News: Johnson has nothing but good things to say about the condition of his right knee, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. "In practice (last year), I wasn't able to do any lateral moves," Johnson said. "(Now), I've been able to do lateral moves and stuff like that with no problem. I feel good." Impact: Johnson tore the meniscus in his right knee last season in Week 3, and it bothered him for the rest of the year. Johnson underwent arthroscopic surgery in January and sat out the entire offseason, building up his knee for camp. So far, so good. Granted, players aren't always the best source of information about their own bodies, rehabs and schedules, but it's still better than hearing negative things about such topics.(RotoWire, )

News: Johnson was a full participant at practice for the first time since joining the New York Jets after recovering from offseason knee surgery. Impact: Johnson signed with the Jets in April and said Thursday his right knee feels good. He had surgery to repair torn cartilage after playing with the injury most of last year. He ran for 1,077 yards, the second-lowest total of his career. He rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 with Tennessee.(STATS, 3:58pm)

News: Johnson (knee) has been medically cleared by Dr. James Andrews to participate in training camp, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Johnson has already impressed Jets brass with his speed during conditioning drills Wednesday, and will look to continue to make an impression as contact drills are gradually eased into the mix. The Jets took a risk on Johnson when they signed him to a two-year deal just two months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus, but as it currently stands, the gamble is looking like it may pay off. The 28-year-old Johnson is coming off a season in which he posted the second lowest rushing total of his career, along with a career-worst 3.9 YPC, but he's eager to prove the doubters wrong. Johnson will likely be pushed for reps by Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell, but the veteran arguably has the most raw talent out of this group, even at his age. Regardless, Johnson will be comfortable with any role he's given, and will look to make the most of his opportunities. "I'm ready to do whatever they ask me to do," he stated.(RotoWire, )
