Trumaine Johnson expected to return against Bills, bolstering Jets secondary

“Last year… I’ve never seen a rookie running back handle protections like him,” Bates said. “A lot of times when you have a young back, protections are one thing that keeps him off the field. They can run, they can catch, but (they struggle with) the protection. There are a lot of different schemes defensively and he picked that up extremely fast last year. Some guys just see 11 defenders and understand football. It’s almost like some people can play chess and checkers. He can play football mentally in his head and it makes it easy for him.”
