Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Johnson was on the field for just under half of the offensive snaps but continued to see little to no use. His one catch was in the third quarter, and was the first time Sam Bradford had looked for him all day.

2016 Week 16 vs GB (4 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Johnson continues to be marginalized in the current offense, though two of his targets were on deeper passes. However, it appeared as if he and Sam Bradford weren't on the same page as Johnson didn't seem to be where Bradford expected him to be.

2016 Week 15 vs IND (5 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)

Once Adam Thielen went down with a neck injury, Johnson actually managed to step up. He caught every one of his targets, but only one was for a significant gain, a 17-yard reception late in the first quarter. Every other pass was on a shallow cross or drag route, and he rarely was able to gain much in the way of yards after the catch.

2016 Week 14 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Johnson had a nice catch on a short pass late in the fourth quarter for a first down. He was not much of a factor otherwise.

2016 Week 13 vs DAL (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)

Johnson continues to be an absolute non-factor. He was a target on two longer throws, one along the sideline in the red zone which was batted away by the defender and another along the opposite sideline which just went off his fingertips.

2016 Week 12 vs DET (2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Johnson couldn't even get a larger share of work with Stefon Diggs out, and continues to be a non-entity in the offense.

2016 Week 9 vs DET (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Johnson continues to be a disappointment, and now even the few passes thrown his way don't seem to be caught. He is far behind the rest of the unit in the pecking order.

2016 Week 8 vs CHI (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Johnson was wide open--almost five yards--downfield but Sam Bradford threw a tremendously underthrown ball which was nearly picked off. Otherwise, Johnson was very quiet.

2016 Week 5 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Johnson has now become Cordarrelle Patterson--rarely targeted and stuck returning kicks. He caught his single target, but is clearly not a factor even with Stefan Diggs out.

2016 Week 4 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 70 / 0 rec)

So far this season Charles Johnson has been invisible, struggling to gain separation and to hold onto the ball when he finally got targets. He saw little action Monday as well, with the first pass sailing over his head and the second just a bit in front of him. He and quarterback Sam Bradford did hook up in the fourth quarter on a 40-yard pass. On the play, Johnson threw a double move on the cornerback, and have five yards on the defender when Bradford delivered the ball. He had to slow down just a touch, which allowed the safety to come over, preventing him from reaching the end zone before getting tackled.

2016 Week 3 vs CAR (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

In the midst of a brutal start to the season, Charles Johnson is becoming the odd man out in the offense. His first target was nearly picked off as linebacker Luke Kuechly jumped the route and forced a deflection which was nearly snagged by the Panthers. His second and last target was a perfectly thrown pass down the sideline which he dropped. Johnson was wide open, with the coverage several yards behind him, but when the ball got there Johnson must have seen corner Darryl Worley coming and lost concentration. Worley got a hand on Johnson, which might have caused some problems but it was a catch Johnson should have made.

2016 Week 2 vs GB (2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Johnson was on the field for 40 offensive snaps but was targeted just two times. A year after it seemed he was poised to break out big, Johnson is struggling to create space and separation. Adam Thielen is seeing more targets and you have to wonder when we might see more of rookie Laquan Treadwell.

2016 Week 1 vs TEN (6 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

You know it was a disappointing day when you have the same number of catches as Cordarrelle Patterson. Johnson was targeted more often, but struggled to separate on his routes and seemed a little slow.
