Johnson has thrown up gaudy numbers when healthy, but 2012 hasn't started that way.
The five-time Pro Bowl pick has 11 catches for 140 yards and a touchdown in two games. Between 2008 and 2010, Johnson had three 1,200-yard seasons, including two 1,500-plus. He has five 1,100-yard seasons on his resume.

"Whatever we have to do to win, that's pretty much all that matters."
"I came in there at halftime and coach Kubiak told me, 'Hey man, don't get frustrated. Just keep playing," Johnson said. "I was like, 'Coach, just run it down their throat. If they're going to keep letting us run it, keep running it.'"
