Chris Johnson picked up a sprained ankle in the Tennessee Titans' game against the Indianapolis Colts, but the injury is not serious and he is not expected to miss time.

In the Tennessee Titans' crucial game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the visitors. It was not a productive trip to Indy, as the Colts put a huge dent in the Titans' playoff hopes, winning their first game of the season. Chris Johnson struggled to produce in the game and on his only big run of the day, he suffered a sprained ankle. Luckily for the Titans, that ankle sprain does not appear to be serious.

Johnson is sore and could miss some time in practice this week, but should play against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. Johnson has had a very up and down season, but has been productive for the most part in the latter half of the year. The Titans are 7-7, one game behind the final Wild Card spot in the AFC.
