Although Coach Jim Schwartz said Monday X-rays showed there is no significant injury in Johnson's thumb, Johnson was still wearing cast on his right hand and he told reporters that it was for precautionary purpose. In fact Johnson was pulled out of practice by Schwartz when his thumb was jammed.

Schwartz told reporters that he had to pull Johnson out of practice for caution even though the player did not want stop yet. He said that sometimes it was best to take the player out and ask him to have a rest.
