A sixth round pick by Detroit in April, Johnson’s 10 carries nearly equaled the 13 he accumulated going into Sunday and his four receptions were the same amount he caught in the first five games. CBS Sports believes that he needs to be picked up as he will continue to receive more playing time as starting running back Kerryon. Johnson left Sunday’s game with a knee injury.
Kerryon Johnson on a stationary bike behind the Lions bench with a brace on his right knee while Ty Johnson is in the game at running back. The brace is new. Might explain why Ty Johnson is getting more work today. Something to keep paying attention to. https://t.co/Mtzal9xOmI— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) October 20, 2019
