Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Picks up three snaps in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson picked up three of the Cardinals' 82 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss at Buffalo.

When the Cardinals have faced daunting tasks in Weeks 1 and 3, Johnson has rarely been used, as evidenced by three carries for seven yards on five total snaps. During the Week 2 beatdown of the Buccaneers, though, he was afforded plenty of run to the tune of 16 rushes for 54 yards and a touchdown. The sole constant in the backfield this season has been standout sophomore David Johnson, who currently sits third overall in terms of yards from scrimmage with 386, including 217 on the ground. Outside of the blowout, the senior Johnson has so far been a distant second to David in the RB pecking order in Arizona.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Records rushing touchdown Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson recorded team highs with 16 carries for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 40-7 demolition of the Buccaneers.

Johnson garnered a career-low two snaps in the regular season opener, after which head coach Bruce Arians regretted not using the veteran back more often. Indeed, Johnson received a sizable bump in usage Sunday, picking up 21 of the Cardinals' 66 offensive snaps, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. With the hosts safely in front, 33-7, after three quarters, starting RB David Johnson took a seat, thereby allowing the veteran Johnson to handle the rock the rest of the way, which involved a three-yard touchdown to push the score to its final tally.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Earns two snaps Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson earned just two of 61 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Meanwhile, David Johnson was the bell cow that head coach Bruce Arians said he'd be this season, picking up 58 in all. Even Andre Ellington (nine snaps) was utilized more than the elder Johnson, who managed two yards on his sole carry. On Monday, Arians expressed regret that he didn't use Chris Johnson more, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, but after an efficient performance from David Johnson -- 5.6 YPC, one rushing touchdown, gathered up four of six targets -- one has to wonder why the head honcho would consider a different approach.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Notches 24 yards rushing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson notched seven carries for 24 yards during Sunday's preseason loss at Houston.

The Cardinals' ground game was dominated by David Johnson on the first two possessions, but the veteran Johnson and Andre Ellington shared the load for the next three, getting work with both Carson Palmer and his backup Drew Stanton. While Chris Johnson ripped off a 13-yard run at one point, he otherwise didn't surpass four yards on any other rush and wasn't targeted in the passing game. If his usage in the preseason is any indication, his touch count will hover about five per game in 2016 behind the bell cow that is David Johnson.

Cardinals' Chris Johnson: Receives four carries Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson turned four carries into seven yards during Friday's preseason defeat at San Diego.

Preseason performances for a veteran like Johnson don't mean all that much in the end, as he's merely reacquainting himself with the contact that he's endured for eight NFL seasons. The breakdown of snaps after David Johnson has been more telling. During both of the Cardinals' exhibitions to date, the second-year pro has earned the start, with the veteran immediately following in his wake. At numerous points in the offseason, head coach Bruce Arians has termed David Johnson the bell-cow back in Arizona, but Chris Johnson is still expected to be a regular contributor in the upcoming campaign.
