  • Kyron Johnson: Finds new opportunity

    Johnson is signing with the Steelers' practice squad Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Johnson was selected in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Eagles, but he was unable to garner a roster spot after missing much of training camp due to an appendectomy. He did play 16 games with Philadelphia last season, mostly contributing on special teams and recording eight tackles.

  • Kyron Johnson: Joins Birds' practice squad

    Philadelphia signed Johnson (appendix) to its practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Johnson missed the end of the Eagles' training camp due to an appendectomy and subsequently didn't make the 53-man roster, but he's now at least back in the fold. He contributed more on special teams than on defense during his rookie season, so if he's to be elevated to the active roster, it will likely be to contribute on that front.

  • Kyron Johnson: Doesn't make team

    Johnson (appendix) was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Johnson missed the end of training camp due to an appendectomy, which may have been a factor in him missing out on a roster spot. The 25-year-old was a sixth-round pick by Philadelphia in the 2022 Draft and played in 16 games with the team as a rookie, featuring mostly on special teams. Zangaro reports that the Eagles would like to have Johnson back as a member of their practice squad.

  • Eagles' Kyron Johnson: Gets in full practice Wednesday

    Johnson (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Chicago.

    After being forced out of Philadelphia's win at the Giants on Sunday early with a shoulder injury, Johnson appears to be on track to play again in Week 15. The rookie sixth-rounder should continue to see the lion's share of his work on special teams.

  • Eagles' Kyron Johnson: Exits with injury

    Johnson (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Johnson did not record a statistic before departing in the first half. The rookie linebacker had played just two defensive snaps up until last week's lopsided win over the Titans, so his absence likely won't impact the Eagles defense.

  • Eagles' Kyron Johnson: Clears concussion protocol

    The Eagles removed Johnson's (concussion) designation for Sunday's game at Arizona.

Now that he's cleared the concussion protocol, the sixth-round rookie will continue to log most of his snaps on special teams.
