Default Tennessee running CJ into the ground?

In 08 CJ had 250 carries, and put some amazing numbers.
Last year his workload was increased to 350, and his numbers got even better.

This year his numbers are way down, and his carries are still high. He's on pace for close to 400 carries this year. (375 currently I think).


There have been more than a few instances where NFL teams have ridden a running back into the ground by giving them ~400 touches a year.

LJ put up 2 amazing years with 330 and then 416 carries. He was never the same.

Turner put up an amazing season where he rushed 375 times. He missed a lot of time the following season.

I wonder if CJ is going to join that list


I think part of the reason guys like LT have lasted so long is theyve had their carries managed well. LT never carried it for >350
