Johnson (ankle) had just three carries for nine yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.

Johnson also had a short catch and a bad drop, just to wrap up a forgettable game. The Jets realize Chris Ivory is their best back, and Johnson's usage seems to drop off every week. Forget him for Thursday's game at New England.

Johnson was used as a change-of-pace back in Sunday's loss to Detroit, collecting eight touches. Chris Ivory, meanwhile, handled the ball 19 times.

Johnson had a nifty 35-yard touchdown run late in the game, but his other seven chances didn't go anywhere (26 yards). Ivory looks like the player you want in this backfield. The Jets play the Chargers in Week 5.

Johnson (ankle) had 34 yards on 10 carries and no receptions on two targets in Monday's 27-19 loss to the Bears.

Johnson was once again outplayed by Chris Ivory, who had 10 carries for 44 yards and four receptions for 52 yards. The Jets may at some point consider altering the workload accordingly, but for now, we can still expect Johnson and Ivory to split the touches 50/50. Ivory's level of involvement through the air was a bit fluky, but Bilal Powell -- who was used in obvious passing situations -- also looms as a threat to catch a few balls. Next week brings the stingy Detroit run defense, representing one of the tougher matchups Ivory and Johnson will have this season.

Johnson will have an extra day to overcome the ailment as he prepares for Monday's friendly matchup against the weak Chicago run defense. He's been outplayed by Chris Ivory thus far, but both backs figure to see quite a few touches Monday, as the Jets are expected to stick with the committee approach.
