Jets RB Chris Johnson participated in individual drills Tuesday, as the team opened its three-day mini camp. But he did not participate in any 11-on-11 team periods.
Johnson had spent the Jets’ nine organized team activities just rehabilitating his left knee. He rode a stationary bike and worked with trainers on the sideline. Johnson played through a torn meniscus in the knee last season with the Titans. He underwent surgery in January to repair it.
The Jets want to play it safe with Johnson. They expect him to be a valuable asset to their offense, and perhaps use his speed in tandem with running back Chris Ivory’s power.
