Duke Johnson Frustrated by Lack of Touches in Browns' Offense

Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson shares a backfield with Carlos Hyde and Nick Chubb and admitted Thursday he's feeling frustrated by the lack of touches he received in the first five games.

However, per Mary Kay Cabot of, quarterback Tyrod Taylor—who has watched Baker Mayfield surpass him as the starting quarterback—gave Johnson a pep talk Wednesday that impacted the running back's perspective.

"It could be frustrating but it wasn't over the top,'' Johnson said after the talk. "Just trying to figure it out.''

"He told me to just be more positive,'' he added.
