Kerryon Johnson Heading To Injured Reserve

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) underwent a procedure on Tuesday morning and will miss at least eight weeks while on injured reserve. After many had hoped that the 22-year-old would be in store for a breakout season, Johnson disappointed by compiling just 308 yards and three total touchdowns while averaging a subpar 3.3 yards per carry throughout six games. With his season potentially over, Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic will take over, with Johnson potentially getting the bulk of the carries on the ground and McKissic being involved catching passes out of the backfield. How exactly the time will be split is unknown at the moment in addition to the team also rumored to make a deal before the trade deadline.

Kerryon Johnson, Darius Slay Questionable To Return

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (knee), cornerback Darius Slay (hamstring) and defensive tackle Damon Harrison (undisclosed) were all injured in Week 7 against the Vikings and are questionable to return. Johnson left in the second quarter and was later seen on the sidelines with a brace on his right knee, so his day is likely done. Detroit's defense takes an obvious hit with both Slay and Harrison out. Johnson had five carries for 23 yards in the game before suffering the knee injury. He missed his only target in the passing game. If Johnson's injury is serious enough to keep him out in Week 8, J.D. McKissic and Ty Johnson would split the backfield duties for Detroit.

Kerryon Johnson A Mid-Range RB2 In Tough Week 7 Matchup

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson was given the keys to the Lions backfield but has yet to impress fantasy owners who spent an early-round draft pick on the 22-year-old. Johnson is averaging a measly 3.3 YPC and has seen just 13 targets through the air over five games. Disappointing to say the least. Johnson was given just 13 touches in Week 6, and against a stout Vikings run defense that has allowed just one 100-yard rusher and one rushing touchdown this season, fantasy owners should prepare for a potentially disastrous week. Consider Johnson an RB2 in this matchup with hopes he finds the end zone.
