Javon Ringer is questionable for Week 3 against the Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.
Tennessee Titans RB Javon Ringer (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Ringer was inactive for two weeks in a row with a scary elbow infection that nearly cost him his arm. He got in a full week of practice and is expected to suit up on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Good news for Ringer, who got his arm saved by doctors and will continue to enjoy an NFL career. Bad news for Chris Johnson, who is on thin ice after a miserable start to the season. CJ1.1YPC got the dreaded "vote of confidence" from Mike Munchak, mostly because they didn't have much depth at RB, but he'll be out of excuses if Ringer is ready to play this week and Johnson struggles again.
