Bills' Taron Johnson: Plays every defensive snap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson had nine total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Johnson plays a lot for someone who's the fourth cornerback on the depth chart, as he's been on the field for 56 percent or more of the defensive snaps in every game this season. Sunday, it would have been difficult to pull him out with the defensive back unit depleted due to COVID-19 protocols, and the third-year corner delivered his best game of the season. Heading into the bye, Johnson sits at 62 tackles, two passes defensed, a sack and a forced fumble.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Another big tackle day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded eight tackles during Monday's loss to the Chiefs, tied for second most on the team.

Johnson sure does pick up a lot of tackles for a third cornerback, as he's second on the team with 42 stops on the season. As we know, however, IDP numbers don't always equate with strong play and sometimes means your guy is simply allowing too many passes to be caught. In Johnson's case, he didn't even start Monday's game after temporarily losing his No. 3 spot, but he ended up seeing 86 percent of the defensive snaps after his replacement, Cam Lewis, got hurt early in the contest.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Giving it a go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) will play in Sunday's game against the Rams.

It was reported earlier that Johnson was expected to suit up in the contest after logging a full practice Friday, so this news isn't surprising. The 2018 fourth-round pick has played at least 76 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the first two games, so he'll likely be in line for a similar role for Week 3.

Bills' Taron Johnson: On track to play Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is expected to play Sunday versus the Rams, Kimberley A. Martin of ESPN reports.

Johnson ended the week with a full practice Friday, and it appears he'll avoid missing any time. The 2018 fourth-round pick has played at least 76 percent of the defensive snaps in each of the first two games, recording 10 tackles (seven solo) and a pass breakup.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Questionable for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Johnson put forth a 'DNP/LP/FP' practice slate this week, so it looks as though he's at least trending in the right direction to suit up. In the event that Johnson were forced to miss any time, Siran Neal would likely see the opportunity to handle increased defensive snaps.

Bills' Taron Johnson: Misses Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson missed practice Wednesday due to a groin injury.

Johnson logged more defensive snaps (57) in Week 2 compared to the 48 he saw in Week 1, so he either suffered the injury late in Sunday's win over the Dolphins or played through it. For the second straight game, the team's No. 2 cornerback recorded five tackles. We'll see if he can get in some practice participation Thursday or Friday ahead of the Week 3 tilt against the Rams.

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.

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.

October 2, 2019 10:32 PM
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.

September 27, 2019 04:44 PM
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.
