Trumaine Johnson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Johnson was originally supposed to miss only six weeks, but the injury seems to be lingering. E.J. Gaines has received most of the snaps in his absence, and it looks like Johnson will miss at least another week with the MCL sprain.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Johnson was carted off Saturday night and his absence now creates a vacancy at the Rams' starting cornerback position opposite Janoris Jenkins. In his stead, perhaps St. Louis will try deploying versatile rookie Lamarcus Joyner outside, with E.J. Gaines and Brandon McGee other in-house candidates.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Johnson, who was locked in as a starter, left the field on a cart with a towel over his head. The early signs point to a serious injury, which would be a major problem for a Rams team that lacks depth at cornerback. Projected slot man Lamarcus Joyner could perhaps slide into a starting role.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Johnson had a decent fantasy year with the Rams in 2013, intercepting three passes and picking up 68 tackles. However, the Rams' back four struggled overall with both the run and the pass, and St. Louis is hoping Johnson continues to improve in his third season.
Johnson picked up 31 tackles and a pair of interceptions as a nickel back in 2012. He will assume the same role in 2013, and should put up similar numbers.
Johnson will compete with fellow rookie Janoris Jenkins and veteran Bradley Fletcher for the No. 2 cornerback job. It's likely Johnson will end up as the club's nickelback, especially if the club converts Fletcher to a safety.
