Titans | Chris Johnsonís role evolving

Although Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson will remain a key element of the team's offense, offensive coordinator Chris Palmer is more inclined to spread the field with receivers and throw the ball more. Johnson will unlikely receive 25 touches per game in 2012. "To say you're going to get a guy 25 touches a game is pushing it," Palmer said. "That's 400 touches over the course of a season. He's certainly capable of that, but what does it mean for the team? Does it help us win?" Palmer added, "We can't allow people to come up and jam the box and make it difficult to run. In an ideal situation, you'd like to be 45 percent pass, 55 percent run. But depending on whom we're playing, it may switch to 60 percent pass, 40 percent run. Or it can be a higher percentage of passing depending on the score."
