Johnson had five catches for 72 yards in Sunday's loss at Detroit.

Johnson is averaging a very solid 71.0 receiving yards over the last five games. However, he'll be a risky play next week at Miami.

Johnson rewarded owners with four receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win against the Jets.

Johnson has proven to be a valuable pick-up for any owners diligent enough to grab him, recording 15 receptions for 283 yards and two TDs over his last four games.

The Minnesota Vikings have signed receiver Charles Johnson off the Cleveland Browns' practice squad to replace Jerome Simpson. The Vikings announced the move Saturday, two days after they cut Simpson after learning of another arrest this summer. The roster decision left the Vikings thin at receiver, and coach Mike Zimmer hinted Friday that they were in the market to address depth at the position.

Johnson is in his second season out of Grand Valley State. He has experience with the Vikings' offense after playing for offensive coordinator Norv Turner and quarterbacks coach Scott Turner when the father-son tandem was in Cleveland last season. Johnson has yet to appear in an NFL game.
