Asked if Johnson would play Sunday, Edwards said, "Oh, yeah. Our offense has changed a little bit, but we're still going to try to run the ball, with him being one of the better backs in the league."
An emphatic "Oh, yeah" from Herm Edwards? I consider that a pretty strong sign that Larry Johnson still fits in the Chiefs plans for the foreseeable future. With the woman who he was involved with during an October arrest suing him, things don't appear to be going Larry's way any time soon though. Probably the only thing he could do to win back his lost Kansas City Chiefs fan base is go all out in yards, touchdowns, leadership, etc. for the rest of the year. Personally, I don't see that happening.
