson: Let go by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers released Johnson on Saturday.

Johnson was good for secondary depth while Michael Davis (hamstring) was out, but Davis is healthy now and the team needed roster spots for Melvin Gordon's activation and wideout depth. He's a solid candidate to land with another squad as a depth asset.

Chargers' Dontae Johnson: Heading to Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed with the Chargers on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Johnson was a starter for the 49ers in 2017, but he spent last year with multiple teams and only suited up for one game for the Bills. Since the Chargers are dealing with injuries to cornerbacks Michael Davis (hamstring) and Trevor Williams (quadriceps), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Johnson will provide experienced depth in the secondary. His first chance to play will be Sunday versus the Lions.

Dontae Johnson: Cut by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers released Johnson on Friday, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Johnson was a starter with the 49ers in 2017, but his second stint wasn't as favorable despite three interceptions in the preseason. The 49ers appear comfortable with Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett and Ahkello Witherspoon as their starting cornerbacks. Johnson is now free to choose his next team.

49ers' Dontae Johnson: Headed back to Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson inked a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old was let go by the Chiefs on May 20, and found his way back to the team that drafted him in the fourth round in 2014. Johnson only played one game with the Bills last season, but made 158 tackles and two interceptions over 63 games with San Francisco in the four years prior.

Dontae Johnson: Let go by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Johnson signed on with the Chiefs in February after bouncing between four organizations last season. The 27-year-old started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 but has since had trouble latching on with a new team.

February 22, 2019 07:32 PM
Dontae Johnson: Secures pact with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs signed Johnson on Friday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Johnson had a whirlwind of a season. He began the 2018 campaign as a starter on the Seahawks, but he suffered a hip injury and was eventually released with an injury settlement. He then spent time with the Bills, Browns and Cardinals before being dropped after Week 15. The Chiefs secondary definitely could use some reinforcements, so Johnson stands a solid chance of making the roster if he can stay healthy.

Dontae Johnson: Let go by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Johnson did not play a single game with Arizona after signing with the team on Nov. 27 and now has been released by the team. The fifth-year pro started 16 games with the 49ers in 2017 but has only appeared in one game with the Bills during the 2018 season. Johnson will look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

November 27, 2018 07:52 PM
Cardinals' Dontae Johnson: Signs with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Johnson on Tuesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

In search of reliable cornerbacks, the Cardinals added Johnson to their roster in hopes of solidifying the position. Johnson started 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 and finished with a team-high 76 tackles. He will likely back up David Amerson, though he could quickly see more playing time if Amerson struggles.

Dontae Johnson: Working out for Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson worked out for the Browns on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Johnson appears to have quickly drawn interest from the Browns after being released by Buffalo in late October. With Denzel Ward (hip), Damarious Randall (groin) and E.J. Gaines (concussion) all nursing injuries, Johnson serve as an appealing depth option for Cleveland's secondary.
