Top Ty Johnson News

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Tops 600 scrimmage yards in 2021

    Johnson finished the 2021 season with 61 carries for 238 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games. He added 34 catches for 372 yards and two touchdowns on 55 targets.

    Johnson handled himself adequately while bouncing up and down the depth chart in the Jets backfield. He's explosive with the ball in his hands but struggled with drops and a lack of awareness, with the low point of his season coming when the ball bounced off Johnson's back for an interception. The 24-year-old running back remains under contract with the Jets through next season, and Johnson is well positioned to make the team's roster in a change-of-pace role unless New York bolsters its backfield depth in the offseason.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Finds end zone after Carter injury

    Johnson rushed five times for 35 yards and a touchdown while catching three of four targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Michael Carter exited the game with a concussion in the first half, leaving Johnson and Austin Walter to split carries with Tevin Coleman on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Johnson had been used sparingly of late but made the most of the extra opportunities, giving the Jets a 24-10 lead with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the third quarter. It was all Buccaneers after that, though. Johnson's usage could decline in Week 18 against the Bills if Carter or Coleman suits up.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Inactive Sunday

    Johnson is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    With Johnson a surprise scratch Sunday, the Jets' Week 15 backfield will be comprised of Michael Carter, Tevin Coleman and Austin Walter.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Gets 10 touches in Week 14 loss

    Johnson rushed six times for 17 yards and caught four of seven targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to New Orleans.

    The Jets were already without Michael Carter (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (concussion) coming in, and Austin Walter was ruled out due to an illness without playing a snap, leaving just Johnson and La'Mical Perine to share backfield snaps. Neither guy got much going on the ground, though Johnson finished as the second-leading receiver in the struggling Jets passing game. He should maintain a prominent role in Week 15 against Miami, though Johnson hasn't made much of his opportunities lately.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Opportunity knocks with Coleman out

    Johnson could take on a larger role Sunday against the Saints, as Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports that Tevin Coleman (concussion) won't play.

    Johnson and Austin Walter likely will split reps in the backfield with Coleman joining Michael Carter (ankle) on the sideline. The Jets have been reluctant to give Johnson much work on the ground, as he's logged more than six rushing attempts only once this season, but he has caught at least five passes on three separate occasions.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Remains stuck behind Coleman

    Johnson rushed once for one yard and caught two of four targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-18 loss to the Eagles.

    Johnson hasn't capitalized on the absence of Michael Carter (ankle), having been out-touched 32-9 by Tevin Coleman over the past two weeks. Coleman will likely receive the lion's share of playing time in New York's backfield against the stout Saints front in Week 14, leaving Johnson in a change-of-pace role once again.
