Lions' Ty Johnson: Flashes in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson rushed three times for 22 yards during Detroit's preseason opener Thursday against the Patriots. He was targeted once in the passing game but did not record a reception.

Johnson notably entered the game before Zach Zenner and he flashed a couple of times with a pair of double-digit-yard runs, though one of them was called back because of a penalty. Meanwhile, Zenner rushed three times for 13 yards and Mark Thompson rushed four times for 21 yards. Clearly the most impressive of the bunch Thursday, the electric Johnson has drawn positive reviews throughout training camp and he seems to be making a good argument to open the year as the No. 3 RB behind Kerryon Johnson and C.J. Anderson.

Lions' Ty Johnson: Drafted by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions selected Johnson in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 186th overall.

Johnson (5-foot-10, 208 pounds) is an intriguing prospect who boasted both explosion and versatility at Maryland, where he regularly saw the field from the start of his freshman season. His best season arguably came as a sophomore when Johnson set a school record with 9.1 yards per carry on 110 totes, but he also took a kickoff to the house as both a junior and senior. However, the undersized tailback didn't prove himself well as a third-down option, which could play a role in limiting Johnson's contributions to special teams at the next level.
