Giants' Will Johnson: Expects to be released, rejoin Giants on veteran minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is expected to be released but could return to the team on a veteran's minimum deal, NJ.com's Dan Duggan reports.

Duggan notes that the Giants' signing of Rhett Ellison when free agency opened Thursday signaled that Johnson would likely be released after playing out one year of a two-year, $2.3 million contract. That said, it does appear that a return on a minimum contract could be in the cards for Johnson. The 28-year-old hybrid back had six total touches for 23 yards and a touchdown last season.

Giants' Will Johnson: Nearing full recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (neck) is back in the weight room and nearing a full recovery, 247Sports.com reports.

After signing a two-year deal with the Giants last summer, Johnson landed on injured reserve before the 2016 season started due to a neck injury. He's now back in the weight room and appears fully recovered, as evidenced by Johnson's Instagram video from Thursday of himself deadlifting 300 pounds three times in a row. Given his progress to date, the West Virginia product should be good to go for OTAs come April.

Giants' Will Johnson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson (shoulder) was placed on IR on Monday, Ralph Vacchiano of Sportsnet New York reports.

Johnson suffered a stinger early on in the preseason and hadn't returned since. He had an MRI done on his shoulder, which he claims came back clean, but the doctors didn't know when he would get strength back in his arm, so the Giants decided to shut him down for the year.

Giants' Will Johnson: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (neck) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

Also absent is Matt LaCosse (knee), who has been battling Johnson, among others, for the No. 3 tight end role. Jerell Adams and Ryan Malleck figure to handle most of the second-team work in Saturday's game.

Giants' Will Johnson: Suffers stinger Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson suffered a stinger during Friday's preseason victory versus the Dolphins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Inked in the offseason, Johnson was listed among the tight ends on the Giants' first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. While he'll miss a few days of practice, his ability to line up in the backfield should help him earn consistent snaps on a week-to-week basis.
