Johnson underwent an MRI on the hamstring recently and it was determined he’d need some time.
“We were trying to get him ready for the season,’’ said Kitchens. “We weren’t trying to get him ready to play tonight. I would not question Duke’s professionalism if I were you.”
Johnson, who asked the Browns to trade him in February after they signed Kareem Hunt, was dealt to the Texans for a conditional fourth-round pick in 2020 that’s likely to bump to a third. If he’s active for 10 games, the Browns get the higher pick.
And although Johnson’s replacement, Dontrell Hilliard, had an up and down game on Thursday night complete with some nice catches but a fumble on the goal-line, Kitchens still believes the trade was prudent. With running backs devalued in recent years, the Browns managed to get a likely third round pick for Johnson, his original draft round in 2015.
“Duke was a good football player,’’ said Kitchens. “It’s hard to let good football players go, but we did what was best for the organization and the Cleveland Browns. What (General Manager) John (Dorsey) did felt like what we needed to do. It truly did. Duke was drafted in the third round so it was a good opportunity to help us out down the road in the future. We wish Duke nothing but the best. Well wishes.”
