Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson has now moved into WR Cordarrelle Patterson's role as the second receiver, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. 'CJ is playing at a high level,' Turner said. 'CJ is the starter at X (receiver). That's the position Cordarrelle plays. We're going to do what we can to give him some opportunities to play there, but CJ's playing at a real high level right now.'
Huddle Up: Talk about players headed in opposite directions: Johnson has 11 catches for 180 yards and a TD over the last three games while Patterson has four grabs for 42 yards and no scores. Johnson and Greg Jennings -- in that order -- are the Vikings' WRs you want right now.

The Cleveland Browns have placed WR Charles X. Johnson, OT Martin Wallace and OG Karim Barton on no-recall waivers. The Browns also claimed WR LaRon Byrd off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys
Huddle Up: Johnson, appeared on a few early sleeper lists after a strong start to camp, but the buzz quickly faded. Now, the three wideouts currently listed behind starters Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins are Byrd, Travis Benjamin and Gabriel Taylor. Yikes!
