    Just heard Cedric Benson has a hurt hip. Looks like they needed Johnson.

    Larry Johnson is a very good running back from a bad situation in K.C. His physical play will be a great asset for Chicago

      He went to Cincinnati, when Benson is back in full strength he Johnson is going to see little to no running plays for him. He will make a good trade bait for next season if he improves on his running of what is left this season.

        yea, nothing at all to be excited about if your'e a Cincinnatti fan. Such as was the case in '07 when the Redskins aquired Shaun Alexander, nothing came out of that...a lot of wasted hope on that season!

    Running backs over 30 years old don't usually do too well; unless they take some years off in the middle like John Riggins and Ricky Williams did.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he had some good games while Benson is recovering. I also wouldn't surprised if he was really mediocre. He has a 2.9 average this season. Even on a bad team that's not good.

    He signed a one year deal with Cinci, so he won't be trade bait.

    I highly doubt LJ will see more than a couple carries.
    Bernard Scott will get the start and should see the majority of carries.
