David Johnson reiterated on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he wants to handle 30 touches a game this season.
"I feel like there’s room for me to definitely carry more," Johnson said. "I think the biggest thing is me learning and getting better and improving. So I feel like I can definitely get that 30 touches, not all rushing obviously." Johnson added that he's "100 percent" healed from Week 17's MCL injury, which did not require surgery. Last season, Johnson handled 24.3 touches per game in Weeks 1-16. While averaging 30 touches probably isn't realistic, there is no question Johnson will remain a top-three workhorse back along with Le'Veon Bell and Zeke Elliott. Jul 16 - 3:52 PM

Speaking about Carson Palmer, David Johnson said "his arm is definitely feeling good."

"His arm was so fresh I actually had to get stitches in my finger," Johnson quipped. Entering his age-37 campaign, Palmer will never regain his early-career arm strength, but it's good news he's feeling "fresh" after an offseason designed to keep him as such. With 4.34 speedster John Brown back to full health and the Cardinals more aware of Palmer's limitations, a bounce-back is a realistic possibility.

Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin said Chris Johnson and David Johnson are "both even" when it comes to running the ball.

"David is a little more comfortable (than Chris) in the passing game," added Goodwin. "(Bruce Arians) has certain things in mind with David, slotted out in formations, out of the backfield. He gives you a little different element from Chris. But running the ball, they are both even." The Arizona Republic wrote, "It’s hard to accurately predict how often (Chris) Johnson will touch the ball this season," but confirms "David Johnson is the starter." Chris will be a handcuff for David and might accrue some standalone value on something like 7-10 carries per game.
