Top Ty Johnson News

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Sticking with Buffalo

    Johnson is re-signing with Buffalo on a one-year contract, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    The 2019 sixth-round pick played in 18 games for the Lions and 44 for the Jets before landing in Buffalo last year. Johnson then spent the first month and a half of the 2023 season on the practice squad, eventually getting a promotion after Damien Harris suffered a season-ending head/neck injury in mid-October. By the end of the year, Johnson had eclipsed Latavius Murray as the team's No. 2 RB, getting 15 carries and three targets for 80 total yards in two playoff games. He'll now stick in Buffalo, where James Cook and Darrynton Evans are the only other RBs under contract at the start of the 2024 league year.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Works way up depth chart in 2023

    Johnson gained 132 rushing yards on 30 carries (4.4 yards per rush) and caught all seven of his targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in 10 regular-season games this season.

    Earlier in the season, the veteran RB saw most of his action on special teams, but by the time the Bills got to their playoff run, Johnson had climbed over an injured Damien Harris (head/neck), a freshly signed Leonard Fournette and an aging Latavius Murray on the depth chart. Johnson actually saw 20 carries in the playoffs, suggesting the team trusts him in its dynamic offense. The former Lion and Jet is still just 26 years old and the Bills could bring him back in a depth role behind James Cook in 2024, but Johnson will need to be re-signed in the offseason in that case.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Cleared to play vs. Steelers

    Johnson (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's wild-card round game against the Steelers.

    Johnson was a limited participant in all three of Buffalo's practices heading into the postseason, but Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports that the running back has cleared concussion protocol. Johnson, Leonard Fournette and Latavius Murray are all options to spell starting running back James Cook, with Johnson profiling as the youngest and shiftiest of the three depth options.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Getting work in

    Johnson (concussion) will be a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills Radio Network reports.

    Johnson suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, but he seems to have made progress on some level as he navigates the five-step protocol. He'll still likely need to get in a full practice Thursday or Friday, plus he'll need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before getting the green light to suit up in Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Tests confirm concussion

    Johnson (concussion) has been downgraded to out Sunday against the Dolphins.

    Johnson was evaluated for a head injury, and the tests revealed a concussion. He won't return to Sunday's game, so Johnson will finish the regular season with 30 carries for 132 yards, as well as seven catches on as many targets for 62 yards and a touchdown. Johnson will have to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol to suit up in the wild-card round of the playoffs.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Evaluated for head injury Week 18

    Johnson is being evaluated for a head injury Sunday against the Dolphins.

    Johnson was injured on a big hit just outside the end zone in the final seconds of the first half. The backup running back had one carry for five yards and caught his only target for nine yards prior to getting hurt. It remains to be seen whether he'll be able to return to the regular-season finale.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Five carries in win

    Johnson rushed five times for 22 yards in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Patriots.

    Johnson played 13 of the Bills' 69 offensive snaps Sunday, operating as the No. 3 running back behind James Cook and Latavius Murray. In nine games this season, Johnson has now recorded just 29 carries for 127 yards with six catches for 53 yards and a touchdown. He's not seeing enough work in Buffalo's offense to be a consideration for fantasy purposes as the Bills wrap up their regular season against the Dolphins in Week 18.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Cleared to return Week 17

    Johnson (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Johnson practiced fully Friday to gain clearance after limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday. He's set to return from a one-game absence and continue splitting the leftovers behind starting running back James Cook with Latavius Murray, though Buffalo's backfield could get even more crowded if the Bills elevate Leonard Fournette from the practice squad again.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Limited in practice again

    Johnson (shoulder) was a limited practice participantt on Wednesday's walkthrough.

    Johnson was a limited participant all last week before ultimately being inactive for the Bills' road win over the Chargers. His absence allowed Leonard Fournette to suit up for the first time all season, albeit with minimal impact in a game in which lead back James Cook took on a career-high 75 percent snap share.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Limited Thursday

    Johnson (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    The 26-year-old running back missed Buffalo's Week 16 win over the Chargers with this shoulder issue, and he's now opened the team's week of practice with consecutive limited sessions. Unless Johnson is able to practice in full Friday, he'll likely carry an injury designation into the weekend.
