Bears' Jaylon Johnson: No surgery needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson's shoulder injury didn't require surgery during the offseason.

Johnson , who missed the final four games of the 2020 campaign due to his shoulder issue, posted 44 tackles (34 solo) and 15 pass breakups during his 13 regular-season games in a starting role. Now that the 21-year-old has moved past his injury, he should return to his usual cornerback role in the Bears' secondary.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is listed as inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints.

After missing the past three matchups due to a shoulder injury, Johnson began practicing as a limited participant, but it's confirmed he will not suit up once again. Kindle Vildor will likely take over Johnson's cornerback duties, opposite of Kyle Fuller.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints.

Johnson ended the regular season with a trio of missed games, but he managed to practice on a limited basis in each of Chicago's practice sessions this week. With Buster Skrine (concussion) already ruled out to play in New Orleans, it would provide a notable boost for Chicago's secondary if Johnson can suit up and reprise his usual starting role.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Johnson missed the last three games of the regular season but was labeled as day-to-day by coach Matt Nagy on Monday. If the starting cornerback doesn't suffer a setback in practice this week, he should be able to suit up in the wild-card round against the Saints on Sunday.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Not dealing with serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that Johnson (shoulder) is day-to-day, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Johnson missed the final three games of the season with this injury, but he may return for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints. A better idea of Johnson's progress will be available when the Bears reveal their first practice report of the week Wednesday.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Strong rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson missed the last three games of the regular season with a shoulder injury, and the rookie ended the season with 44 tackles.

Johnson was everything the Bears were hoping he'd be when selecting him in the 2020 draft, and, as he goes into the second year of a four-year deal, it's very likely he could be an emerging star who'll be a coveted IDP option.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Out against Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Johnson will miss his third consecutive tilt as the Bears' secondary depth continues to be tested with Buster Skrine (concussion) also sidelined. Kindle Vildor figures to draw the start at cornerback across from Kyle Fuller.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Remains out Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Johnson did not practice in any capacity this week, and he will consequently miss a second consecutive game. With Buster Skrine (concussion) also out of commission, the Bears will again be short-handed at cornerback.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Ruled out Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's divisional matchup against the Vikings, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Johnson suffered the injury in last week's win over Houston, and this news isn't surprising, considering he failed to practice at all this week. The absence of the rookie out of Utah will hurt the Bears' secondary, as he's racked up 44 tackles (34 solo) and 15 pass breakups across 13 games this season in a starting role. Kindle Vildor, Xavier Crawford and Duke Shelley are the candidates to start and see increased roles now that Johnson has been ruled out.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Status in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Johnson exited last week's blowout win over the Texans and didn't return due to a shoulder injury. He didn't practice all week, but the Bears are leaving open the possibility that he could tough it out for a critical divisional outing. Buster Skrine (concussion) has already been ruled out. Kindle Vildor or Duke Shelley are the candidates to start if Johnson -- who has started every game this year -- sits out.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Injury leaves return in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Texans, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chicago finds itself down a starting cornerback for the time being, however, there's no pressing urgency to get the second-round rookie back into the contest with the Bears carrying a lopsided fourth-quarter lead. Johnson has surrendered five touchdowns in coverage this season, though his 15 pass deflections is an impressive total. He's demonstrated durability in fielding 95-plus percent of Chicago's defensive snaps over 11 of his 12 appearances.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Productive pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded six tackles in Chicago's 27-23 victory over the Lions on Sunday.

With Kyle Fuller being a strong cornerback on the other side of the field, Johnson could see opposing quarterbacks pick on him quite a bit, which may lead to plenty of performances like the one he had in Week 1. It's quite possible that the rookie quickly emerges as a strong weekly IDP option.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Earns starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was named the starting cornerback across from teammate Kyle Fuller, according to the team's official website.

Once Artie Burns was lost for the season early in camp, the writing was on the wall that Johnson would emerge as the starter, especially after being selected in the second round of this year's draft. With the possibility that opposing offenses could pick on the rookie, there's a chance he could post a high tackle total, which would elevate his IDP stock.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Could start Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is expected to step into a larger role in the Chicago secondary to begin the season after Artie Burns (knee) suffered a season-ending ACL tear during Tuesday's practice, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

Although Johnson was selected in the second round of this year's draft, Burns' greater NFL experience at least made him a real threat to beat the rookie out for a starting role at cornerback. However, with Buster Skrine likely ticketed for the slot and a trio of reserves unlikely to pose much of a challenge on the outside, there's now a good chance Johnson starts at the spot opposite Kyle Fuller early in the season, if not in Week 1.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Fighting for starting gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (shoulder) is competing for a starting outside cornerback spot across from Kyle Fuller, Charley Casserly of reports.

Johnson has the opportunity to be an immediate contributor in Chicago's secondary if he can overcome the difficulties of a shortened in-person offseason. His primary competition for a starting gig will likely come in the form of Buster Skrine, who is coming off the least productive season of his nine-year career. The rookie second-round pick is expected to be fully healthy for Week 1 after having played through a labrum tear during his entire junior year at Utah.

Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Ticketed for Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears selected Johnson (shoulder) in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 50th overall.

This was Chicago's second pick of the second round and Johnson addresses a need at corner. Johnson was one of the best players on a dominant Utah defense during his time as a Ute, racking up seven career interceptions. Toughness is no issue with Johnson, who played his entire junior season with a labrum tear. Johnson was considered a fringe first-round talent, so this is a strong value for the Bears as he figures to be an immediate contributor in their defensive backfield if his recovery from shoulder surgery continues on track.
