Are the Titans Wearing Out Chris Johnson?

Sports Illustrated wonders if the team is wearing out running back Chris Johnson:

After more than 600 carries in two years and more than 400 touches in 2009, it may be worth asking the question. Unless the Titans show more discretion and keep him out of harm’s way more often, aren’t they shortening Chris Johnson’s career? In a perfect world, the Titans would find other ways to move the ball, thus adding years to Johnson’s career. This just in: It’s not a perfect world. “We want to win games. C.J.’s going to help us win games,” Coach Jeff Fisher said. “When he’s tired, we’ll back him down. When he can go, we’re going to keep feeding it to him.”
