Chris Johnson to miss New York Jets' OTA's

Published Add your comment

Former 2,000 yard running-back Chris Johnson is hoped to be the saviour of the New York Jets rushing game during the 2014 NFL season, but his preparations for the next campaign aren't going according to plan.

Johnson was acquired by the Jets on a two-year-deal worth $8 million, but now he will sit out the OTA's with his new team.

This isn't something that Jets fans should be too worried about yet. Last year when he was with the Tennessee Titans, Johnson struggled through with a meniscus injury that he suffered in Week 3.

According to reports, that injury is still bothering CJ, and it will leave him out of action for the time being.

But a fit and raring to go Johnson gives the Jets a great chance to prosper during the 2014 NFL season. Chris Ivory is the back-up tailback for the Jets as well, meaning if they can keep those two both on the field they should be dominant in the run game next season.
