Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Slow to recover from his preseason MCL sprain, Johnson couldn't get healthy during St. Louis' Week 4 bye. Rookie E.J. Gaines will continue to make starts.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson has a sprained MCL and is expected to miss six weeks.

It's actually good news after Johnson was carted off in noticeable pain Saturday night. It had the looks of a possible season-ending injury. Johnson will certainly miss the opener, and may not be available before Week 2 or 3. The Rams may choose to hold him out through the Week 4 bye. Second-year CB Brandon McGee will likely fill in opposite Janoris Jenkins for the first few weeks of the season. The Johnson injury is a reminder to avoid overdrafting the Rams' fantasy defense, which boasts a talented front four but is leaky in the back seven.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson was carted off with an apparent left knee injury in Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Johnson got blown up by one of his own teammates. It had the looks of a serious injury. Johnson buried his head in a towel as he was towed to the locker room. The Rams are thin behind Johnson and fellow starter Janoris Jenkins, with Brandon McGee and sixth-rounder E.J. Gaines serving as the only real depth. The team also has safety/nickel hybrids Lamarcus Joyner and Rodney McLeod.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson is a player the team wants to "let breathe" a bit in 2014.

It's part of the reason the Rams released CB Cortland Finnegan earlier this month. They want Johnson and RCB Janoris Jenkins to take the next step in their development and not have to look over their shoulders at a veteran like Finnegan. Johnson has the size (6-foot-2, 208) that every team looks for. Quarterbacks managed just a 74.5 passer rating while throwing at Johnson last season.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson was forced from St. Louis' Week 12 game against the Bears with a concussion, and will not return.

With Cortland Finnegan on injured reserve, it leaves the Rams with just Janoris Jenkins and Brandon McGee at cornerback. In the middle of an up-and-down year, Johnson is week to week.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson missed the entire practice week with an illness.

The Rams are severely banged up in the secondary. Cortland Finnegan (hamstring) is listed as doubtful, SS T.J. McDonald broke his leg last Thursday, FS Rodney McLeod exited Week 4 early, and No. 4 CB Brandon McGee is battling a hamstring injury. If Blaine Gabbert can get some time to throw Sunday -- that's a big "if" -- Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon could have nice days.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson has "been a bit inconsistent" during training camp.

Johnson appeared in all 16 games and made three starts as a rookie, but is in danger of losing playing time to Brandon McGee this season. McGee worked with the first-team defense Friday and could overtake Johnson for nickel duties if he continues to show well in camp.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson has been arrested on drunk driving charges in Missoula, Montana.

Jail records show he was booked at 3:05AM Friday for a misdemeanor DUI. Johnson posted $700 bond roughly an hour later. The 65th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Johnson was St. Louis' nickel back for the second half of last season. He was red flagged for character issues coming out of D-IAA Montana.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson was forced from Sunday's game against the Packers with a hip injury, and is questionable to return.

Johnson took a huge hit on a kick return, but walked off the field under his own power. He appeared to moving around fine on the sideline, but is likely done for the day. The No. 65 pick, Johnson has played 42 snaps through the Rams' first six games.

Rams third-round DB Trumaine Johnson missed Wednesday's practice after oversleeping.

Johnson didn't hear his alarm clock go off and missed his flight from Stockton, California to St. Louis. He won't be fined, but it's not the way to start off a career under Jeff Fisher. Johnson is in the mix for nickel corner duties and there's also speculation that he could be moved to safety.

Rams agreed to terms with No. 65 overall pick DB Trumaine Johnson on a four-year contract.

The Rams now have all 10 of their draft picks under contract. Johnson was a four-year starter at cornerback for small-school Montana, but there's heavy speculation he'll be moved to safety. If that's the case, he'll have an outside shot at emerging as a Week 1 starter opposite FS Quintin Mikell.

According to Pro Football Weekly, "there continues to be speculation" that the Rams will move third-round DB Trumaine Johnson to safety.

Johnson was a four-year starter at cornerback in college, but could be in for a position switch depending on how he performs in camp. If Johnson made the transition, he could compete for the starting job across from Quintin Mikell.

Rams selected Montana DB Trumaine Johnson with the No. 65 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Johnson is 6-foot-2 and over 200 pounds, and he's likely ticketed for safety in St. Louis after spending four years as a starting cornerback in D-IAA. A dominant playmaker -- which is what you want from a small-schooler -- Johnson picked off 15 passes in his college career. Coach Jeff Fisher could use Johnson as a center-field type safety a la old Titans FS Michael Griffin, while Quintin Mikell moves to strong safety.

The Boston Globe "hears" that the Patriots will target defensive backs and running backs in the draft's second round.

New England picks at 48 and 62. Montana CB/S Trumaine Johnson is a player in which they showed pre-draft interest, and the Globe mentions Isaiah Pead, LaMichael James, Lamar Miller, and Chris Polk, among others, as possible tailback targets. The Pats routinely use a heavy backfield rotation. They're looking to add competition for Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, and Danny Woodhead.
