The Tennessean - [Full Article]

He’s carried the ball 674 times over the past two seasons, more than any other back in the NFL during that time. So it’s natural to wonder whether running back Chris Johnson may have become worn out at times last season, especially with the increased attention defenses were placing on him following the 2,000-yard season of 2009.

New Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer acknowledges he’ll keep an eye on the situation. But he also noted that Johnson kept his weight steady last season and that he was second in the league with 41 broken tackles – which could be interepreted as two signs that overuse was not a big problem.
