Texans' Kevin Johnson: Full participant at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson, who missed four games last year due to injury, has been a full participant at Houston's organized team activities, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Head coach Bill O'Brien cited Johnson's patience during OTAs, an indicator of greater confidence. Johnson had a strong rookie season, but has endured injuries since, limiting him to just 18 games over 2016 and 2017. The Texans remain confident in the former first-round pick (Wake Forest), however, felt the need to bolster their secondary and added free agent Aaron Colvin.

Texans' Kevin Johnson: Fifth-year option exercised by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson's fifth-year option was exercised by the Texans on Monday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Johnson has endured some struggles during his first contract in Houston, some of which have been aided by injuries, but the former first-round pick is hoping to use 2018 as a bounce back season. While Houston's decision to exercise the fifth-year of Johnson's contract is somewhat a vote of confidence for the 25-year-old, the team can still release Johnson at no cost if he passes his physical at the beginning of the 2019 league year next March.

Texans' Kevin Johnson: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) won't carry an injury designation in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Johnson suffered a bruised knee in Monday's loss to the Steelers and was a limited participant in practice this week. The 25-year-old's 2017 season has been marred by injuries and sub-par performance, and is currently graded as the NFL's second-worst cornerback through Week 16, per Pro Football Focus.

Texans' Kevin Johnson: Bruises knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson injured his knee and won't return to Monday's game against the Steelers.

Johnson's situation isn't considered to be serious, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, as it's believed he's only dealing with a bruise. Regardless, this latest issue only adds to Johnson's brutal third season. He's already missed three games earlier with a different knee issue, has been knocked out of another with a concussion, and currently grades out as Pro Football Focus' second-last cornerback (out of 121 qualified players) across the 10 games he's been healthy for.

Texans' Kevin Johnson: Avoids injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (concussion) will not carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Ravens.

Johnson sustained the concussion in last week's win over the Cardinals, but his full practice Saturday and lack of a designation indicates he is clear of the concussion protocol. The Texans' secondary is currently at full health, with Johnson slated to retain a significant role.
