What Would Buddy Do?
Jim Johnson questionable for Sunday; “We’ll just see how he does here,” explains Reid.

Defensive coordinator Jim Johnson was omitted from both Andy Reid’s Wednesday press conference and the team’s official injury report:

Injury Report: “(RT Jon) Runyan and (RB Brian) Westbrook will not practice today. (WR Jason) Avant will do some things. (Avant) went through the walkthrough. Basically, they all went through the walkthrough. Avant will go through the practice.”

But what of Jim Johnson’s balky back and cane requirements?  Surely this merits mention, no?  Especially with a five-hour flight to Arizona looming?  That can’t do wonders for a 67-year-old guy with back issues.

Luckily for Jim Johnson, there are no known performance-enhancing drug restrictions for the coaching staff.  So shoot that old guy full of happy juice and send him to Arizona!  We’re going to need him at the top of his game!

(Other fun facts about Jim Johnson that I picked up when reviewing his bio on PE.com: he was a college quarterback at Missouri (huh), and played tight end for two seasons in the pros (with Buffalo).  Wouldn’t have guessed that he’d played offense.)
