Kerryon Johnson works out for Packers

Down to just two healthy running backs, the Packers brought in former Lions RB Kerryon Johnson for a workout on Tuesday. Aaron Jones sustained a sprained MCL in Week 10, and Kylin Hill tore his ACL in Week 8, leaving A.J. Dillon and former UDFA Patrick Taylor as the only healthy members of Green Bay's RB corps.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear whether the Packers plan to bring in other RBs for workouts. Dillon seems destined for heavy workloads as long as Jones remains sidelined. If the Packers sign Johnson, he could conceivably jump past Taylor on the depth chart. Johnson has 283 NFL carries and Taylor has two.

Kerryon Johnson elevated to 49ers active roster

Kerryon Johnson was elevated the 49ers active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Trey Sermon was cleared from concussion protocol and should get the start with Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) doubtful. Johnson, Trenton Cannon and the newly signed Jaques Patrick are the healthy running backs for San Francisco alongside Sermon.

Kerryon Johnson signed to the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad

Former free agent running back Kerryon Johnson has reportedly been signed to the San Francisco 49ers practice squad on Tuesday, per Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson was brought in by the Philadelphia Eagles but failed to solidify a role in a crowded backfield. As a result, he is signing with the 49ers, who lean heavily on their running backs to keep their West Coast offensive zone-blocking scheme functioning properly. After the season-ending surgery that Raheem Mostert is set to undergo, adding a veteran running back to the practice squad holds little fantasy value. However, should injuries continue within the 49ers' backfield, Johnson could receive an opportunity to earn game reps on one of the most run-centric teams in the league.

Kerryon Johnson works out for Raiders on Tuesday

Free agent RB Kerryon Johnson worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Eagles waived Johnson from IR earlier this summer. Johnson would serve as nothing more than RB depth if he winds up in Las Vegas.

Kerryon Johnson (knee) waived from IR by Eagles via injury settlement

Former Philadelphia Eagles RB Kerryon Johnson has been waived from Injured Reserve (IR) with an injury settlement. This will allow Johnson to sign with another team once he's back to full-health, per Field Yates.

Fantasy Impact

In May, Johnson was signed off of waivers by the Eagles but was recently placed on IR before being waived by the team via injury settlement. The fourth-year running back had his best season with Detroit as a rookie in 2018, averaging 5.4 YPC and scoring four total touchdowns across 10 games. Expect a team to eventually sign the injury-prone running back once he is able to fully recover from a knee injury he sustained this summer.
