Draft Scout Chris Johnson News
10/10/17 - RB Chris Johnson was released by the Arizona Cardinals after the team acquired Adrian Peterson from the New Orleans Saints. Johnson, 32, was leading the team in carries (45) and rushing yards (114) for a paltry 2.5-yard average.
09/27/17 - RB Chris Johnson looked "a little rusty" against the Cowboys on Monday night, head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday, hinting that Andre Ellington might see more time in the backfield this Sunday against the visiting 49ers.
"Andre looked very much more comfortable. I thought Andre looked very fast in the game," Arians said.
Asked if Ellington can be effective running between the tackles or if the player still projects more as a third-down back in passing situations, which is what he was when the season started, Arians said, "Andre's always been effective. When he was our guy, 80-yard runs were up the middle. We're not a perimeter running team anyways."
09/21/17 - RB Chris Johnson, as expected, will get more carries this week although coach Bruce Arians wasn't ready Thursday to name him as the team's new starting running back in advance on Monday night's game against the visiting Cowboys. Asked specifically if there will be a change among his starters, Arians said: "Not today. Offensively, Chris Johnson's carries right now will be up. We could do something later in the week, but right now, nothing. He'd be the only one."
09/12/17 - RB Chris Johnson was signed by the Cardinals to help fill the void left by Davis Johnson's injury just 10 days after he was released. The three-time Pro Bowl selection played in just four games for Arizona last season due to a groin injury. He collected 95 yards on 25 carries.
09/01/17 - RB Chris Johnson was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, according to multiple reports. Johnson, who turns 32 on Sept. 23, said earlier this week that he was optimistic to make the Cardinals' 53-man roster despite two fumbles in Saturday's preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons. During the preseason, Johnson rushed 13 times for 41 yards (3.2 yards per attempt). Johnson finished the 2016 season with 95 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries in a backup role. His first six NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans were highlighted by a 2,006-yard season in 2009, when he led the league in rushing, broke the NFL's single-season record for yards from scrimmage (2,509) and was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year. He has 9,537 career rushing yards.
