Overall, Johnston’s six punts averaged 43.8 net yards with three pinning the Steelers inside their own 20.
Johnston spent last preseason with the Eagles but did not make the team. This preseason the job looks like his to lose after the retirement of Donnie Jones.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports he has looked good in practice when allowed to unleash long bombs but is still learning the finer points of directional punting.
In the same game Thursday night, former Ohio State safety Malcolm Jenkins had three tackles for the Eagles.
Lakota West graduate added two stops as well.
