JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars will begin training camp with one less available running back than expected.
Storm Johnson, a second-year veteran and one of six running backs on the Jaguars' roster, was placed on the active/non-football illness list Wednesday, the team announced.
Johnson being on the list means he won't likely practice immediately during Jaguars 2015 Training Camp, which begins with a 9:55 a.m. practice Friday at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields. He can be moved the active roster at any time.
Johnson (6-feet-0, 216 pounds), a seventh-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft from the University of Central Florida, played six games as a rookie last season with one start. He rushed for 86 yards on 29 carries last season, rushing for two touchdowns.
Johnson's status leaves the Jaguars five available running backs entering camp: rookie second-round draft selection T.J. Yeldon, sixth-year veteran Toby Gerhart, third-year veteran Denard Robinson, fourth-year veteran Bernard Pierce and rookie undrafted free agent Corey Grant.
