  • Ty Johnson: Joins Buffalo's practice squad

    Johnson signed with the Bills' practice squad Wednesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    Johnson will provide organizational depth for Buffalo behind a relatively unproven backfield consisting of James Cook, Damien Harris and Latavius Murray. The former Maryland running back has appeared in 62 games between the Lions and Jets since joining the professional ranks in 2019.

  • Ty Johnson: Let go by Bills

    Johnson was released by Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Johnson signed with the Bills last Monday and rushed 11 times for 51 yards in the team's preseason finale against the Bears. That performance wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the 53-man roster, though he could end up on Buffalo's practice squad.

  • Bills' Ty Johnson: Set to sign with Buffalo

    Johnson agreed to a deal with the Bills on Monday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    The report notes that Johnson, who was released by the Jets with a non-football injury designation in April, has moved past a pectoral injury that he had been dealing with. Now that he's healthy, the 2019 sixth-rounder is in a position to help fill the void created by Nyheim Hines' season-ending knee injury. In that context, Johnson should have a chance to compete for third-down work in a Buffalo backfield that also includes James Cook, Damien Harris and Latavius Murray.

  • Ty Johnson: Recovering from pec injury

    Johnson announced via his Instagram account that he recently suffered a pectoral injury, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Johnson was released by the Jets with a non-football injury designation in April after he tore his pectoral while working out on his own. After he followed the advice of the team and underwent surgery, New York elected to let him go. The running back played in 17 games last season, recording 160 yards and a score on 30 carries while reeling in 12 catches for 88 yards. Once healthy, Johnson will likely get another opportunity to crack an active roster.

  • Ty Johnson: Released by New York

    The Jets released Johnson (undisclosed) on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPCR 2 Houston reports.

    Johnson will head to free agency after being released with a non-football injury designation. The 2019 sixth-round pick played in all 17 games on both offense and special teams for the Jets last season, logging 30 carries for 160 yards and one touchdown in addition to 12 catches for 88 yards. Johnson will now look to get healthy and find another opportunity for a new team.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Back with the Jets

    Johnson is signing a one-year deal to remain with the Jets, Rich Cimini of reports.

    In 17 games with the Jets during the 2022 season, Johnson recorded 30 carries for 160 yards and one touchdown, while adding 12 catches (on 24 targets) for 88 yards. Now that he's back with the team for 2023, Johnson is slated to reprise his depth role in New York's backfield behind Breece Hall (knee), Michael Carter and Zonovan Knight. The 2019 sixth-rounder is also a key special teamer for the Jets, per Cimini.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Minimal role throughout 2022

    Johnson rushed five times for 12 yards and caught two of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. He wrapped up the 2022 season with 30 carries for 160 yards and one touchdown, as well as 12 catches for 88 yards on 24 targets.

    Johnson set career lows in both rushing and receiving yards in his fourth NFL season, though he averaged a career-high 5.3 yards per carry. The 25-year-old running back out of Maryland will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Jets' Ty Johnson: Leading rusher in Seattle

    Johnson carried the ball eight times for 46 yards and caught one of five targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 23-6 loss to the Seahawks.

    It was a nightmarish performance from the entire Jets offense in a must-win game, and Johnson wound up leading the team in rushing yards. It's only the second time all season he's topped 17 rushing yards, and with New York now eliminated from playoff contention, it's not clear how the backfield workload will be split between Johnson, Zonovan Knight and Michael Carter in Week 18 against the Dolphins.
