Thursday, October 25, 2012, 7:20pm

Titans RB Javon Ringer (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Jamie Harper will back up Chris Johnson. He scored two touchdowns last week and appears to be the Titans' short yardage back. Desperate owners could start him in a good matchup with the Colts.

Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 7:21pm

Titans RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. There's probably nothing to worry about here. Johnson has another nice matchup this week with the Colts.

Titans Inactives
Patrick Bailey LB
Lavelle Hawkins WR
Jake Locker QB
Deuce Lutui G
Michael Otto T
Javon Ringer RB

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Hasselbeck will continue to start for the Titans. Kenny Britt is active, but is coming off a short week and not 100%. Kendall Wright and Nate Washington will also be in the mix. With Javon Ringer out 4+ weeks, Jamie Harper and Darius Reynaud will work behind Chris Johnson. In a perfect world, Titans HC Mike Munchak would like to get them both some touches.

Titans HC Mike Munchak on if Jamie Harper or Darius Reynaud will get more carries with Javon Ringer out:

Yeah, obviously, (Jamie) Harper will suit up. I think both of them—they’ll both get an opportunity to be in, they’ll both be dressed, just depending on how the game goes. I hope that we get to run the ball 25, 30 times and they’ll both get a chance to run.

Munchak on if it would be nice to use Jamie Harper as a change-of-pace back:

Yeah, obviously, we think Jamie (Harper) is a real good back. We like (Javon) Ringer. Again, Ringer brings experience and protection, things like that and he’s very familiar with that, so that was kind of the edge he had over (Harper) on a weekly basis. Obviously, Harper is a much bigger man and is a different type of runner so that’s why we drafted him, so you would hope he would play at some point. We’ve just got to be patient. I know it’s frustrating for a running back when you’re not getting the chance to play like you’d like to, like he did his rookie year because of (Chris Johnson) holding out, so he’ll be up now, and it’s more or less how the flow of the games go. There’s no plan to, right now, you know, if we carry the ball or not, if we get 10 carries, he won’t be carrying it, but if we do what we hope we do and we’re carrying it 35 times, then hopefully he’ll get a handful of those carries.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Titans won’t be keeping Chris Johnson beyond 2012, not with a $10 million salary due next year, $9 million of which becomes fully guaranteed the week after the next Super Bowl. And it’s not as if the Titans will be turning things around; as Johnson recently said himself, they’re simply not a good team.
