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.

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.

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.

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.

The running back rushed for 141 yards on 25 carries, providing one of the few positives for the Titans in a 38-14 defeat.
“Yeah, it was a pretty good game, running the ball or whatever,” Johnson said. “I feel like my offensive line went out there and did a great job from the first snap. Just getting up on guys, pushing those guys back, recreating the line of scrimmage and just giving me somewhere to run. Like I’ve been saying all year, I’m going to be as good as my offensive line.”
Through the first three games, Johnson had 45 yards on 33 carries, an average of 1.4 per attempt. He averaged 5.6 yards per attempt against the Texans and had his longest gain of the season with a 19-yard burst.
It was his first 100-yard game since last December, when he gained 153 yards against the Bills.
Hopefully this wasn't the week you had enough and put Johnson on your bench, and hopefully last week wasn't the week you traded him for a couple of beers and a bag of chips at your next draft. Johnson broke out against a very good defense and hopefully it's a sign of more consistent fantasy production in the coming weeks. The Titans are at the Vikings next week.
