Buffalo Bills running back Ty Johnson has been elevated to the active roster after the team placed Damien Harris (neck) on IR. Johnson's last action on the field was in Week 18 of last season when he was with the New York Jets. He saw five carries for 12 yards and caught two of his three targets for 13 yards. The 26-year-old has a career average of 4.4 yards per carry but has only scored four times over his four years in the NFL so far. Johnson shouldn't be trusted to start on any fantasy teams at this time as he still will sit behind James Cook and Latavius Murray.

Former New York Jets running back Ty Johnson has recovered from a torn pec and is expected to sign with the Buffalo Bills. Johnson spent the last three seasons with New York, compiling 140 carries for 652 rushing yards, 62 receptions, 559 receiving yards, and seven total offensive touchdowns. He was released by the organization with an injury designation in late April and is now set to join the AFC East foe. Johnson is most likely a depth and special teams signing, so there's likely no reason to worry about the outlooks of James Cook, Damien Harris, and Latavius Murray based on his arrival. He might not even make the final 53-man roster.
