FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Chris Johnson says his surgically repaired right knee is feeling "good," but it will likely keep the New York Jets running back from participating in organized team activities and minicamp the next few weeks.

Johnson says Thursday that he started running straight ahead this week and is "close to 100 per cent."

Signed by New York to a two-year, $8 million deal in April, Johnson had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee in January. He played through the injury with Tennessee last season, but expects to be ready in time to fully participate in training camp.

Johnson says he needed "a fresh start" after six seasons with the Titans, and "most definitely" is looking forward to the team's game at Tennessee on Dec. 14.
