Maryland RB Ty Johnson rushed for 44 yards on seven carries for the East All-Stars in Saturday's 21-17 loss to the West All-Stars in the East-West Shrine Game.
Speedster Johnson averaged 6.3 YPC with a long run of 18 yards while showing off a nice little shake 'n' bake on a few of his rushes. The 5-foot-9, 205-pounder's most obvious plus-trait is his ability to rip off longer gains on the ground. We'll be interested to see just how well his skill-set translates to the NFL -- his testing marks will be key -- as there are some backs who are able to roll when they find holes in college but cannot sustain that success at the next level. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hits up Johnson with a fourth-round grade for the spring. Jan 19 - 6:40 PM

The Athletic's Dane Brugler calls Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson a "sleeper ready to emerge" in his East-West Shrine Game Preview.

Johnson (5'9/205) averaged 7.7 yards on his 66 carries in 2018, but he finished with the third most all-purpose yards (4,196) in Maryland's football history. 1,194 of those yards came on kick returns, and he's expected to compete for kick-return duties in the NFL. However, "it wouldn’t be a surprise" to Brugler if Johnson had a better NFL career than college career as a rusher.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Johnson (5'10/200) battled injuries in 2018, and was usurped by impressive freshman Anthony McFarland as the starter in the Terrapins' backfield. He was still able to rush for 506 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 7.7 yards-per-carry on his 66 attempts in 2018. If Johnson shows he's healthy, he has a chance to be a late-round pick in 2019.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (undisclosed) is dressed and warming up ahead of Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Great news, as Johnson wasn't even listed on the depth chart earlier this week. He exited last week's game against Indiana in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury. He, Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake could divvy carries if all are active.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (undisclosed) is not listed on the depth chart for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Johnson exited Saturday's game against Indiana in the first quarter with an undisclosed injury. The injury is apparently separate from the calf injury that he was dealing with entering the day. The fact that he's not listed on the depth chart would seem to be a strong indication that Johnson will sit this weekend. Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake are the top two backs listed on the depth chart for OSU.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson was forced out injured in the first quarter of Saturday's game against Indiana.

Johnson headed to the injury tent near the end of the first quarter. Given that he was a game-time decision with a calf injury coming into action on Saturday, this isn't the sharpest of developments.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (calf) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Indiana.

Johnson (5'10/212) was considered a game-time call for this one. Looks like that call will be in the affirmative barring a late setback.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (calf) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Indiana.

Johnson (5'10/212) did not play against Michigan State over the weekend due to a calf strain sustained against Illinois the previous game. Should he be unable to take the field versus the Hoosiers upcoming, Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake would figure to receive the majority of carries.
Tue, Nov 6, 2018 03:46:00 PM

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (calf strain) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Michigan State.

Johnson (5'10/212) exited last Saturday's game against Illinois with the injury and was unable to mend in time. With the senior running back out today, Maryland will look to Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake to carry the load against Sparty.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (calf strain) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against Illinois.

Johnson (5'10/212) had just three carries at the time of his departure, rushing for 18 yards. With the senior running back done for the day Maryland will look to Anthony McFarland and Javon Leake, who broke a 64-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, in the running game.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 15 yards on four in Saturday's 23-0 loss to Iowa.

The Terps only managed 115 yards as they were utterly shut down by a combination of Iowa's stout defense and heavy winds in Iowa City. Johnson and fellow lead back Anthony McFarland managed only 15 yards apiece. The 4-2 Terps have a better matchup on deck at home against Illinois.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 132 yards and one touchdown on nine carries in Saturday's 34-7 win over Rutgers.

Johnson split work with Anthony McFarland but outperformed him by 58 yards on the same number of carries (nine). Most of Johnson's yardage came on a 65-yard touchdown scamper late in the first quarter to open up the scoring. Johnson has had an odd season, rushing for over 100 yards in three games and less than 30 in the other three. Johnson could have a down week on the road against Iowa.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson (undisclosed) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

Johnson (5'10/212) required assistance getting off the field near the end of Saturday's loss to Michigan, but it would appear that his issue was just a minor one. He figures to be good to go for Saturday's showdown with Rutgers barring a late setback. Johnson has rushed for 303 yards (6.7 YPC) and two touchdowns in five games this season. The big-play back has also racked up 325 yards and a touchdown on 11 kick returns.

Maryland senior RB Ty Johnson rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries in Saturday's 42-13 win over Minnesota.

Maryland's offense bounced back emphatically from last week's no-show against Temple, running for 315 yards and four TD on 8.5 ypc versus the Gophs. This was a vintage game for Ty Johnson, the boom-or-bust speedster. After posting a 6-23-0 line against the Owls last week, he broke off an 81-yard touchdown run in the first quarter en route to his 11.2 ypc average.
