  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Starts running again

    Johnson (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's resumed running on turf and expects to be ready to go for the start of the 2023 season, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    Johnson had been an early standout during training camp this past summer and might have pushed for a top-three role in the Giants' wideout corps before sustaining a season-ending torn right Achilles' tendon in an Aug. 24 practice, getting surgery shortly thereafter. The wideout may not be able to achieve full medical clearance in advance of OTAs this spring, but if he continues to make positive progress in the months to come, he could be close to 100 percent for the start of 2023 training camp.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Goes on IR

    The Giants placed Johnson (Achilles) on injured reserve Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    After the Giants claimed Johnson off waivers last September, he proceeded to make 12 appearances as a part of an injury-riddled receiving corps, hauling in 11 of 21 passes for 105 yards and no touchdowns on 209 offensive snaps. According to Connor Hughes of, Johnson has been impressive in training camp, which was apparent through two preseason games, where he produced a combined 10-123-0 receiving line on 13 targets. But after Johnson was carted off the practice field Wednesday, he was diagnosed with a torn Achilles, almost certainly ending his 2022 campaign. He'll likely undergo surgery within the next few days.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Injures leg in practice

    Johnson suffered an apparent lower-body injury during Wednesday's practice, Connor Hughes of reports.

    Johnson reportedly has impressed throughout training camp and caught 10 passes for 123 yards in two preseason games. Initial reports suggest the injury may be serious, but if not, Johnson could have role off the bench Week 1.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Diagnosed with torn Achilles

    The Giants announced that Johnson suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during Wednesday's practice.

    Per Jordan Raanan of, Johnson was vying for a possible key role at wideout after a strong training camp, which included catching 10 passes for 123 yards across two preseason games. However, the 2020 fifth-round pick's season is now likely over before it started, and he could be in danger of missing the start of the 2023 campaign as well.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Gets run with starters

    Johnson caught three of four targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 25-22 preseason win over the Bengals.

    Johnson had two catches for 33 yards over the first three drives while Daniel Jones was in the game, then stayed in for some more action with backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor. The 24-year-old wide receiver's usage in this one was encouraging, and this outing coupled with his 82-yard performance in the Giants' preseason opener have Johnson firmly in contention to make Big Blue's roster. Johnson will have one more opportunity to add to his successful preseason when the Giants take on the Jets next Sunday.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Excels in exhibition opener

    Johnson reeled in seven of eight targets for 82 yards in Thursday's 23-21 preseason victory over New England.

    Johnson led New York pass catchers in targets, receptions and yards in the opening game of the preseason slate. The third-year pro caught five passes for 51 yards in Week 3 last season but had only six receptions the rest of the campaign. He's on the bubble for a spot on the 53-man roster, so Thursday's performance could prove to be especially important for his chances of making the squad.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Playing Sunday

    Johnson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    With Kadarius Toney (shoulder) and John Ross (knee) ruled out ahead of the contest and all of Sterling Shepard (Achilles), C.J. Board (knee) and Dante Pettis (shoulder) on injured reserve, Johnson could find himself in a regular role in three-receiver sets alongside Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton for the season finale. That said, the Giants' passing attack has been anemic since Daniel Jones suffered a season-ending neck injury Week 12, so Johnson will be tough to trust as a DFS option while he's drawing targets from second-year quarterback Jake Fromm, who is making his second NFL start Sunday.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Questionable for Week 18

    Johnson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against Washington, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

    Johnson returned to practice in a limited fashion Thursday after being a non-participant to start the week. He may be in line for an increased workload if he's able to suit up for the first time since Week 15, as the Giants will be shorthanded at wide receiver with Kadarius Toney (shoulder) and John Ross (knee) both out.

  • Giants' Collin Johnson: Listed as non-participant

    Johnson (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Johnson has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, and his status on Wednesday's injury report isn't encouraging for his Week 18 status. If he hopes to have a chance to play in Sunday's regular-season finale against Washington, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday.
