Bengals' Michael Johnson: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Johnson was able to clear the league's concussion protocol heading into Sunday's tilt, so he'll be ready to make the start at defensive end across from Carlos Dunlap.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Questionable Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Johnson suffered his injury in last week's game against the Chargers and has yet to fully clear the concussion protocol. Jordan Willis should see an increased role at defensive end should Johnson be unable to gain clearance.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Johnson will likely have to clear the league's concussion protocol before playing again. The Georgia Tech product dealt with a pectoral injury going into Week 14, but was able to play without an injury designation. The rest of the week should come with answers to Johnson's status, but if he can't play, Jordan Willis would likely pick up any slack Sunday against the Raiders.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Scores defensive touchdown against Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson scored a defensive touchdown on an interception in the Bengals' comeback win over the Dolphins on Sunday. It was the first score in Johnson's 10-year career.

Johnson began the play by missing a sack on the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, but as Tannehill tried to throw the ball away it deflected off of a teammate and back to Johnson, who was behind Tannehill at the time. Johnson caught it and took it back for a touchdown, one that helped the Bengals tie the game at 17 in the fourth quarter.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Practicing in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Johnson originally suffered the knee injury in Week 2 and was inactive for Week 3 against the Panthers. He was limited in every practice leading up to Week 3 and finally logged a full day of practice Thursday. The former Georgia Tech standout should be good to go for Week 4.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Won't suit up vs. Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Panthers.

Johnson was limited in practice all week but won't end up playing despite the extended break following a Thursday game Week 2. When Johnson exited last week's matchup against the Ravens, rookie Sam Hubbard saw the largest uptick in snaps, which will likely be the case again Sunday.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Remains limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Johnson left the game Week 2 with a left knee injury and was expected to be out for a few weeks. It appears Johnson has recovered quicker than expected, considering there's a chance he plays Sunday. The team will likely proceed with caution even if Johnson does suit up.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Recovering ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recovering from his left knee injury faster than anticipated, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Johnson exited the Bengals' Week 2 matchup with a knee sprain and was projected to miss a couple weeks as a result, but that timetable may have been expedited. The 31-year-old logged a limited participation in practice Wednesday, which may keep the door open a sliver for him to play Sunday at Carolina. He would likely need to put in a full practice Thursday or Friday to bolster his case for an active status.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Will miss a few weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) is expected to be out a few weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Johnson sustained the injury during Thursday's game against the Ravens and left the contest after playing only four snaps. The injury is believed to be a sprained left MCL, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Jordan Willis and Sam Hubbard should see increased workloads in his absence.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Left knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson has a left knee injury and has been declared out for the remainder of the Bengals' Thursday night game against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Fortunately for the Bengals, they are deep at defensive end, but this does hurt their pass rush. Jordan Willis will get more snaps as a result.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Returns to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson re-signed with the Bengals on Sunday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Johnson was temporarily let go from the organization in a move that allowed Cincinnati to avoid exposing some of it's younger talent to the waiver system. Now back in the fold, Johnson is right back in the mix for snaps at defensive end opposite Carlos Dunlap.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Released by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Bengals on Saturday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

The 31-year-old defensive end has a strong reputation for defending the run, but he hasn't recorded more than five sacks in a season since 2012. It's no surprise to see the Bengals going with younger, cheaper options in Carl Lawson and Sam Hubbard, given that they just handed DT Geno Atkins and DE Carlos Dunlap hefty extensions. With 104 NFL starts to his name, Johnson shouldn't have much trouble finding another job, and he might even re-sign with the Bengals at a lower price.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Racks up two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded six tackles (four solo) and two sacks Sunday against the Bears.

Johnson logged 56 of 76 defensive snaps Sunday, the most of any Bengals' defensive linemen. He'll have a tough time accruing more sacks in Week 15 against the Vikings, since QB Case Keenum is second in the league with a sack on just 3.58 percent of his dropbacks.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.

Johnson was considered questionable to play due to a minor back injury that's been nagging him since late October. Now that he's cleared to play, the Bengals will enter Monday's game with all of their usual starters along the defensive line.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers with a back injury.

Johnson was a new addition to the injury report this week and seems to be trending in the wrong direction since he was unable to practice Saturday. There's no clear indication at this point whether the 30-year-old is likely to play, and Jordan Willis and Chris Smith would likely step in at defensive end if Johnson cannot suit up for Week 13.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Back at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (illness) put in a full practice Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The illness resulted in Johnson being limited at Wednesday's practice, but now that he's put in a full session this week, it doesn't appear the defensive end is any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Broncos. The veteran has tallied 21 tackles and three sacks in eight games this season.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Although Johnson will be available, he just sustained this injury in Week 8, so his snap counts could become limited if he experiences any pain. Johnson will return to his starting defensive end role, though, where he has compiled 16 tackles (13 solo) and three sacks through six games this season.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Johnson was limited in practice Thursday and Friday due to the injury, which he sustained in the Week 8 win over the Colts. The 30-year-old has compiled 16 tackles and three sacks over six appearances on the season.

October 29, 2017 04:08 PM
Bengals' Michael Johnson: Leaves game with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson injured his back Sunday against the Colts and didn't return, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Johnson will have his next chance to play in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but if he's unable to recover in time, expect Jordan Willis to slot into his spot. The 30-year-old has 15 tackles (12 solo) and three sacks through five games this season.

Bengals' Michael Johnson: Records two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded four tackles (all solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 20-16 victory over the Bills.

The Bengals defense harassed Tyrod Taylor throughout the afternoon and Johnson led the way with two of the team's six sacks. Cincinnati has a Week 6 bye and then travel to face division-rival Pittsburgh on the road.
