View Full Version : David Johnson Injury ?

In the first quarter yesterday, the Steelers run game was definitely clicking in a way that I have not seen for quite awhile. Willie actually had some big holes to run through. Is it a coincidence that this happened when the Steelers made a change at fullback and inserted David Johnson in the backfield? I did not watch a replay of the game to see his contributions, but it seemed that after he left, the run game did not produce the same the rest of the game. I think Willie had 54 yards rushing just in the first quarter, and 38 the remaining three quarters.

Does anybody know the status of David Johnson's injury? Perhaps he did return to the game yesterday and I just missed it.

No he didnt return, they were using Heath/Speath in the backfield...and brought in OL Foster on the line to have a 3 TE set look...but i did see Johnson walking around on the sidelines, so who knows, maybe they just held him out to be safe.
