Chris Johnson injury: Titans RB questionable to return

Andy Lyons

The Titans could be without their leading running back for the rest of the game against the Packers.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers after leaving with an ankle injury. Johnson appeared "OK" walking around on the sideline.

The running back, who was heavily criticized in 2011, had just six yards on five carries before leaving. Johnson struggled mightily last season, rushing for 1,047 yards on 4.0 yards per carry but has had a resurgence in 2012. Coming into Week 16, Johnson has run for 1,159 yards on 244 carries for an average of 4.8 yards per carry. Johnson also has the longest run of the season, a 94-yard scamper against the Jets last Monday night.

Backup Jamie Harper is in at running back for Tennessee.

No running back besides Johnson has played anything but very sparingly this season. Jake Locker is second on the team in carries with 32, and backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is third on the team in rushing yards behind Johnson and Locker.

Harper has 13 carries for 11 yards and three touchdowns.
