Titans expected to release Chris Johnson

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tennessee Titans will reportedly release running back Chris Johnson on Friday.

According to the Tennessean, Johnson was expected to meet with Titans general manager Ruston Webster and undergo a physical. He underwent minor knee surgery in January.

Johnson ran for 1,077 yards with six touchdowns and added 42 receptions for 345 yards with four scores in 16 games last season. His 3.9-yard rushing average, however, was the lowest figure of his six-year career.

The East Carolina product has run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first six NFL seasons, including 2,006 yards with 14 touchdowns in 2009. He also has 2,003 career yards receiving with eight scores.
