For secondary coach Jerome Henderson, the jury is still out on safety Matt Johnson, who missed his entire rookie season--aside from 12 snaps in the team’s third preseason game--after suffering a hamstring injury that would nag at him all season in training camp.
“He was only out here a day or two and he would have some medical setbacks,” Henderson said of Johnson, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “So it wasn’t enough to make an opinion.”
Johnson finally returned to the field last week for the team’s first session of organized team activities and has already shown the Dallas more than they saw all of last year.
“Absolutely by a long shot, this is the longest stretch we have seen Matt,” Henderson said. “Yes it is. So he is a rookie. He is not just like a rookie, he is a rookie. In my book he is a rookie just like all the other rookies.”
