The 23-year-old tailback returns to the NFL after sitting out the 2015 season. Johnson was among the Jaguars' final cuts at the end of training camp last summer, after tallying 86 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his rookie campaign in 2014. The 5-foot-10, 216-pound back, who rushed for 1,139 yards and 14 touchdowns in his senior season at UCF, worked out for the Bucs last week. He'll likely wage a training camp battle with incumbent Mike James for the third running back spot behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims.
After being placed on the Non-Football Injury list on Wednesday,
Johnson and coached Gus Bradley declined to discuss the nature of Johnson's injury, but Bradley said he is considered day to day.
"I'd rather talk about it when I get back on the field," Johnson said.
The team has not revealed the nuture of the problem, but it arose during activities off the field.
Johnson did miss some time this offseason with a back injury.
