Duke Johnson, Parts ways with Jags

Johnson was released off Jacksonville's practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Johnson was signed to the Jaguars' practice squad last week, but he apparently didn't make enough of an impression over the past week-plus to warrant a longer look. The 27-year-old is now in search of a new team, as James Robinson and Carlos Hyde will continue to lead Jacksonville's backfield.

Josh Gordon, Awaiting reinstatement

Gordon (suspension) is awaiting final approval on reinstatement from the commissioner Roger Goodell after the NFL Players' Association determined Tuesday that the receiver completed his league-monitored treatment program, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Since the NFL suspended him indefinitely in January on the heels of a setback in his recovery from substance abuse a month earlier, Gordon has apparently satisfied all the conditions of his program and is preparing to resume his career. Now 30 years old, Gordon hasn't appeared in the NFL since 2019, when he recorded 27 receptions for 426 yards and one touchdown in 11 games between stops in New England and Seattle. Given his lack of consistent action since his breakout 2013 campaign with Cleveland, Gordon no longer profiles as a game-changing receiver at this stage, but he could have some utility for a team as a depth piece if reinstated by the NFL.

Zane Gonzalez, Takes over as Carolina kicker

Carolina signed Gonzalez off Detroit's practice squad Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: The Panthers will make a change at kicker following their Week 1 win over the Jets, bringing in Gonzalez to replace Ryan Santoso, who was waived after missing an extra-point attempt in the victory. Though he lost out in a job battle with Austin Seibert in the preseason for the Lions' kicking job, Gonzalez was one of the more experienced options available for Carolina to add to the roster. The 26-year-old has seen NFL action in each of the past five seasons with either the Cardinals or Browns, converting at a 78 percent clip on field-goal tries and a 94.6 percent rate on extra-point attempts for his career.

Greg Joseph, Converts clutch 53-yard field goal

Joseph made a 53-yard field goal at the end of regulation in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati to send the game to overtime. It was his only field-goal attempt and he converted all three extra-point attempts.

Analysis: Joseph wasn't overly impressive in the preseason, so converting a clutch long kick likely buys him some job security given head coach Mike Zimmer's propensity for switching kickers.

Harrison Bryant, Targeted twice in opener

Bryant caught one of two targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 33-29 loss to Kansas City.

Analysis: Bryant emerged as the second tight end ahead of David Njoku in 2020, but the roles were reversed in the season opener. Close watchers of the Browns' training camp and preseason were expecting this, but it became noticeable Week 1, when Njoku (35 snaps) nearly doubled the playing time of Bryant, who was on the field for 19 offensive snaps.
