Date:

Bucs CB Leonard Johnson exited Monday night's preseason game with an ankle injury.

Competing for sub-package snaps behind starters Alterraun Verner and Johnthan Banks, Johnson may be the front-runner for nickel duties. Veterans Sterling Moore and Mike Jenkins are also in the mix with Johnson.

Buccaneers re-signed CB Leonard Johnson.

Johnson regressed in 2014, struggling against man coverage. He's only 24 though, so there's room for improvement. He'll slide in at nickelback alongside starting corners Johnthan Banks and Alterraun Verner. Johnson had been a restricted free agent.

Leonard Johnson is listed as the Bucs' starting corner opposite Darrelle Revis on the team's first unofficial depth chart.

Johnson is ahead of second-round rookie Johnthan Banks. It could be based on seniority, but there's also a real chance Johnson is viewed in-house as the favorite to man the right corner spot. He's a smallish, slowish, short-armed cover corner, but Johnson is a very willing tackler and packs a punch.

Bucs CB Leonard Johnson was forced from Tampa's Week 16 game against the Rams with an arm injury, and is questionable to return.

The undrafted rookie was making his fourth start in five games. Anthony Gaitor and Danny Gorrer are now on at cornerback for the Bucs' league-worst pass defense.

Undrafted rookie Leonard Johnson will start in place of an inactive CB Eric Wright (Achilles) versus the Falcons in Week 12.

We're placing the Bucs inactives under Johnson to once again emphasize that matchups don't get any better than the one facing Atlanta's passing attack this week. The rest of Tampa Bay's inactives: RB Michael Smith, S Cody Grimm, LB Najee Goode, C Cody Wallace, WR David Douglas, and DT Matthew Masifilo.
