New York Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters on Tuesday he foresees Chris Johnson sharing touches with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell this season.
"I definitely think it's going to be a committee approach," Ryan said, according to the New York Daily News.
It's Ryan's first public acknowledgement that Johnson is not currently in line for a featured role. Johnson told Around The League last month that he didn't expect to be part of a time share in New York.
The word 'committee' means different things to different people. We're already assuming that Ivory will get most of the goal-line work, while Johnson figures to be the Jets' lead back. As long as he sees the bulk of the touches in the Jets’ run-heavy offense, Johnson should post fantasy RB2 numbers.
