  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Career-best tackle total

    Johnson played in all 17 regular-season games for the Bills in 2023, posting 98 total tackles, including 1.0 sacks, eight passes defensed, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

    Johnson failed to record an interception for the first time since the 2019 season, but that's splitting hairs when you consider the compilation of other stats as well as the career-high tackle total. He finished in the top 10 among cornerbacks in most scoring systems, and his versatility (he can play cornerback or safety as well as cover the slot) has proven key for a Buffalo defense that finished fourth in points allowed and ninth in yards allowed this season.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Active as expected

    Johnson (concussion) is active for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs.

    Johnson was able to clear the league's concussion protocols earlier Sunday, paving the way for him to take the field for Buffalo's divisional-round clash with Kansas City. He should draw the start opposite Rasul Douglas, who's active despite a knee injury, at cornerback.

    Johnson's status won't become official until the Bills reveal their inactives list at 5:00 p.m. ET. The All-Pro nickel cornerback will be a key part of slowing down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in Sunday's home game if he does get the green light.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Questionable to face Chiefs

    Johnson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Johnson was limited in practice throughout the week and has another 24-plus hours to progress through the league's concussion protocol. The Bills could really use him against Rashee Rice Sunday night.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Progressing through protocol

    Johnson (concussion) was listed as limited in Wednesday's walk-through practice.

    Coach Sean McDermott revealed that Johnson is progressing through concussion protocol, indicating that he was determined to have suffered a concussion after being evaluated for a head injury during Monday's 31-17 wild-card round win over the Steelers. Johnson will need to gain clearance from an independent neurotrauma consultant in order to clear the protocol and have a chance to play in the divisional round Sunday against the Chiefs, but his presence at practice Wednesday was encouraging.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Good to go versus Dallas

    Johnson (ankle) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Chris Brown of the Bills Radio Network reports.

    Johnson popped up on the Bills' injury report Wednesday and was a limited participant in all three practices leading up to Sunday's contest. He's played every defensive snap over the past two games and has 15 tackles (11 solo) in that span as the starting cornerback alongside veteran Rasul Douglas.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Ankle issue surfaces

    Johnson was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's walk-through session due to and ankle injury.

    The jack-of-all trades defender played 100 percent of the defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Kansas City, so it's perhaps a minor issue considering the Bills didn't have a full practice Wednesday where an injury might be more likely to pop up. Johnson, who had nine tackles in the Week 14 win, is expected to be tasked with trying to stop a red-hot CeeDee Lamb this week, assuming the former is able to suit up for an injury-plagued Buffalo defense.

  • Bills' Taron Johnson: Nine tackles in win

    Johnson recorded nine tackles (six solo), recovered a fumble and deflected a pass in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Chiefs.

    Johnson was able to compile his highest tackle total since Week 6 while also scooping up a fumble in the third quarter that teammate Christian Benford induced. The cornerback has yet to record an interception this season, but he's likely to challenge his career-high 94 tackles from 2020 considering he's already at 71 takedowns in 2023.
