Rams GM Les Snead declined to say if free agent CB Trumaine Johnson will be re-signed.
"That will be a big decision," Snead said. "Probably one of the top priorities when Wade [Phillips] walks in the door because, obviously, the magnitude of what his contract will look like and what another franchise tag looks like and everything in between." Johnson took a step back last year, but is still the Rams’ best outside corner. He would cost $16.8 million if franchised in 2017. Jan 28 - 8:07 PM

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports the Rams have been expected to let CB Trumaine Johnson test the market in free agency.

Robinson specifically said the Rams have been expected to let Jeff "Fisher guys" walk in free agency, although he did add new coach Sean McVay and new DC Wade Phillips could have something to say about that. Phillips relies heavily on corners in his scheme, so he might not be happy to see the best corner on the roster walk out the door. Johnson played this season under the terms of the franchise tag.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (ankle) is active for Week 9 against the Panthers.

It's a big boost for the Rams' inconsistent defense. Johnson missed Weeks 6 and 7 before the Rams' bye. Inactive for the Rams are QB Sean Mannion, DB Dwayne Gratz, OL Jamon Brown, OT Pace Murphy, TE Temarrick Hemingway, WR Nelson Spruce and DE Matt Longacre.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (questionable, ankle) plans to play in Week 9 against the Panthers.

Johnson is four weeks into his 4-6 week timetable. He’s on track to return coming off a bye. Getting Johnson back is a huge boost to the Rams’ secondary.

According to ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez, LCB Trumaine Johnson (ankle) has a "realistic chance" of playing Week 9 against the Panthers.

Johnson was limited at Wednesday's practice but coach Jeff Fisher said it was only because the team held him back. "He wanted more," said Fisher. "That'll give you some idea." All signs point to Johnson returning Sunday following a two-game absence. It will be a big upgrade for the Rams' secondary.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (ankle) could return in Week 9.

Johnson has missed two games with his high-ankle sprain. With Robert Quinn and William Hayes returning last week, the Rams defense should be close to fully healthy coming off their bye.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.

Johnson is expected to miss multiple weeks with his high-ankle sprain. His loss is going to be a major downgrade to the Rams' defense, but they're still a back-end starting option. Troy Hill will start opposite E.J. Gaines in base sets.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 04:45:00 PM'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.

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.

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.

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.
