Chris Johnson scored a one yard touchdown for the New York Jets in their 13-10 win over Indianapolis Thursday night in New Jersey.
It was also Johnson’s only yard rushing in the game.
Johnson finished with one yard on three carries. He also caught two passes for 16 yards, but it was hardly an explosive start for the back who once rushed for over 2,000 yards in a single season for the Tennessee Titans.
Faced with an $8 million salary, the Titans waived Johnson before the season and drafted rookie Bishop Sankey in the second round.
After topping 2,000 yards in the 2009 season, Johnson has not rushed for more than 1,300 and also saw a dramatic drop in his yards per carry.
Most alarming last season for the Titans was a dramatic drop off in the big plays Johnson was famous for.
Johnson complained of a lack of attempts and a lack of continuity in Tennessee as the Titans went through three offensive coordinators in three years.
