Chris Johnson set to have surgery on torn meniscus


Chris Johnson, who played with a torn meniscus since Week 3, is now set to have surgery. As reported earlier, Johnson already stated that he wants an increased role in the Titans offense, or he wants out. Now, more than ever, it looks as if Johnson will be out.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, the Titans are planning on asking Johnson to take a pay cut or be released. As you would expect, Johnson has no plans to succumb to Tennessee’s demands.

The surgery, which will be performed by Dr. James Andrews, will bring a 4- to 6-week recover period, by which time Johnson will undoubtedly be entering the free-agent market.

The former MVP candidate has fallen greatly since he rushed for 2,000 yards, but a change in scenery may be exactly what Johnson needs. People forget that he is only 28-years old. If the right team gets ahold of him, Johnson could still have a lot left in the tank.
