Lane Johnson still in the running for starting job at OU

Johnson, 6-foot-6, gained 30 pounds this summer. He now weighs 305. But when the team ran post-practice gassers last week, Johnson ran under 16 seconds, running a similar time as the running backs.

“That kid is amazing,” said running back Brennan Clay. “When we were running trippers, he was beating the O-line by five seconds. He was hauling. He's quick. He can move. He's doing a great job.”

Coaches could start Johnson at left or right tackle. His role might be alternating behind both Stephenson and Williams.

“(Johnson) is a bright guy and he cares a lot,” Kittle said. “He's an extremely hard worker. He runs great. He has big, long arms. Given his frame and athleticism, the sky is the limit for him.”
