Dallas Cowboys safety Matt Johnson spent his entire rookie season on the injured reserve with a pair of hamstring injuries. In Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game against the Miami Dolphins, Johnson suffered an ankle injury that forced him off the field and into the locker room, where he had an X-ray, but it might be too early to dejectedly mutter, “Here we go again.”
Johnson--who started in the 24-20 preseason win--is scheduled to undergo an MRI on the ankle today, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones doesn’t believe the ankle issue is anything too serious, adding that he liked the little bit of what he saw out of the Eastern Washington product.
“We didn’t see anything on the X-ray that would bother us,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I thought he was playing well when he went out.”
