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

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

News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Bears.

News: Johnson (ankle) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Bears, ESPN.com reports. Impact: The probable designation suggests that Johnson (who has 25 carries for 89 yards in two games) is in line to suit up Monday, and set to work in tandem with Chris Ivory (23 carries for 145 yards and two TDs to date). They'll take aim at a Chicago defense that has allowed 320 rushing yards through two contests out of the gate.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) was limited at practice Friday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Impact: We'll revisit Johnson's status Saturday, but a probable injury designation would no doubt be of comfort to his fantasy owners in advance of Monday night's contest against the Bears.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson (ankle) was limited at Thursday's practice, NJ.com reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )
