Johnson walking without limp
Chiefs RB says he'll return to lineup sooner than later

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/football/nfl/11/15/chiefs.johnson.ap/index.html

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Larry Johnson stepped from the white luxury car with shiny rims and strode across the parking lot, making his way past a pair of whispering, giggling girls at the entrance of the restaurant.

The Kansas City running back slapped hands with a few fans, then made his way down some steps to a seat next to Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson, lowering a set of headphones over his ears as he sat down.

The significance of Johnson's little jaunt? He wasn't limping.

Eleven days after injuring his foot in a game against Green Bay, Johnson is moving better and the swelling has reduced enough for him to put on a pair of green-and-yellow sneakers. Though ruled out for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Johnson says he will play again this season.

"It's going good," Johnson said during Peterson's weekly radio show. "A lot of people don't realize my foot was swollen bad at the end of the game, then I was on crutches for two, three days. This is only the first week and I'm able to walk fine without using a boot."

Johnson was injured when he was pulled down from behind by Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk and caught the top of his toe on the turf. Johnson had to be helped from the field, then was carted off to the locker room.

There was a report last week that Johnson had broken his foot, and the Chiefs have been coy about the severity of the injury, saying only that it was a mid-foot sprain. Johnson didn't clarify the diagnosis, saying only that he's doing everything he can to speed up his return.

"If you went to my house, my room looks like the set of 'ER,"' said Johnson, who stopped talking to local reporters at the beginning of the season. "I have ice buckets, I have stim machines, I have the whole works sitting next to my bed, so I'm rehabbing even when I'm at home watching TV."

Johnson won't be making the trip to Indianapolis -- he's instead visiting a foot specialist in Charlotte, N.C. -- which could be a good thing for someone who says he had missed one game in his life (in high school) before watching Sunday's 27-11 loss to Denver from the sideline.

"At halftime, I went and did more rehab because I just really couldn't watch it anymore," Johnson said. "It was just frustrating for me not being able to be out there."

Heh. After watching Priest for a week LJ sees how much the OL has improved since he went down and is anxious to get tackled behind this improved OL.


I wonder how fast he would have been ready to play if Bennet were the starter last week instead of Priest? I also wonder if Herm will stay with LJ if he keeps going down 1 yard behind the LOS while Priest continues getting 3.3 YPC?

This is a dumb post. We played the Broncos. Of course there was a little more running room.

Priest won't sniff 100 yards in a game this year.

IMO, for anyone worried about Croyle's health, he's better off with Priest in at RB than LJ. Priest is much better at picking up blocks as well as better hands on screens and a checkdown receiver.

no, I said it was a sprained Lis Franc(mid-foot), and not a fracture/dislocation.

I agree.

I believe Larry Johnson is also dealing with a nagging hamstring injury this season.

As an outsider looking in, the Chiefs are very lucky to have two amazing running backs on their team. Unfortunetely, they're behind an offensive line that has just two players in the same position they played last season.

Good Luck Sunday!

How come everything you say and predict is ALWAYS wrong?

Just because you said this, I would not be suprised if Priest goes for 101 agains the Colts. Just because you said he couldn't.

Stop blowin LJ.
Priest had a decent game against a team putting 8 in the box like every other team we go against. Besides the same excuse you use about the Oline being piss poor should have been Priest's excuse last week as well.

let's make a bet........I ain't falling for the take a hike bit....that was a good one.

Priest gets 100 yards in some game this season. You leave the planet. Rephrase, I don't want you going to the moon, pluto or mars....You leave Chiefs planet until the draft.

If Priest does not get 100 in some game this season, after every post you make, I agree with you.
