Ian Johnson (born October, 10 1986) is an American football running back who is currently a member of the San Francisco 49ers practice squad of the National Football League. He was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He played college football at Boise State. Johnson has also been a member of the Detroit Lions & Arizona Cardinals practice squad.

He gained national recognition when he accumulated 240 rushing yards and five touchdowns in a game against Oregon State which was broadcast on ESPN. This game would prove very significant to the Broncos' hopes of "busting" the BCS; their 42-14 victory over Oregon State increased their credibility after the Beavers stunned then-#3 USC on October 28, 2006. The Broncos won the Fiesta Bowl 43-42 in OT against Oklahoma that season. On December 23, 2008 Johnson set the WAC record for rushing touchdowns at 58 with his touchdown against Texas Christian University (TCU) during the Poinsettia Bowl; the previous record of 57 was held by Marshall Faulk.
