Chris Johnson, the highly paid running back fans wanted benched or even traded, is a big piece of the Tennessee Titans’ offense once again.
Johnson said Wednesday he feels like he never left.
The man nicknamed CJ2K for racking up 2,006 yards in 2009 has helped erase his horrible start this season with one of the biggest games of his career. Johnson, named the AFC’s offensive player of the week Wednesday, has helped the Titans (3-4) reel off two straight wins by leading the NFL in rushing with 451 yards since Week 4.
Now Johnson must keep it up Sunday against Indianapolis (3-4) to prove his 195 yards rushing wasn’t a gift from Buffalo and the league’s worst rushing defense.
