Johnson carried the ball 13 times for 18 yards in Sunday's 22-13 win over Tennessee. He added three receptions on four targets for 16 yards.

The Texans narrowed their backfield usage to Johnson and Rex Burkhead, with Burkhead leading the way in terms of both touches and production. Even so, Johnson saw a season-high 13 carries -- the first time he received double-digit rush attempts in a game -- thanks in large part to a surprisingly positive game script. Despite the increased opportunity, Johnson averaged only 1.4 yards per carry. He found a bit more production as a receiver, and he's now managed multiple receptions in seven of his 10 contests this season. Even with a favorable Week 12 matchup against the Jets up next, Johnson has shown few signs of being a reliable producer.
