Date:'s Ian Rapoport reports Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson will be sidelined a "few weeks" with a high-ankle sprain.

A high-ankle sprain was always the most likely diagnosis after a fracture was ruled out. Johnson will miss multiple games, something the Rams tacitly confirmed by claiming CB Dwayne Gratz off waivers. It's a big loss, as Johnson has been amongst the best corners in the league this season. It means more snaps for E.J. Gaines and Troy Hill, and perhaps Gratz.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (ankle) is believed to have avoided major injury, and escaped with a sprain.

It sounds like the Rams are still awaiting further test results, but that the initial news was good. Even so, Johnson could put no weight as his right leg as he was helped off the field, and almost certainly has a high-ankle sprain. At the very least, he will miss Sunday's game against the Lions.
Oct 10 - 2:50 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it "doesn't sound like" Rams CB Trumaine Johnson suffered a fracture Week 5 against the Bills.

Johnson could not put any weight on his right leg as he left the field in the fourth quarter and was seen on crutches and in a boot after the game. Even if he escaped without a fracture, this has the look of a serious injury. Johnson will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson left Sunday's Week 5 game against the Bills with a right leg injury and did not return.

Johnson couldn't put any weight on his right leg when he exited in the fourth quarter. He was seen on crutches and wearing a protective boot after the game, though coach Jeff Fisher would not comment on his status. We'll pass along more information when it's available.

Pro Football Talk reports the Rams are not expected to reach a long-term deal with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before Friday's deadline.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported the same on Tuesday. Without a long-term agreement, Johnson will play out this season under the terms of the tag, which will pay him $13.952 million. The 26-year-old should cash in next spring if he is allowed to reach free agency.
Jul 14 - 9:18 AM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports it is unlikely the Rams reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before the July 15 deadline.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said it was a "long shot" the two sides would reach an agreement a month ago, and it looks like nothing has changed. Unless something dramatic happens in the next few days, Johnson will play out the season under the tag, which is worth $13.952 million. Only 26, Johnson will be in a great position to cash in next spring.
Jul 12 - 12:15 PM

Rams signed franchise player CB Trumaine Johnson to a one-year, $13.952 million contract.

He'll settle for the franchise tender while the two sides work toward a long-term agreement. With Johnson taken care of, the Rams will now shift their attention to Janoris Jenkins, who is hoping for an annual salary in the $12 million range. That's a steep cost, but Los Angeles has over $45 million in cap space.

Rams assigned the franchise tag to CB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams have chosen Johnson over fellow free agent CB Janoris Jenkins, though they'll almost certainly work to keep Jenkins in the fold ahead of next week's open market. Johnson is locked into $13.952 million for next season. The sides have until July to reach a long-term agreement. Johnson emerged as one of the league's better corners in 2015, and just turned 26 in January.
Mar 1 - 3:41 PM's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams are "leaning toward" franchise tagging free agent CB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams also want to keep free agent Janoris Jenkins, but it sounds like they have a slightly higher grade on Johnson. Jenkins recently changed agents, suggesting he's prepared to hit the open market. With Josh Norman not going anywhere, Jenkins would be the top corner available if he isn't re-signed.
Feb 27 - 5:18 PM

CBS Sports Jason La Canfora reports the Rams will use the franchise tag on either CB Trumaine Johnson or CB Janoris Jenkins.

Both young corners are headed to free agency, and GM Les Snead has said his "priority A" is re-signing both. That goal may not be feasible prior to the March 1 deadline to use the franchise tag, however, meaning the Rams would have to choose. La Canfora reports the organization has yet to make a decision, but he "wouldn't be shocked if they ended up tagging Johnson." Signing one to a long-term deal before Tuesday and tagging the other would be the best-case scenario.

Rams GM Les Snead says his "priority A" is re-signing free agent CBs Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins.

Both players were amongst the better corners in the league last season. Jenkins is the bigger name, but Johnson was arguably the better player in 2015. Jenkins wasn't far behind, however. The Rams have the cap space to retain both players if they're serious about keeping their secondary together.
Feb 25 - 1:13 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas "heard earlier this offseason" the Rams might place the transition tag on free agent LCB Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams' goal is a long-term deal with Johnson, but the transition tag could be a way for Los Angeles to secure Johnson's 2016 rights if a longer agreement can't be reached. Only 26, Johnson is coming off a monster season in which he recorded 17 pass breakups and seven interceptions while earning a top-20 cornerback grade among 118 qualifiers from Pro Football Focus.
Feb 20 - 12:36 PM

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson was benched for the opening series of Sunday's loss for violating team rules.

"Trumaine violated team rules, so I started (Marcus Roberson)," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Not going to go into it; no, it’s between me and Trumaine." Johnson went on to have his second consecutive strong game. It shouldn't be an issue going forward.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 2.

It's an indication Johnson has been cleared. Johnson was having a strong game in Sunday's upset of the Seahawks before going down. Marcus Roberson is No. 3 on the depth chart.
