Johnson: ‘I’m just working through it, staying in treatment and doing what I can to get back out there’Posted by on August 22, 2011 – 5:29 pm
“My shoulder is sore. I’m just working through it, staying in treatment and doing what I can to get back out there as soon as I can. I’m still practicing because keeping up with my conditioning is a big thing. You definitely don’t want to fall behind because, when that first game comes, you get winded out there.
“Camp is just about over and I’m definitely excited. That’s the consensus amongst everybody. We’re starting to watch film for the Patriots to start getting used to our regular season schedule. We don’t get into it too deep - just watch film once or twice and we don’t really game plan too much. It’s more working on what we do.
“Our offense has looked good our first two games, but we still don’t have everyone on the field. Of course I think about what the offense will be like with everyone available. The biggest thing is making sure everybody’s healthy. You don’t want to lose people here in the preseason. You definitely want to start the season with all your guys. Titus got on the field this week and he’s looking good. He has quick feet and good hands, so once he’s fully healed and ready to go, he’ll be an added weapon.
“We’ve got some talent out there on the field if we can just get everybody out there at the same time. That’s the biggest part is getting to that point where everybody’s healthy and can start the season off the right way. That’s a big goal of ours.
“I’m looking forward to seeing family this weekend. I haven’t seen my mom in awhile – in about a month. I’ve got some friends coming up here, too. I’m not really able to do anything with my parents because we don’t have a lot of time. They are just in and out – they just come up for the games – so we’ll probably go out to dinner on Friday night before we check into the hotel. I look forward to seeing my parents come up for the game.”
