Tennessee running back Javon Ringer has an infection in his left elbow that ballooned up before the Titans' season opener with the New England Patriots. Titans coach Mike Munchak says he has been in and out of the hospital for treatment. Munchak said Monday that Ringer had some swelling in the elbow Friday, but the infection worsened Saturday night. That's when the Titans added the backup running back to the injury report as questionable, but he was deactivated for the 34-13 loss to New England. Jake Locker and linebacker Colin McCarthy both had MRI exams Monday afternoon. Locker hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder on a tackle, but Munchak says he feels good about the quarterback playing San Diego even though Locker may split work in practice Wednesday with Matt Hasselbeck.

Johnson's career-worst day prompts concerns

NASHVILLE Last season as he struggled game after game following a prolonged holdout, the Tennessee Titans' Chris Johnson showed a potentially volatile side of his personality as his team finished ranked 31st in the NFL in rushing. With an offseason that went much more smoothly and in which the Titans made changes that would ostensibly fix those woes, much more was expected...

Tennessee Titans: What To Expect From Chris Johnson

Four was the magic number for Chris Johnson yesterday. Four yards rushing, 47 yards receiving, and four points for fantasy in non-PPR leagues. Certainly those who drafted Johnson spent either a first or second round pick to get the $53 million man. So if and when can owners expect a return on their lofty investment?Short answer - sometime soon. Johnson ebbs and flows around a...

Tennessee Titans: 2012 Week 2 Power Ranking (#11)

Last week: 8 (-3) Record: 0-1 This is the last of the rankings that don’t make any sense, I promise. Before the season, I had the Titans as better than the Ravens. Are Titans better than Ravens? Probably not, but I’m not flip flopping after 1 week. I’d rather just be wrong than flip flop and turn out to be right all along. The Titans ran into the wrong team last week, while...

Titans reportedly ‘grumbling’ about OC Chris Palmer

Entering his second year in Tennessee, offensive coordinator Chris Palmer was tasked with starting a young, somewhat unproven quarterback, reviving a once record-setting running back, and incorporating a rookie receiver into an inconsistent passing attack. It goes without saying that Palmer has his work cut out for him, especially after the team's 34-13 blowout loss to...

Tennessee Titans sign OG Deuce Lutui

The Tennessee Titans today reportedly signed guard Deuce Lutui to a one-year deal. Lutui worked out for the Titans last week but the Titans waited until after Week 1 to sign them, likely because they can now cut him with no further obligation to pay his salary. A second-round pick out of USC in 2006, Lutui spent the first six seasons of his career with the Arizona Cardinals...

Titans' Locker hurts shoulder again

For the second time in this young NFL season, the Tennessee Titans are dealing with The Hurt Locker. Titans quarterback Jake Locker injured his left, non-throwing shoulder after being sacked in the first quarter of 38-14 road loss to the Houston Texans. He returned to the sideline in the second quarter in street clothes with his left arm in a sling. Locker hurt the same shoulder...

Titans see gap in 34-13 loss to Patriots

Mistakes, blown chances, and a long day for quarterback Jake Locker in his first career start for the Tennessee Titans. Not a winning formula, especially when the New England Patriots are the opponent. Locker threw for 229 yards and a touchdown, but had two turnovers and was sacked twice as the Patriots beat the Titans 34-13 on Sunday. The Titans also missed tackles and couldn...

New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans: Hero and Zero of the Game
