Roschon Johnson Sees Career-High Usage In Week 12 Win

Tuesday, November 28, 10:06 AM

Chicago Bears running back Roschon Johnson saw the most usage of his young career in the team's 12-10 win over the Vikings in Week 12. The rookie running back finished with a career-most 10 carries for 35 yards while also catching all five targets for 40 yards. This marked the most opportunities Johnson saw in a game all year and the first time he's seen 10 touches since Week 3. The 22-year-old was the clear leader in the backfield in Week 12, playing 51 snaps to Khalil Herbert's 15. With D'Onta Foreman (ankle) out, Johnson was expected to see some work alongside Herbert but ended up leading the backfield entirely. The Bears have a bye week in Week 13 and face the Lions in Week 14, who allow the third-fewest points per game to running backs.
