[Topeka Capital-Journal] As Larry Johnson lay face-down on the turf, motionless, Damon Huard thought the same thing you did.
“It kind of brought me back to Week 1,” Huard said, referencing quarterback Trent Green’s head injury. “When these kind of injuries happen, it’s part of the game, but it’s not fun.”
Johnson went down at the end of a 78-yard reception on which Cardinals cornerback Antrel Rolle evaded Samie Parker’s block and grabbed Johnson’s facemask, snapping his head backward. After a few cautious minutes, Johnson walked off the field under his own power with what the Chiefs called a sprained neck.
“Larry’s going to be fine,” Chiefs coach Herm Edwards said. “I haven’t talked to his doctors, but I saw him walking off. I’m pretty sure he’s going to be OK.”
