  • Johnson beat out John Skelton for the Bengals' backup QB job. Johnson hasn't had meaningful action in a regular season game since the 2011 season and hasn't thrown more than 100 passes in a season since 2009. Though the Bengals hope that remains true this year, he played well in the preseason at least. 2013-09-01 11:22:41 -0400

  • Johnson completed 9-of-14 passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 50 yards on five carries against the Chargers on Thursday. It was Johnson, not Scott Tolzien, who was the first quarterback off the bench this time which was somewhat unexpected. Given a legitimate chance to compete for the number three job, Johnson played a strong game hitting Nathan Palmer on a 51-yard touchdown pass and Garrett Celek on a quick, three-yard strike. Most expected Tolzien to already have the job in his pocket so it will be interesting to see how much weight this game has on coach Jim Harbaugh's ultimate decision. 2012-08-31 03:56:33 -0400

  • Coming off the bench as the number three quarterback, Johnson was 4-for-6 in passing for 64 yards against the Texans on Saturday. Johnson is competing with Scott Tolzien for the number three job for the 49ers, a job that likely won't be decided until close to the end of camp. He had a few nice moments during the game, including a scramble for five yards, but did misfire on a deep pass to a wide-open A.J. Jenkins. 2012-08-19 14:19:50 -0400

  • Johnson will be the No. 3 quarterback off the bench during the 49ers next exhibition game, the Sacramento Bee reports. With Alex Smith entrenched as the starter and coach Jim Harbaugh citing that Colin Kaepernick is the backup, Johnson and Scott Tolzien will spend the rest of camp competing for the number three spot. Tolzien was third off the bench in the first game with Johnson handling mop-up duty to close it out. 2012-08-15 16:33:59 -0400

  • Johnson has fallen to fourth on the depth chart and is looking to make a bigger impression during camp and upcoming exhibition games, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. When the 49ers signed the four-year veteran back in March, it was believed that he would be Colin Kaepernick's primary competition for the back-up job to Alex Smith. However, Scott Tolzien has made a big impact, both in camp and as the third quarterback off the bench in the first exhibition game, while Johnson was relegated to mop-up duty late in the fourth quarter. If things remain as they are, Johnson faces the possibility of not making the 53-man roster, so he plans to make the most of his preseason opportunities, whenever they come. "All I really care about is the opportunity to go out and compete and show what I can do," Johnson said. "Whatever happens is going to happen. It's out of my control...All I want to do is go out there, lead the offense, put good things on tape and let the chips fall where they fall. That's the NFL." 2012-08-14 12:04:41 -0400
