Matt Johnson

Tumwater grad Matt Johnson ran with the second team defense last night for the Dallas Cowboys in their 24-21 win over the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame Game. Unfortunately for Johnson, who missed all of his rookie season with an injury, he landed awkwardly on a tackle and didn’t return. X-rays on his ankle were negative, but he will have an MRI when the Cowboys return to Oxnard, California this morning. – Link
