THe Cincinnati Bengals were decimated in the second half of their Week 3 preseason game against Arizona. They watched three players get carted off the field in the fourth quarter, including backup guard/center TJ Johnson. He had risen to second-string on the depth chart at guard.
Johnson was a center with the team but has moved over the guard and must be acquitting himself well.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) August 25, 2014
Also, of note for those who love OL depth charts, looks like TJ Johnson in with 2nd team at RG. Means hopped rookie Trey Hopkins.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) August 25, 2014
With the 251st and also their final pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Bengals drafted Johnson out South Carolina. In his senior year, Johnson started in all 13 games, and set the South Carolina record for starts over a career. He was named to the Coaches All-SEC second-team in his final college season.
