Tennessee Titans running back Javon Ringer has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Ringer missed practice all week and will not be returning any time soon. Ringer first got noticed as the backup to Titans' feature-back Chris Johnson.
While it's a two-back league, Ringer did not really have the chance to solidify his place in the offense. Nevertheless, the Titans will be weaker at running back without him.
Fantasy Analysis: One would hope that given how productive Tennessee has been known to be on the ground, Ringer might have some sort of fantasy relevance. However, it never turned out that way. Ringer had no fantasy value before his injury and the same applies now.
For Chris Johnson owners, hopefully this just means he will take on an even heavier workload to inflate those stats. Ringer's departure from the 2012 season should not make or break anyone's fantasy season.
