Jon'Vea Johnson: Brought onto practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys signed Johnson to the practice squad Sunday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Johnson spent the entire 2019 season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury after a solid rookie training camp, but he was unable to secure a spot on the final roster this season. He's one of two wide receivers -- Aaron Parker being the other -- on Dallas' practice squad to begin the year.

Jon'Vea Johnson: Waived Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was waived by the Cowboys on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning Newsreports.

Johnson missed time during training camp after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but it never made sense from a roster construction standpoint to see him make the Cowboys' 53-man roster. Expect the undrafted rookie to once again participate on the team's practice squad.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Activated by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has been activated from the Cowboys' reserve/COVID-19 list.

Johnson, who spent last season on IR with an arm/shoulder issue, will now look to build off the momentum he built last summer prior to his injury. The 6-foot, 192-pounder is among the players looking to secure a depth wideout role with Dallas behind roster locks Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Diagnosed with COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It has been confirmed that Johnson does indeed have COVID-19, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Johnson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday, but it was unclear if he officially had it or had just been in contact with somebody infected. Now that the illness has been confirmed, the second-year pass catcher will need to self-quarantine and subsequently test negative before being able to return to the field. He showed some nice flashes during the 2019 preseason before a shoulder injury prematurely ended his rookie campaign.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Johnson (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The move doesn't necessarily indicate that Johnson has tested positive for COVID-19, as players who have had contact with another individual who tested positive are also automatically placed on the temporary IR category. When he receives medical clearance to return to practice, Johnson will work to build on the impressive preseason he enjoyed last August, before a shoulder injury prematurely ended his rookie campaign.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Looking to build on rookie flashes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is competing for a depth spot on the 53-man roster, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Johnson enjoyed an impressive training camp in Dallas last season after going undrafted out of Toledo, but an ill-timed preseason shoulder injury ended his rookie campaign prematurely. If the 6-foot, 192-pound sophomore wideout is again able to capitalize on his offseason opportunities, he could make another case to secure a position on the 53-man roster. As a speedster who makes up for unremarkable athleticism with solid route running, showing well on special teams would further assist Johnson's chances of making the team.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys placed Johnson (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Johnson suffered the injury in the team's preseason finale. The undrafted free agent made a big impression during camp and had a legit shot at landing on the final 53-man roster before injuring his shoulder. Unfortunately, his season has come to a premature end unless he and Dallas reach an injury settlement once his health allows a return.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Exits with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson sustained a shoulder injury in Thursday's preseason matchup with Tampa Bay and has been ruled out for the remainder of the contest, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It's unclear how long Johnson's recovery might be. The injury certainly doesn't come at a good time, as the undrafted rookie out of Toledo tries to battle for a roster spot despite dropping three passes between the Cowboys' second and third preseason games and seemingly falling behind a bit in the depth chart.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Trouble with drops in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has dropped three passes through two preseason games, and he appears to have fallen behind more experienced wide receivers like Devin Smith on the depth chart, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The undrafted rookie free agent out of Toledo had some big days in training camp where his speed and route-running stood out, but if Johnson can't hang onto the ball when it matters, his athleticism won't help him much. He remains a long shot to make the Cowboys' initial 53-man roster, but he could be ticketed for the practice squad if the team feels his issues are correctable.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Making big impression in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has seen reps with the first-team offense in the absence of Amari Cooper (heel) and been tried out as a punt returner, so the undrafted free agent appears to be a serious candidate to win a spot on the Cowboys' 53-man roster, John Owning of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Johnson has had some issues with drops during camp, but the Toledo product has flashed his field-stretching speed on multiple occasions and also shown the ability to get open on shorter routes. Even if he makes the Week 1 roster, Johnson would need injuries ahead of him on the WR depth chart to make a fantasy impact this season, but the Cowboys may have unearthed another UDFA gem to polish.

Cowboys' Jon'Vea Johnson: Joins Dallas after draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys signed Johnson as an undrafted free agent Tuesday.

Johnson finished fourth in school history with 24 receiving touchdowns during his career at Toledo. As a UDFA, he'll face an uphill battle to win a spot on the Cowboys' final roster.
