  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Takes questionable tag into weekend

    Johnson (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Johnson was listed as a limited participant in all three of the Jaguars' practices this week, but Michael DiRocco of relays that the 27-year-old running back is likely to play. If available, Johnson would handle his usual duties as the top backup to Travis Etienne (ribs), who is also listed as questionable but in line to play.

  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Bothered by knee

    Johnson was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury.

    Lead back Travis Etienne (ribs) also was a limited participant, two days after playing through his injury and taking 15 touches for 79 yards and a touchdown while playing 62 percent of snaps on offense in a 34-31 overtime loss to Cincinnati. Johnson had six touches for 10 yards while playing 36 percent of snaps in the loss, and he's likely looking at a similar role this Sunday against the Browns, though the Jaguars may feature their backs more than usual with wideout Christian Kirk (groin) already ruled out and quarterback Trevor Lawrence (ankle) quite possibly sidelined as well. A limited practice to start Week 14 prep suggests Johnson is on track to play, at least.

  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Five carries Week 13

    Johnson carried five times for four yards and caught his lone target for five yards during Monday's 34-31 loss to Cincinnati.

    The 27-year-old once again operated as Jacksonville's No. 2 tailback and played 25 of 69 offensive snaps, though he finished below 40 scrimmage yards for the first time since Week 8. Johnson appears to have a firm grip on the backup job but is nothing more than Travis Etienne insurance for fantasy managers.

  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Eight touches in win

    Johnson carried seven times for 19 yards and caught one of two targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 24-21 win at Houston. He also returned one kickoff for 20 yards.

    The 28-year-old has taken hold of the No. 2 tailback job and played 39 percent of Jacksonville's offensive snaps Sunday, while rookie Tank Bigsby received just one carry on two snaps. Starter Travis Etienne exited the contest with a chest injury, but he was able to return and should be available moving forward. Johnson has 17 carries for 51 yards and four receptions for 104 yards over the past three games, and he should continue to have a modest workload as the Jags' primary backup to Etienne.

  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Totals 54 yards Week 11

    Johnson carried seven times for 20 yards and caught his lone target for 34 yards during Sunday's 34-14 win against Tennessee.

    The 27-year-old played a season-high 17 offensive snaps and didn't have much success on the ground in the blowout victory, but his 34-yard catch-and-run during the third quarter tied for Jacksonville's longest play of the day. Johnson has 10 carries for 32 yards and three catches for 62 yards over the past two games, with those 13 touches eclipsing his total from the first eight contests combined. It appears he's taken over the No. 2 RB job from rookie Tank Bigsby, though neither player has much fantasy utility while starter Travis Etienne remains healthy.

  • Jaguars' D'Ernest Johnson: Fives touches in lopsided loss

    Johnson carried three times for 12 yards and caught both his targets for 28 yards during Sunday's 34-3 loss to San Francisco. He also returned one kickoff for 22 yards.

    Johnson tied a season high with 12 offensive snaps and more than doubled his previous season high for scrimmage yards. He could be pushing rookie Tank Bigsby for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind starter Travis Etienne, but there's likely not much to glean from Sunday's game since Jacksonville trailed by three-plus possessions for most of the second half.
