Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson indicated he does not completely understand the team's signing of RB Shonn Greene but expects to be fine with the situation. "I have never been a big fan of the two-back system, so I don't know how we plan on using him," Johnson. "I'm not afraid of competition, but I was thinking we'd maybe get a draft pick for the other back. And you don't give a guy that kind of money to be just a goal-line guy and in tough-yardage situations. So we'll see what happens."
Fantasy Tip: Johnson should still get a majority of the carries next season, but Greene could be used in situations that Johnson handled. Johnson should be considered as a starter every week while Greene should be viewed as a No. 5 running back until his role is more clearly defined.

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 04:30:14 -0800
Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson said he is not in favor of the team using a two-running back system in 2013. Johnson added the team has traditionally used a goal-line back in his place, but he wants to remain the primary runner. "I know I deserve them touches, but at the end of the day, they're the coaches and I gotta go with whatever they're doing. I'm a team player, and if they feel like they can help us win by putting a bigger guy in there I'm not going to pout about it," Johnson said. "But if it's a situation where it's a two-back system, I played in a two-back system in college and I don't like it because you really can't get into a groove. That's something I wouldn't be happy with."

If you're going to really run, I'm talking 30-plus times a game, there aren't many that can do that for 16 games anymore, their bodies can't take it." Croom said the team will not look to diminish Johnson's role on offense but would like another back that can do different things and fill a different role.

The Tennessee Titans' offensive line was a patchwork group in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts and it showed in the running game. RB Chris Johnson could only manage 44 yards rushing on 19 carries, and his longest gain was just eight yards. OLT Michael Roos was the only starter remaining from the line when training camp began.

Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said the team tried to stay with the running game as long as they could, but noted their 2.3 yards per carry was frustrating. Johnson did well enough to put him over the 1,000-yard mark, as he now has 1,037 yards rushing on the year. He said he doesn't want to make excuses and the team just needs to work hard to improve.
