Raiders place CB Chris Johnson on Reserve/NFI List

The Oakland Raiders announced that they have placed cornerback Chris Johnson on the “Reserve/Non-Football Illness” list.

Johnson opened the 2011 season as the starter opposite Standford Routt, totaling 11 tackles, three passes defensed and a forced fumble before missing eight games with groin and hamstring injuries. Johnson returned to the lineup for the team’s December 4 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but left the team last week after his mother was shot and sister was murdered by his sister’s ex-boyfriend in Texas.

Johnson did not play in Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers and was ruled out for tomorrow’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Roster move: Defensive end Mason Brodine has been promoted from the practice squad to replace Johnson on the 53-man roster.
