In 2006, at age 27, Larry Johnson had an NFL-record 457 touches from scrimmage (416 rushes, 41 receptions). In the last two seasons, Johnson has missed 12 games due to nagging injuries and touched the ball 393 times total (351 rushes, 42 receptions). I wanted two answers from Johnson: Did overuse in 2006 ruin him? And does he have anything left now, when coach Todd Haley -- the world considers Haley a 60-40 pass-run play-caller -- wants to run the ball more than anyone thinks? Point 1: "I definitely was done by the end of that season. When we went to play the Colts in the playoffs, my legs were gone. I had nothing left. But it didn't destroy me.'' Point 2: Johnson is down to 225 pounds from his norm of 233. He looks good, very fit. "I include myself in this, but I think we were getting too comfortable in the Herman Edwards/Dick Vermeil era. I feel great right now. Nothing hurts. I know I'm not done. I still have the juice. I can definitely be a 300-plus carry back again.''
