Ty Johnson Stays Limited Thursday

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (concussion) was limited again in practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Johnson is recovering after suffering a concussion in the Week 18 win over the Miami Dolphins, but he has yet to clear the league's concussion protocol and still may not be able to play this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs. Even if the 26-year-old RB is cleared to play on wild-card weekend, he won't be much of a fantasy consideration for DFS lineups while splitting touches with Latavius Murray behind lead back James Cook. Johnson saw only 30 carries all season for 132 yards and one touchdown on the ground.

Ty Johnson To Be Limited Wednesday

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that running back Ty Johnson (concussion) will be limited in the team's walkthrough practice on Wednesday. Johnson suffered a concussion in Sunday night's big divisional win over the Miami Dolphins to close out the regular season and will now have to work himself through the league's concussion protocol before being cleared to play this Sunday in the wild-card playoff contest against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers. It's a good sign the 26-year-old is limited, but it doesn't mean he'll be active this weekend to serve as RB depth behind James Cook. If active, Johnson has very limited DFS appeal as a change-of-pace option alongside Latavius Murray. Johnson had only 30 carries all year for 132 rushing yards while adding seven catches for 62 yards and a touchdown in 10 games in 2023.

Ty Johnson Being Evaluated For Head Injury

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (head) suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit and had to leave the game on Sunday night. He's currently being evaluated for any concussion-like symptoms along with other precautions. After getting near the goalline, Johnson put his head down and was hit by the Miami Dolphins defender who also went low and made helmet-to-helmet contact. He wasn't seen on the sidelines for some time afterward. Johnson had one carry for five yards and one catch for nine yards on one target before leaving the game. The Bills still have James Cook and Leonard Fournette to lean on, but Johnson's injury will be something to monitor, especially if the Bills end up winning the second seed.

Ty Johnson Stays Limited In Thursday's Practice

For the second straight day this week, Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (shoulder) was limited in practice on Thursday. Johnson could be deemed questionable for the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, but he at least has a chance to return to the fold after sitting out of last Saturday's victory over the Los Angeles Chargers due to his shoulder injury. Even if the 26-year-old manages to play this weekend, he's not a realistic starting fantasy option while working behind James Cook and Latavius Murray. Johnson had a season-high nine carries for 54 yards in his last game, but most of that work came in a blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 15. He has only 24 rushing attempts in eight games in 2023, picking up 105 yards and no touchdowns while adding six receptions for 53 yards and one touchdown.

Ty Johnson Limited By Shoulder Wednesday

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday as his team prepares to take on the New England Patriots in Week 17. Johnson missed Week 16's matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers with the same injury but his ability to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday is a positive sign heading into Week 17. If Johnson is forced to miss another game, Leonard Fournette would likely be active for the second time this season.

Ty Johnson Questionable To Face Chargers

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is officially listed as questionable to play on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16. Johnson injured his shoulder in the Week 15 blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys and now might have to miss a game. The 26-year-old has only been worth stashing on the bench in deep fantasy leagues if you have James Cook rostered. He had a season-high nine carries in last week's blowout, picking up 54 yards on the ground while catching his only target for a four-yard gain. Johnson has only 24 carries all year for 105 yards, adding six catches for 53 yards and one touchdown. If he's out, veteran Latavius Murray will see more touches behind Cook in an excellent matchup against the Bolts.

Dalton Kincaid, Ty Johnson Still Sporting Non-Contact Jerseys

Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid (shoulder) and running back Ty Johnson (shoulder) were limited in practice yet again on Wednesday and were sporting non-contact jerseys. Kincaid played through his shoulder injury in the Week 15 win over the Dallas Cowboys but saw a season-low snap percentage and didn't catch either of his two targets in a game in which the Bills didn't really need to throw the ball much. The 24-year-old's injury isn't very serious and shouldn't keep him from playing this Saturday against the Los Angeles Chargers, although he's fallen to more of a low-end TE1 in fantasy now that Dawson Knox is back in the fold. The matchup against the Bolts is a good one, but Kincaid is likely to be more volatile for fantasy managers to close what has been an impressive rookie season.

Ty Johnson Limited In Tuesday’s Practice

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Tuesday's estimated practice. The Bills didn't actually hold a practice to start the week, so Johnson's limited rep is just an estimate. But the 26-year-old did briefly exit last week's game with a shoulder issue, and it appears to still be bothering him. He'll have a couple more practices to upgrade his status before Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Johnson played a season-high 29% of the team's offensive snaps in Week 15 and seems to be the new RB2 in Buffalo. However, he doesn't carry much fantasy value this weekend.

Ty Johnson Signed To Bills Active Roster

Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson has been elevated to the active roster after the team placed Damien Harris (neck) on IR. Johnson's last action on the field was in Week 18 of last season when he was with the New York Jets. He saw five carries for 12 yards and caught two of his three targets for 13 yards. The 26-year-old has a career average of 4.4 yards per carry but has only scored four times over his four years in the NFL so far. Johnson shouldn't be trusted to start on any fantasy teams at this time as he still will sit behind James Cook and Latavius Murray.

Ty Johnson Expected To Sign With Bills

Former New York Jets running back Ty Johnson has recovered from a torn pec and is expected to sign with the Buffalo Bills. Johnson spent the last three seasons with New York, compiling 140 carries for 652 rushing yards, 62 receptions, 559 receiving yards, and seven total offensive touchdowns. He was released by the organization with an injury designation in late April and is now set to join the AFC East foe. Johnson is most likely a depth and special teams signing, so there's likely no reason to worry about the outlooks of James Cook, Damien Harris, and Latavius Murray based on his arrival. He might not even make the final 53-man roster.
