ECU's Chris Johnson Practices Fully With Jets

CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - Running back Chris Johnson was a full participant at practice for the first time since joining the New York Jets after recovering from offseason knee surgery.

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.

Johnson fumbled a handoff but showed some of the speed that made him of one of the league's fastest players. He also lined up a handful of times at receiver, a spot where he could be frequently used with the Jets.
