Chris Johnson misses practice Thursday, but fantasy value should be fine

Andy Lyons

Chris Johnson sat out Thursday's practice with a sore ankle, but is expected to return Friday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson (ankle) was held out of practice on Thursday. The Titans draw the Monday Night game this week against the Jets, so this is their first practice of the week. Johnson's sore ankle is not believed to be serious, and he's expected to be back at practice.

Johnson is enjoying a renaissance this season, with 1,037 yards and four TDs on 4.7 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: Doesn't sound like anything to worry about, but we'll keep tracking his status over the weekend. The Titans don't release their official injury report until Saturday.

Johnson has been slumping recently with just 175 rushing yards, zero TDs and 3.3 YPC in the last three games, but he has a prime fantasy matchup with the Jets' 29th ranked rush defense. He's worth starting as an RB2 in the fantasy semifinals.
