"I didn't expect it, but he's out there doing his thing," said Charles, who got knocked out of Kansas City's Jan. 4 playoff loss with a concussion. "I can't get mad at him -- it's just about football, and you've just got to be ready."
Johnson lowered his shoulder and blasted Charles in his shoulder/head area, the report said. The game's defensive MVP, Johnson said he would never try to hurt a teammate and that he was merely trying to "compete a little bit."
In a Pro Bowl featuring an unusual amount of defense,
Johnson had several big hits, including one on Jamaal Charles, his Chiefs' teammate.
The hit was stunning, especially considering Charles missed most of the playoff loss at Indianapolis with a concussion. Charles kept playing after the hit but looked perturbed with his teammate.
Charles is a co-captain for Team Sanders, Johnson a member of Team Rice. According to NFL Network, Johnson was upset Charles did not pick him in the player draft. But in an on-field interview, Johnson merely said he was trying to prevent Charles from gaining a head of steam.
Johnson picked off Matt McGloin in the fourth quarter for his second interception of the season. He finished with six total tackles (four solo) and one pass defended in a 56-31 victory.
