NFL running back says Jets released him after surgery that team told him to get

May 22, 2023

The New York Jets released running back Ty Johnson in April despite signing him to a one-year deal in free agency, and the veteran revealed it came after the team told him to get surgery on an offseason injury.

Johnson said he tore his pectoral muscle while working out in the offseason, and after consulting with the team doctor, they told him to "get it fixed."

"Saw the team doctor. He was like, ‘You need to get it fixed,’" Johnson said in an Instagram video. "Flew out the next day. Came back happy that I got it done, even though I didn’t want to get it done. That following Wednesday, you out of there."
