Bills' Taron Johnson: May have smaller role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) could see less playing time following the offseason addition of Josh Norman, Ryan Talbot of Syracuse.com reports.

Tre'Davious White is entrenched as the team's top corner while Levi Wallace is back after starting all 16 games, so Norman's veteran presence could reduce Johnson's role. The 2018 fourth-round pick appeared in 12 games last year and had 50 tackles (39 solo), one sack, five passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Leaves Saturday's playoff game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson left Saturday's loss to the Texans with an undisclosed injury and did not return, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Johnson isn't a starter, but his loss had a big effect on the game, as starter Levi Wallace was already an inactive. By the end of the game when the Texans were in catch-up mode, the Bills were down to depth corners. Houston started to get a bunch of chunk plays, and while Siran Neal had a couple of big plays in the second half, a couple of his mistakes proved especially costly. Johnson finishes his second season with 50 tackles in the regular season to go with five passes defensed, a sack and one forced fumble.

Bills' Taron Johnson: No lingering effects
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Tuesday's injury report.

Johnson was hurt during Sunday's win over the Steelers, but it appears to have been a minor issue. The second-year cornerback will be ready to go for a crucial divisional matchup against the Patriots on Saturday. Johnson has been strong in coverage this year, allowing 6.9 yards per target and just one score.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Nicked up in Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson needed attention for an undisclosed injury Sunday against the Steelers, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Johnson stayed down after a play before getting checked out by the medical staff. Siran Neal took over Johnson's duties as the third cornerback in nickel sets.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Big part of Thanksgiving Day win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson logged eight tackles and one pass defensed during Thursday's win over Dallas.

Johnson also saw an 85 percent snap share, the second time he's hit that level in the last three games as he shows he's further and further removed from a hamstring injury that messed up the early part of his season. Johnson isn't a starter in name, but he's needed in a number of packages the Buffalo defense runs, so his good play should keep him on the field. On the season, the second-year Weber State product has 30 tackles, four passes defensed and one sack.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Highest PT share of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson played 61 percent of the defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Washington, logging one tackle and one pass defensed.

The box score doesn't tell the whole story, as the second-year player had some big plays in the fourth quarter as the Bills finally pulled away from their pesky opponent. With Johnson finally back to full health -- he missed four games earlier in the season with a hamstring injury -- and Kevin Johnson limited with a knee injury, Johnson seems secure in his No. 3 cornerback role again, where he mainly mans the slot.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) is active and will play in Sunday's clash against Miami.

Johnson has yet to play since Week 1 and was questionable entering the contest. The 2018 fourth-round pick should resume his role as the main slot corner, though a few others have proven capable of filling that role should the Bills prefer to ease Johnson back into duties.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Questionable for Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) practiced fully for the third straight day Friday but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Johnson hasn't played since Week 1, so we have to imagine the Bills want to be extra certain before they commit to trotting the slot corner out there for a full game. Johnson looks like he'll be a game-time decision Sunday morning.

October 16, 2019 04:56 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) returned to a full practice Wednesday following the team's bye week, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The slot corner hasn't played since the team's regular-season opener, so even though he appears mostly healthy he still probably needs to show more during the rest of the practice week in order to suit up Sunday against the Dolphins. If Johnson does return, it's going to make one of the league's better defenses that much stronger.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Sat out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) was inactive for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Johnson missed his fourth straight game, so Kevin Johnson and Siran Neal saw their usage increase. With a bye week up next, Johnson will look to get healthy before Week 7's game versus the Dolphins.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Questionable for Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tennessee after practicing Friday on a limited basis for the third straight day.

Like a number of his teammates, Johnson will be a true game-time decision leading into the contest. His slot corner duties will be filled by a combo of Kevin Johnson and Siran Neal should he not be able to play.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson was limited last week and didn't play, so his potential return will probably be a true question mark leading up to Sunday's game in Tennessee. The team's slot corner was injured in Week 1, while his role in subsequent games has been filled by a combination of other players.

September 29, 2019 12:44 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Unable to suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against New England.

Johnson only logged limited practice time during the week, and as evidenced by this news, the injury is serious enough to force him to miss game time. Now that he's sidelined, look for Kevin Johnson and Siran Neal to share duties as the team's slot corner, tasked with slowing down the prolific Patriots offense.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Limited, questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

It looks like the slot corner might be able to resume his duties in Week 4, a job that had been split up by a few other guys during his two-week absence. The Buffalo secondary is one the league's better units, but it will have its hands full Sunday trying to stop a high-powered New England offense.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Returns to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson, who's missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills have gotten by in covering for Johnson's usual No. 3 corner role once he got injured in Week 1, but could probably use all hands on deck as they try to slow down Tom Brady and the 3-0 Patriots on Sunday in a big divisional matchup.

September 20, 2019 12:52 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson will miss a second consecutive game due to the hamstring injury he suffered Week 1 versus the Jets. Siran Neal will see increased work as long as Johnson is unable to go, though it's been more of a group effort in the sharing of Johnson's usual slot corner role.

September 19, 2019 06:28 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Sidelined Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson is still working his way back from a hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener against the Jets. He will likely have to log at least some limited participation this week to have a chance at returning Sunday.

September 13, 2019 01:56 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: To miss Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at the Giants, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The second-year player didn't practice all week, so his odds were slim even before the official designation came out. Siran Neal will fill most of Johnson's slot/third corner duties in Week 2.

September 11, 2019 02:16 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson, who was forced out of Sunday's opener with a hamstring injury, is not practicing Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson is filling the key slot corner role in a strong Buffalo defense, a role that will likely be filled by Siran Neal if the former can't rally from the injury to play this week against the Giants.

September 9, 2019 04:16 PM
Bills' Taron Johnson: Status in limbo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott had no new information regarding Johnson's hamstring injury, which forced him out of Sunday's win over the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Johnson was capably replaced by Siran Neal as far as slot and special teams duties go, though an extended absence for the former would chip into the depth of what looks like one of the league's better defenses.
