by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson totaled eight tackles (six solo) in the Saints' 21-9 win over the Bears on Sunday.

The second-year man led the team in tackles just two days after being activated from the COVID-19 list. Gardner-Johnson enjoyed a productive sophomore season and has started out this year's postseason run on the right foot. He'll have his hands full in next week's NFC divisional round against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Lifted from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Gardner-Johnson will be available for Sunday's wild-card game against the Bears. The second-year safety posted 66 tackles, a sack, an interception and 13 pass breakups over 15 games this season. Gardner-Johnson should handle nearly an every-snap role Sunday.

Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

It's unclear whether Gardner-Johnson tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. It's unclear if he'll be able to play in Sunday's game versus the Panthers. Gardner-Johnson hasn't missed a game since entering the league as a fourth-round pick in 2019.

Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: First pick of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson recorded one tackle and an interception in the Saints' 31-3 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Facing the practice-squad receiver turned quarterback Kendall Hinton, Gardner-Johnson recorded his first interception of the season the second of his career. After a slow start to the season, Gardner-Johnson has put together back-to-back solid showings. He'll look to keep the positive play going when New Orleans faces Atlanta in Week 13.

Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: First sack of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson racked up eight tackles (six solo), two tackles for a loss and a sack in the Saints' 27-13 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

His eight tackles give him 49 through nine games, matching his total from all of 2019. As a cherry on top, Gardner-Johnson notched the first sack of his career with a takedown of Nick Mullens. Gardner-Johnson will likely be busy in Week 11 when the Saints face a high-powered Atlanta offense.

Saints' C.J. Gardner-Johnson: Leads team in tackles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson compiled nine tackles (eight solo) and two tackles for a loss in the Saints' 26-23 OT win over the Bears on Sunday.

CJGJ lead the team in tackles Sunday, though he'll likely be remembered more for his on-field scuffle. Gardner-Johnson was sucker punched by Javon Wims after Wims accused him of spitting on him and ripping out his mouthpiece. Gardner-Johnson finished the game, but Wims was immediately ejected. Gardner-Johnson will have a tall order in Week 9 against Tampa Bay.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson recorded six tackles (five solo) in the Saints' 35-29 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Quality rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson ended his rookie season with 49 tackles (38 solo), one interception and a forced fumble in 2019.

The fourth-rounder out of Florida played a key role in New Orleans' defense in his rookie season, starting seven contests and forcing two turnovers. He was in the starting lineup for the final three games of the regular season and played just over 80 percent of defensive snaps in that stretch, finishing the 2019 campaign on a high note. He'll look to take the next step forward in 2020 when he returns for his second season with the Saints.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Eight tackles and fumble recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson recorded eight tackles (five solo) and a tackle for a loss in the Saints' 38-28 win over the Titans on Sunday.

Gardner-Johnson produced a solid performance Sunday after clearing the concussion protocol earlier in the week and earning the starting nod against Tennessee. He recorded eight tackles for the second week in a row while adding a fumble recovery. He'll look to build on his late-season momentum in Week 17 against Carolina.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Preparing to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is lining up as a starter for the team's Week 16 contest against the Titans, John Hendrix of Sports Illustrated reports.

Gardner-Johnson has played an inconsistent role for the team throughout the season. However, he cleared concussion protocol in time for the team's Week 16 contest and should be in line for an increased role with Vonn Bell (knee) inactive.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is active Week 16 against the Titans, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Gardner-Johnson saw his highest defensive snap count in the last three games Week 15 against Indianapolis, but emerged from the contest with a concussion. He's since cleared protocol and even logged a full practice session, paving the way for a Week 16 return.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Logs full practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Mike Triplett of reports.

Gardner-Johnson upped his practice participation each day since sitting out Wednesday. If active, he'll likely get the start with Vonn Bell out due to a knee injury.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of reports.

Gardner-Johnson is making progress through the league's five-step protocol for head injuries after being sidelined to begin the week. The rookie fourth-round pick will need to fully clear the concussion protocol before retaking the field. With Vonn Bell (knee) also nursing an injury, D.J. Swearinger could be in line to play an expanded role on defense against the Titans on Sunday.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gardner-Johnson suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's contest, Amie Just of The Times-Picayune reports.

The rookie will have to pass concussion protocol testing before he can return to the field in a future contest. The safety recorded eight tackles (six solo) before exiting the contest. If Gardner-Johnson should miss multiple games, the Saints can take solace in the fact they signed veteran Janoris Jenkins earlier in the day.

Saints' Chauncey Gardner-Johnson: New Orleans selects in fourth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Gardner-Johnson in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 105th overall.

Gardner-Johnson (5-foot-11, 210 pounds) showed standout playmaking ability at Florida, where as a junior last year he intercepted four passes (returning two for touchdowns) while making nine tackles for loss, and he supplemented his prospect profile with a standout 4.48-second 40-yard dash at the combine. The Saints already have Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell at safety, however, so Gardner-Johnson will probably play special teams while otherwise rotating into sub packages when they want to limit Bell's coverage exposure. If Bell should leave the picture at some point, then Gardner-Johnson would project as a starter and could emerge as an IDP factor for New Orleans.
