Draft Scout Chris Johnson News
12/28/12 - RB Chris Johnson expects to play on Sunday despite an ankle injury suffered Sunday. Johnson has never missed a game in his five-year career.
12/27/12 - RB Chris Johnson has certainly had an up-and-down season this year, but overall has bettered his dismal 2011 year by running for 1,187 yards with one game to go. Johnson could join some elite company if he could somehow run for 168 yards in the season finale against Jacksonville. That would make him just the fourth running back in NFL history to have 7,000 yards rushing in his first five NFL seasons. That would be pretty good company, considering the other three are Eric Dickerson, LaDainian Tomlinson and Emmitt Smith.
12/27/12 - RB Chris Johnson has been bothered by an ankle injury but should play against the Jaguars.
12/19/12 - RB Chris Johnson had 122 yards rushing on Monday night, but had only 28 yards in addition to his franchise-best 94-yard touchdown run.
12/14/12 - RB Chris Johnson returned to practice Friday after sitting out the previous day to rest an ankle injury. He is expected to play against the New York Jets on Monday night.
