Detroit should feel at least a little better about its run game than it did last season. While it was largely against backups and fringe roster players, rookie Kerryon Johnson showed good speed, fast instincts and the ability to fight for extra yardage. LeGarrette Blount did what was expected. And Ameer Abdullah looked sharp – the best he’s looked since Week 4 of last season – throughout the first half. Abdullah was one of the bigger surprises Friday night and the combination of the three along with pass-catching Theo Riddick gave the Lions a more intriguing running back group than it has had in a while. The last time Detroit looked this good running the ball in the preseason opener was 2015, when Abdullah was a rookie garnering some of the hype Johnson is now receiving. The starters also played without right guard T.J. Lang and quarterback Matthew Stafford.

It's still early, but rookie running back Kerryon Johnson has consistently flashed as a runner with good vision and speed. LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick will still get their share of the work (Blount potentially on early downs and in short-yardage and Riddick in the passing game) but Johnson is showing real potential as a runner. A word of warning, though, is this is still early in camp and against a defense still picking up a new scheme. But the skill set is there.
