Draft Scout Kevin Johnson News
08/11/17 - CB Kevin Johnson returned from offseason foot surgery and had no setbacks.
07/26/17 - CB Kevin Johnson has fully recovered from a foot injury that required surgery.
01/17/17 - CB Kevin Johnson is planning his comeback.
As the Texans' players cleaned out their lockers Monday following an AFC divisional-round playoff loss to the New England Patriots, Johnson is recuperating from his second Jones fracture and is upbeat about his future after undergoing the same procedure following his rookie season a year ago. Jones expects to be ready in time for the offseason training program and practices.
"No question about it," Johnson said. "I'm looking to be back healthy and get better, bigger, faster and stronger and just be the best player I can be. I'm looking forward to it. I'm excited about it."
Johnson broke the bone in his foot in October against the Indianapolis Colts. Initially, the thought was to let it heal naturally, but then the decision was reversed to address it surgically.
"It's a Jones re-fracture and now I'm in the position where I got it fixed up and now I'll be back," Johnson said. "It's just a bad-luck thing. I'll bounce back from it. I learned a lot from it."
Johnson's loss represented a major blow to the Texans' top-ranked defense, but they carried on well without him due to the presence of cornerbacks A.J. Bouye, Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson. In two NFL seasons, Johnson has recorded 73 tackles, 12 passes defended, one interception and one fumble recovery.
Drafted in the first round last year out of Wake Forest, Johnson is a huge factor for a Texans defense that could potentially lose A.J. Bouye in free agency.
"I was doing some good things and it's something to build on," Johnson said. "How I want to come back is something to look forward to."
10/22/16 - CB Kevin Johnson was placed on injured reserve Saturday, two days before clash at the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos. Johnson suffered a broken foot in Houston's overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts last weekend. A former first-round draft pick out of Wake Forest in 2015, Johnson started and played well against the Colts. The Texans have been ravaged in the defensive backfield, but are hopeful that corner Johnathan Joseph (forearm) will return to the lineup for Monday's game versus Denver.
10/17/16 - CB Kevin Johnson broke his foot against the Colts on Sunday, and he will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
He got X-rays after the game to confirm the initial diagnosis.
Johnson played through the injury. Missing only one snap during the game and recording 10 tackles, but he was limping badly afterward at NRG Stadium.
