Reports early Tuesday morning were that Johnson was “following simple commands” on Monday after being transferred from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital to UF Health in Gainesville.
Johnson had been in a medically induced coma as of Monday, and the hopes were he would be brought out of the condition Monday night.
On Monday, coach Mike White and head athletic trainer Dave Werner, who stayed in Tallahassee for two nights, returned to Gainesville on the school’s jet with other family members.
