Ian Johnson to return kickoffs

From Chadd Cripe's Bronco Beat blog:

His role in the offense might slip this year with three other excellent tailbacks on the roster, but he will return kickoffs and could land roles on other special-teams units, too.

We thought there might be some other candidates for kickoff return duties, but it appears that the job is Johnson's to lose.

Cripe's story had a lot of encouraging news on the Johnson front, including the RB's plan not to injure any internal organs this fall. Johnson seems to have really dedicated himself to conditioning and weight training, which means he could have a great senior season ahead. It appears he's not banking on that plumbing/knitting career to pan out.
