Draft Scout Chris Johnson News
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.
08/29/17 - RB Chris Johnson's spot on the roster doesn't appear to be safe and he could be among some of the biggest names across the league when final roster cuts are announced on Saturday. Losing two fumbles in Saturday's preseason game at Atlanta didn't help the veteran, who once rushed for more than 2,000 yards for Tennessee.
"It's going to be a tough decision for that spot," said coach Bruce Arians, who plans to keep four running backs on the roster.
08/21/17 - RB Chris Johnson hasn't had any highlights during the preseason schedule as of yet, having rushed seven times for only 10 yards and catching three passes for five yards.
Coach Bruce Arians said he isn't concerned, but said Johnson didn't have his best game against the Bears on Saturday night."He had a couple runs where he bounced and could have just crammed it up in there for four or five (yards)," Arians said. "I think the one could have been as much as 10 or 12. (He's) pressing a little bit." Asked if Johnson still possesses breakaway speed, Arians said: "I've seen it in practice, yeah. There's been a bunch of times he's exhibited it."
