  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Enters last year of contract

    Johnson recorded one tackle in the preseason finale against the Bills on Saturday.

    Johnson, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, is healthy after missing the last four games of the 2022 season with finger and rib injuries. The veteran is expected to be Chicago's starting outside corner, with Tyrique Stevenson and Kyler Gordon expected to be the next two corners in the lineup. Johnson averaged 3.2 tackles per game last year, though his game-to-game production was inconsistent. Based on his current role, he'll be a moderate-floor, low-upside IDP option.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Recovered from hand injury

    Coach Matt Eberflus said Johnson (finger) is fully recovered and "good to go" but is not participating in OTAs, ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports.

    One would have to assume Johnson's absence from OTAs is contract related, as he's headed into the final year of his rookie deal that is set to pay him just $2.993 million in 2023. Chicago's No. 1 corner, Johnson is likely sitting out the voluntary part of the offseason program while seeking an extension.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Ends season on injured reserve

    Johnson ended the season with 35 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over 11 games.

    Johnson (finger/ribs) was placed on injured reserve after Week 15 and played 11 games. He failed to intercept a pass, and he has just one pick during his three years in the league. As a tackler, he averaged three per game, though his game-to-game production was inconsistent. Unless his situation changes next year, he'll be a moderate-floor, low-upside IDP option. He's under contract with the team through the 2023 season.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Out for season

    The Bears placed Johnson (finger/ribs) on injured reserve Friday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    Johnson was forced to leave the Bears' Week 15 loss to Philadelphia early due to rib and finger injuries, but he logged full practices Tuesday and Wednesday, suggesting he was going to be fine moving forward. However, the third-year defensive back was downgraded to a limited participant Thursday and drew a questionable tag for Saturday's matchup against Buffalo. The finger issue appears to be worse than initially thought, as coach Matt Eberflus said after practice Thursday that Johnson may be dealing with a broken ring finger, per Adam Hoge of, but the exact extent of the issue remains unclear. Nonetheless, Johnson will be forced to miss Chicago's final three regular-season matchups after landing on IR. He'll end the 2022 campaign with 35 tackles, seven pass deflections, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 11 appearances.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Downgraded to questionable

    Johnson (finger/ribs) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bills.

    Johnson was forced out with a pair of rib and finger injuries during Chicago's loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. While he initially seemed to be in the clear after logging full sessions both Tuesday and Wednesday, the cornerback then took a step back as a limited participant in practice Thursday. It appears the finger issue could be Johnson's biggest obstacle to playing Saturday, as Bears coach Matt Eberflus said that the 23-year-old has had one of his ring fingers in a brace and that he's unsure if it's a broken bone, according to Adam Hoge of Should Johnson sit out, Jaylon Jones and Josh Blackwell would likely see increased playing time after Kindle Vildor (ankle) was already ruled out Thursday as well.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Listed as full participant

    Johnson (finger/ribs) was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.

    Johnson departed Sunday's loss to Philadelphia with apparent rib and finger injuries, but he's since been noted as a full participant during Tuesday's walk-through session, implying that the issues aren't putting the 23-year-old's Week 16 availability in jeopardy. The Bears are set to host the Bills on Saturday, where Johnson is in line to operate as Chicago's No. 1 cornerback opposite Kyler Gordon.

  • Bears' Jaylon Johnson: Dealing with injury to ribs

    Johnson exited Sunday's loss versus Philadelphia with a rib injury, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The precise severity of the injury is still unknown. Should the 2020 second-rounder Johnson miss any game action, Jaylon Jones would probably be in line for an expanded role in Chicago's secondary.
