Titans vs. Texans Defensive Snap Report: The Fall of Robert Johnson

Remember when Robert Johnson was starting at safety?

Robert Johnson burst on the scene this preseason. He went from a practice squad guy to a starter in the period of two weeks. After playing for two weeks, we all learned why he was a practice squad guy. This week he played 9 of 60 defensive snaps.

Here is a look at what the rest of the defensive players did:

Defensive line: Derrick Morgan led the group with 49 snaps played. He was invisible on 47 of them. Kamerion Wimbley played 48 snaps with similar visibility to Morgan. The only other intresting note here is that Mike Martin played 23 snaps compared to just 12 for Karl Klug. Of course, as Mike Munchak said yesterday, that has a lot to do with the fact that the Texans weren't in very many obvious passing situations.

Linebackers: Zac Diles played ten more snaps than Will Witherspoon (35-25). Changing of the guard there? Zach Brown was in on 45 of the 60 snaps. Akeem Ayers played 54. I would really like to see a linebacking corps that included Ayers, Colin McCarthy and Brown.

Secondary: Alterraun Verner, Jason McCourty and Michael Griffin played all 60 defensive snaps with varying degrees of success. Ryan Mouton played 15. Tommie Campbell still cannot find the field.
