Chris Johnson listed on team's injury report: Fantasy Implications

Tom Szczerbowski

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was listed on the team's injury report. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was listed on the team's injury report with an ankle, per Titans Twitter account. Despite being listed on the injury report, Johnson was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The alleged injury does not seem to be slowing him down, as Johnson should be ready to go versus the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.

Johnson has had a very rough start to the season, but as of recent, has been getting back to his "CJ2K" form. He could carry that momentum into this week, when the Titans face a very suspects Colts run defense.

Fantasy Analysis: For fantasy owners that have hung tight with Johnson through his trying start to 2012, now is not the time to bench him. Johnson has gashed a couple defenses in the past few weeks, and has another opportunity to against Indianapolis.

Johnson's ankle will not keep him out this weekend and that makes him a must-start. Johnson is in a position to have a monster fantasy day if he shows up.
