The All-Pro ripped his teammates and the Tennessee offense after he was held to just 17 yards on eight carries in a 38-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. That comes one week after he picked up just four yards in a 34-13 loss to the Patriots to open the season.
"The run game ain't working," Johnson said following the latest defeat, according to NFL.com. "We just aren't executing the plays. I don't know why we're not."
From there, Johnson put the blame on the rest of his teammates.
"People need to step up and do their job," he added. "They don't need to let people beat them. It don't matter who the opposing defense is, you can't let your guy beat you. You just can't give up plays. You have to make plays like they make plays. I can't speak for the defense. I can only speak for the offense."
Johnson's rushing totals have been in decline since 2009 when he ran for 2,006 yards, a figure that is the fifth-best single season rushing total in league history.
