Johnathan Joseph: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Texans' defense has been hit hard by injuries of late, with Brian Cushing (knee) and Jadeveon Clowney (illness) inactive Sunday and Kareem Jackson suffering a knee injury during the game. Joseph, tied with Cushing for the team lead with 50 tackles, will now have to progress through the league's concussion protocol, before he can return to practice, though the good news is that he'll have some extra time to recover with the Texans off in Week 10.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Joseph missed some time in the second half of the season due to hamstring and groin injuries and was impacted by those upon his return, but he still maintained a high level of play at the cornerback position. He's Houston's best cover guy and will continue to be the one who covers opponents' most dangerous wideouts.
Joseph came as advertised, giving the Texans elite cornerback play, tying for the team lead with four interceptions, and helping to turn around one of the league's worst pass defenses. He's the IDP of choice in the Texans' secondary and benefits from playing behind one of the league's better pass rushes.
Joseph has evolved into one of the top corners in the game, earning himself a large commitment from the Texans. Houston is a team starving for good cornerback play and they got an elite one in Joseph. As such, opposing quarterbacks will likely throw away from Joseph's side and limit his interceptions and tackles.
Joseph followed up an impressive but injuryshortened 2008 season in grand fashion, emerging as one of the top IDP corners in the league. Joseph picked off six passes in 2009, returning one for a touchdown, and was credited with 69 tackles — a good number for a cover corner. He’ll team with Leon Hall again this season to give the Bengals one of the top corner tandems in the NFL.
Joseph's foot injury halted a growing season in 2008. He'll start opposite Leon Hall to give the Bengals two up-and-coming corners.
Joseph is expected to start alongside Leon Hall at cornerback for the Bengals in 2008. He picked off four passes last year with 58 tackles and should see an improvement across the board with the added playing time.
The Bengals are counting upon Joseph, last year's first-round draft pick, a lot more heading into 2007. Last season he had a bad habit of dropping easily catchable balls for interceptions. Watch for his status in training camp - he had to have surgery on his foot over the offseason.
Back-up cornerback that will challenge Keiwann Ratliff for the nickel spot. The first round draft pick for the Bengals this offseson, Joseph has been impressive thus far in training camp with his combination of size and speed.
