Cardinals' Johnathan Joseph: Officially on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (stinger) was officially placed on the injured reserve list Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Joseph suffered a stinger during last week's game against the Rams and has found himself on the injured reserve. The veteran cornerback had been dispatched as the starter in recent weeks, though he's still a valuable depth player. Patrick Peterson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Byron Murphy will serve the starting cornerback roles as Joseph remains out.

Cardinals' Johnathan Joseph: Won't play against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (stinger) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Joseph hasn't practiced since suffering a stringer in last week's loss to the Rams. He'll sit out as a result, depleting Arizona's secondary depth behind starting cornerbacks Patrick Peterson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Byron Murphy. Joseph will aim to return next week when the Eagles come to town.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph suffered this injury early in the second quarter. If he's unable to return, the Cardinals will finish Sunday's game with Patrick Peterson, Dre Kirkpatrick and Byron Murphy as their only healthy cornerbacks.

Cardinals' Johnathan Joseph: Inks deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Joseph on Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Joseph was cut by the Titans last week after starting six games for the team this year. The 36-year-old struggled in coverage, allowing a 103.7 passer rating and four touchdowns, but the Cardinals won't need to use him as a starter unless there's an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.

Johnathan Joseph: Cut by Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph was released by the Titans on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 36-year-old signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Titans in April, but they weren't happy with his performance through seven games and opted to move on. Joseph totaled 28 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble while playing significant snaps in the secondary.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Gets over illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals after being a full participant in Friday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Joseph didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he evidently recovered from his illness and wasn't limited in Friday's session. As a result, the veteran cornerback should be out there against the team that drafted him in the first round back in 2006.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Misses practice with ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Turron Davenport of reports.

Joseph will have plenty of time to recover ahead of Sunday's game in Cincinnati, so there's not yet any reason for serious concern about his availability. The veteran cornerback hasn't yet dipped below 50 percent of defensive snaps this season, and he's recorded a defended pass in four of six games.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Forces turnovers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph recorded seven tackles, one tackle for a loss, a forced fumble and an interception in Week 3 against Minnesota.

Joseph was all over the field, as he also led the team in tackles in addition to the turnovers he forced. His first big play came on the Vikings' second possession, when he forced a Dalvin Cook fumble. He began the second half with an interception against Kirk Cousins, his first of the season. Depending on Adoree' Jackson's (knee) status, Joseph could shift to a lesser role in Week 4 against the Steelers.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Fine after injury scare
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Joseph left this past Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a leg injury, but Wednesday's full-speed practice downplays any concerns about his availability moving forward. With Adoree' Jackson (knee) on injured reserve still, Joseph is expected to start at CB in Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Leaves game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (leg) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Terry McCormick of reports.

The specifics surrounding the injury remain unclear, however, Joseph was forced to leave the game in the third quarter. With Joseph sidelined in the second half, Kristian Fulton took over at one of the starting cornerback positions.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (arm) has retaken the field during the second quarter of Monday's game versus the Broncos, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Joseph was originally deemed questionable to return after suffering an arm injury during the first quarter, but it appears the problem has subsided enough to allow him to rejoin the action. He should continue to line up opposite Malcolm Butler at one of the outside cornerback spots.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (arm) is considered a question mark to retake the field Monday versus the Broncos, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Joseph is slated to serve as one of the starting outside corners for the Broncos opposite Malcolm Butler, but his absence leaves 2020 second-round pick Kristian Fulton set to serve in that role until he's cleared to play.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Exits with apparent arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph departed Monday's game in the first quarter and was spotted on the sidelines with his right bicep wrapped, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Joseph's absence resulted in 2020 second-round pick Kristian Fulton taking the field. It's unclear at this juncture if the veteran corner will be able to rejoin the action.

Titans' Johnathan Joseph: Links up with Tennessee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph agreed to a one-year contract with the Titans on Wednesday, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

The veteran cornerback hit free agency in March after spending the past nine seasons in Houston, and he's set to remain in the AFC South in 2020, albeit with a different squad. Joseph, who turned 36 years old earlier in April, recorded 51 tackles (43 solo), 13 pass breakups and one interception last season.

Johnathan Joseph: Let go by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans are releasing Joseph on Wednesday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Joseph was already scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 18, so the mutual agreement to part ways simply verifies his departure ahead of time. The 2006 first-round pick spent the last nine seasons with the team. Joseph reportedly intends to continue playing, and he'll now get the chance to test his value on the open market entering his age-37 campaign.

Texans' Johnathan Joseph: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph recorded 51 tackles, 13 passes defensed and one interception over 14 games in 2019.

Joseph, who has spent nine seasons in Houston, will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. He'll be a 36-year-old cornerback looking for work. While the numbers in 2019 are not a big drop-off, the Texans' secondary was picked on a lot, which contributed to the team ranking 29th in pass defense. Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus reports Houston's secondary ranked 28th in coverage grade, so the stage is set for a unit makeover.

Texans' Johnathan Joseph: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's playoff game against the Chiefs.

Joseph logged limited practice time throughout the week, but, as indicated by this news, he wasn't in any jeopardy of missing Sunday. Joseph played a reduced role down the stretch for the Texans and is expected to continue to do so.

Texans' Johnathan Joseph: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is expected to be able to play in Sunday's playoff matchup at Kansas City, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The 35-year-old was unable to play in the playoff opener, but he'll apparently be good to go after working as a limited practice participant this week. Joseph started 11 of 14 games this season, but he played a reduced role down the stretch for the Texans.

Texans' Johnathan Joseph: Inactive Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Bills, Sarah Barshop of reports.

Joseph was a limited participant at practice all week and appeared to be trending toward suiting up. However, he was ultimately unable to get the green light to play. As a result of his absence, look for Lonnie Johnson and Gareon Conley to see larger roles at cornerback.

Texans' Johnathan Joseph: Questionable for wild-card round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Bills.

Joseph practiced in a limited fashion for the third straight day Thursday. He's nursing a hamstring injury sustained during Week 17's tilt against the Titans. The veteran cornerback appears on track to suit up against Buffalo on Saturday, though his status could ultimately come down to a game-time decision.
