Ty Johnson makes Jets 53-man roster

August 31st, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Ty Johnson, a standout at Fort Hill and the University of Maryland, made the New York Jets 53-man roster on Tuesday. The Cumnberland Times News reports the Jets waived 27 players to meet the roster limit, but Johnson wasn't one of them. The running back, who was drafted in the sixth round (186th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions, is entering his fifth season in the league. Johnson dealt with a hamstring injury during training camp, and that seemed to limit his production during the preseason when he rushed for 23 yards on 10 carries and made one catch for three yards.
