[KFFL] Green Discusses Larry Johnson
KCChiefs.com reports Kansas City Chiefs QB Trent Green was asked for his opinion about RB Larry Johnson’s role in 2005. Green’s answer was: “The same and even more. It’s a situation where it’s clear that Priest is going to be the starter. He’s battled injuries the last two years. Keeping him healthy, a lot of that may rely on Larry. If we can take some pressure off of Priest as Larry develops and understands the run game better, understands the passing game better, that could take some of that pressure off of Priest. It seems like he has the right attitude. I think last year really helped him having a chance to play and realizing that he could play in this league, giving him that confidence boost. Hopefully that carries over. Based on what he’s done out here so far, he’s going to be prepared, whether it’s 10 snaps a game or 45 snaps a game. I’m pleased with his progress so far.”
