Titans RB Chris Johnson Unhappy With Role Last Week Vs Texans
On Thursday, Titans running back Chris Johnson said he was “very upset” with his role in the second half of last Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Texans, when he had only three carries and spent most of his time on the field blocking in pass protection.
“When it is time for clutch plays in game-time situations, I don’t want to be on the sideline or just be in there blocking all the time,” said Johnson, who had a streak of six 80-plus yard games snapped. “Of course I want to be out there and make plays. I am a playmaker.”
Asked if he voiced his displeasure with new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, Johnson said:
“I don’t think it was a thing where he had to come to me and say anything. I was very upset, or whatever, not being able to be used as much as I wanted to be. But it’s a situation, he’s a new guy and he’d never called a game before in his career. Hopefully it will change.”
Johnson finished with 51 yards on 13 carries. He has 993 yards through 12 games as the Titans (4-8) prepare to face the Colts (8-4) in Indianapolis on Sunday.
Loggains, who replaced the fired Chris Palmer as offensive coordinator last week, said after the game he regretted not using Johnson more in the second half.
