[Ohio.com] The AP’s Doug Tucker reports that Larry Johnson is getting about as many carries as Priest Holmes during the Chiefs’ two-a-day practices. Once the regular season begins, he figures to claim a much bigger share of the load than he has ever had.
And Holmes, the most productive running back in Chiefs history, sounds almost as though he’s the one who came up with the idea.
“I think it’s absolutely important to get Larry (more involved),” Holmes said. “I think it would make our team stronger.”
If sharing more time with Johnson will get him to a championship, Holmes is all for it.
“I think for me it’s just wanting to win,” he said. “I’m used to winning. I’m used to being next to a team that has so many outstanding players. To be able to do some of the things we’ve done and not be able to finish on top is very disappointing.”
