Draft Scout Chris Johnson News
10/04/16 - RB Chris Johnson (groin) was placed on injured reserve by the Cardinals.
10/04/16 - RB Chris Johnson has now been placed on injured reserve for the second time in two years, going on it last year and being lost for the season due to a fracture in his tibia. This time, it's a groin injury that apparently has become a hernia situation. Johnson's career was in doubt a year ago when he was shot in the back of the shoulder during a drive-by shooting in Orlando that claimed the life of one of his friends.
"You feel bad for him because he did such a great job in the comeback," Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "He was starting to hit it again. I just feel bad for him because he's such a great kid and hard worker."
10/03/16 - RB Chris Johnson left the Sunday game against the Rams in the fourth quarter when he sustained a groin injury after a 7-yard gain. He could barely walk off the field under his own power, and after the game, he needed a security guard to drive him to his car in the players' parking lot. "Obviously, not very good," Johnson said when asked how he felt after the game. "I've never had one of these before, so I don't really know how long it's going to take. It doesn't feel good."
Coach Bruce Arians on Monday said Andre Ellington would take any snaps Johnson would have received when the Cardinals return to action Thursday night at the 49ers.
10/02/16 - RB Chris Johnson left the game in the fourth quarter with a groin injury and did not return. He had six carries for 34 yards against the Rams.
09/04/16 - RB Chris Johnson averaged 4.3 yards per carry last season (for 814 total yards) before a cracked tibia ended his season prematurely. Though he turns 31 this season, the former 2,000-yard rusher for the Titans promises he has much, much more to give this year after recovering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder in the spring of 2015. "I think I'm way better than last year," he said. "I was coming back last year from being shot, not being in shape. Now, I'm in shape. I can use my hand a lot more."
