Chris Johnson had only nine carries for 24 yards in the season opener as he works his way back into shape from his holdout that ended Sept. 2. Titans coach Mike Munchak is ready to give the ball to Johnson, saying he thinks the running back could have as many as 25 touches against Baltimore on Sunday.

Munchak said the Titans know they have to be committed to running against Baltimore after missing opportunities to make plays against Jacksonville.

"We'll have to be patient with that, but it's not something we can come out and hand it off 10 times in a row just to give him 10 carries," Munchak said. "We have to be smart in how we do things. Those runs will come in this kind of game."

Fantasy Impact: 

We're not terribly optimistic about Chris Johnson this week given his W1 workload and his matchup against a tough Ravens defense which shut down a much better Steelers offense last week.
