Trumaine Johnson on Ankle Injury
The Rams will gladly welcome Johnson back slightly ahead of schedule. The cornerback was expected to miss four to six weeks when he originally went down with the injury.
Johnson spoke about his ankle during the week, saying he could have easily broken it, but feels good and was expecting to play when he spoke on Friday, according to Greg Beacham of the Associated Press, per Yahoo:
”I’ve been testing it all week, and I feel good, so we’ll see,” Johnson said Friday. ”I’m just ready to play, man. I’m tired of losing. I sit out there and I watch my teammates, but I’m ready to get back.”
”It’s just part of the game,” Johnson said. ”I could have broken it.”
Los Angeles is certainly happen Johnson didn’t break it. He’s been the best player in the secondary this season when healthy and his return after two full games out is a big boost for the Rams.
