RB Johnson Playing Catchup w/ Texans

The Houston Chronicle reports that RB Jeremiah Johnson is playing catchup with the team after missing sessions due to class:

After missing the organized team activities because his class at Oregon had not graduated, free-agent running back Jeremiah Johnson used the three-day minicamp as a learning experience. By the time Johnson arrived in Houston, he had fallen behind Arian Foster, the other undrafted rookie who’s trying to make the team. Johnson and Foster are competing with veterans Chris Brown and Ryan Moats for places on the team and playing time behind starter Steve Slaton.

“I’ve been trying to catch up,” Johnson said after the last day of minicamp Wednesday. “The first day I was out here, I was real far behind, but I gathered a lot of information. “I’m trying to learn everything I can. I’m trying to take everything they tell me and apply it on the field. I want to show them I can be a hard-nosed runner.”
