Kevin Johnson to IR with concussion

Texans' starting cornerback suffered his second concussion of the season in a Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

The Texans do not have great depth at cornerback so this could be a pass defense to target in fantasy. Aaron Colvin could play more on the outside and safeties Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu both have experience at corner.

Kevin Johnson suffers second concussion this season

Kevin Johnson suffered a pretty brutal looking concussion in Week 1 against the Patriots. Johnson had just come back from a concussion earlier this preseason.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson does not hold any fantasy value and may have a difficult time sticking on the roster at this point given his durability issues.

Kevin Johnson exits game against 49ers with concussion

Kevin Johnson was hurt in the first quarter after landing awkwardly and hitting his head against the turf. He was able to walk off on his own power after being down for minutes, but was diagnosed with a concussion and will enter the protocol.

Fantasy Impact

It was a worrisome moment for the cornerback and while concussions are never good, it's early enough in the preseason where he could be ready for the start of the season, if not sooner.

Houston Texans pick Kevin Johnson with 16th pick

The Texans chose Kevin Johnson 16th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. The former Wake Forest DB started every game last season and allowed just 24 completions.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson joins the defense of the Houston Texans, a D/ST favorite. Parker weighs in on the small side (6'1",188 lbs), which may hinder his role as a run supporter. However, Johnson does has the cover skills to help the team right away. Team defense leaguers have no reason to shy away from the Texans in 2015.

Wake Forest Kevin Johnson works out with the Baltimore Ravens

Cornerback Kevin Johnson has a work out session with the Baltimore Ravens at the training facility, according to an article by Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Johnson also visited with the Dallas Cowboys and had a dinner meeting with Pittsburgh Steelers GM.

Fantasy Impact

Baltimore recently extended the contract of Jimmy Smith. After last year's collapse of the secondary, the team will have an interest in strengthening their stock. Johnson is a lightweight at 6'0', 188 pounds, but he can stick with a receiver in man coverage and has good eye-hand coordination when catching passes. He has a great athletic ability that never missed a game while playing in college.
