Buffalo Bulls Lose Jordan Johnson for the season

Jordan Johnson, a local prep star getting ready for his redshirt frosh season at Buffalo will have to miss the season after Elbow Surgery.

Johnson came to UB as the number 158th rated Quarterback in the nation while playing just down the street at Sweet Home High School. He was twice a Class A State Player of the Year and was also a first-team All-WNY and All-State selection

As a dual threat quarterback on a team with a half dozen quarterbacks Johnson was moved over to the half back position last year where he used a redshirt and worked with the scout team. On the post spring depth chart Johnson was backing up UB full back Boomer Brock.

This summer Johnson, buried once again in a deep backfield, has been bulking up to play the H-Back position.  The H-back lines up similarly to a tight end, but is "set back" from the line of scrimmage, and is thus counted as one of the four "backs" in the offensive formation. At the position Johnson would have been more a blocker and receiver, similar to a tight end.

It's an early loss for the Bulls and one which brings up memories of 2010 when Buffalo lost no less than five backs at one point or another due to injury. Johnson was not going to be a core component of UB's offense but his athletic ability could have added quite a wrinkles into the game day prep of opposing defenses.
