03/09/2015 09:04 Boomer & Carton: Chris Johnson shot in drive-by
New York Jets running back Chris Johnson was wounded in drive-by shooting in Orlando, FL on Sunday and is currently in stable condition. Boomer and Carton discuss the violent incident.
Chris Johnson signed with the Cardinals in mid-August to bolster their running back group after injuries took a toll. Johnson himself is aiming to regroup after a pair of uninspiring seasons, one in Tennessee and one in New York with the Jets. Last year he bottomed out despite averaging 4.3 yards per carry, scoring one lowly rushing touchdown. In 2010, he scored 11 rushing touchdowns. For Johnson to regain his status as a great Fantasy back, he'll have to find ample playing time and thrive in Bruce Arians' aggressive offense. At best, he's an insurance policy for Andre Ellington because so long as Ellington is active, Johnson's role figures to be small. Grab him with a late-round pick.
