Jets beat writer Rich Cimini sees RB Chris Johnson's stock falling:
Let's call it like it is: After three games, Chris Ivory looks a lot better than Johnson, who was held to 34 yards on 10 carries by a suspect Chicago run defense.
Johnson, a former 2,000-yard runner, hasn't demonstrated any of the explosiveness that once made him the most feared back in the sport. It's a new system, and he's coming off knee surgery, so it's too soon to panic. But his average after three games (3.5 per carry) is 2 yards less than Ivory.
The two have essentially split carries and while Ivory has looked better, he's also produced more. The Jets have some tough matchups coming up and Johnson is no longer looking like an attractive lineup option.
