Johnson had three receptions for 27 yards including a one-handed catch that went for 14 yards. He also had nine rushes for 34 yards with a 15-yard burst in the overtime session.
Thomas had one catch for 11 yards, but averaged less than three yards per carry with 40 yards on 14 attempts.
The former Offensive Rookie of the Year tried to put a positive spin on the move.
"If coach Jauron feels that Leon will be a positive contribution in certain situations, then that's fine," Thomas said. "I think that each of us has a lot to give to this team. We can both be out there doing our thing and getting the job done."
The question is will Thomas and Johnson now alternate possessions throughout the game?
