Report: Chris Johnson could make Jets abandon RB committee
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Jets have repeatedly said they plan on using Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell in a running back committee. But according to the New York Post, if Johnson "shows his old form that committee approach will be thrown out the window. You can count on it."

The paper admits that's a big if. Johnson averaged a career-low 3.9 yards per carry last season and his longest run went 30 yards. The Jets hope that dip in production stemmed from Johnson's knee injury, and not a general decline, the report said.

From camp to the season, Chris Johnson will face limits
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Jets running back Chris Johnson will be kept on a "pitch count" in training camp because he's coming off of torn meniscus surgery. ESPN not only reported that but echoed the sentiment that the Jets will use a running back-by-committee approach even with Johnson joining the team. New York is expected to experiment with the playing time of Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell during the preseason. 

Johnson has had at least 251 carries in each of his first six seasons with the Titans, posting over 1,000 rushing yards in all of them. He's also had at least 1,400 total yards in each of his six seasons. All of that might be in jeopardy given the Jets' plans.

Chris Johnson: 'Of course I have a chip on my shoulder'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jets running back Chris Johnson didn't like the way he was released by the Titans, and he said that will motivate him throughout the season.

"Of course I have a chip on my shoulder," Johnson told the New York Post. "It gives me more motivation to continue to work hard and come here and be that guy I’ve been my whole career. I want to prove [the Titans] wrong. They released me and I want to let them know they made a mistake."

Johnson had a torn meniscus in his left knee fixed, and he expects to be at full strength for training camp, the paper said. He believes he'll provide "a home-run threat" to the Jets offense.

Johnson, 28, has run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his six seasons.

Chris Johnson says he's 'pretty much cleared'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jets running back Chris Johnson says he's "pretty much cleared" by Dr. James Andrews to return to football drills following a visit to the doctor's office in Florida. 

"I wouldn't label myself at 100 percent, but very close," he told NFL.com. "In the 90s."

Johnson wasn't sure if the Jets would take precautions with him in training camp but was sure that so long as he was putting up numbers he'd be the Jets' primary running back this season and not in a full-blown time-share with Chris Ivory and others. 

"Once the season starts and once we're playing and I'm doing my thing, I'm pretty sure if I'm making plays they're going to want to keep handing the ball off to me," Johnson said. "If they want me to continue making plays, I'm pretty sure I can't do that if I'm on the sideline."

Jets don't see Chris Johnson as workhorse
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn conceded Chris Johnson has "got some miles on him" so the team will use him judiciously, reports The Star-Ledger. "We're going to have to be strategic in how we use him, and when we use him, to keep him fresh so that he can be the explosive guy that I know that he can be," Lynn said.

The Jets plan to incorporate Johnson into a rotation with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, the report said. Johnson seems O.K. with being part of a committee.

"This year, it’s about winning," Johnson said after signing with the Jets. "I want to come into a program where I think we could win. And if that’s what the coach feels we [have to do to] win, then that’s what we have to do."
