Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson break out with Jets thin at running back

It took only a day after Jets dynamic rookie running back Breece Hall was lost for the season

to a knee injury for general manager Joe Douglas to pull the trigger

on a trade to bring running back James Robinson in as insurance.

As it turned out, it looks like Douglas might have been a bit too quick on the trigger giving up a conditional fifth-

-round pick for the former Jags back. Because Robinson was a healthy scratch from Sunday’s 31-10 Jets win over the Bears 

at MetLife Stadium and — all due respect to Robinson — he wasn’t missed.

Not with Zonovan Knight, playing in his first NFL game, rushing for 69 yards on 14 carries

and little-used Ty Johnson rushing for 62 yards on five carries, including a 32-yard TD run.

Those two players were on the roster when Robinson was acquired.

And you’d have to figure both will be prominent when the Jets play next Sunday in Minnesota.
