Titans Concerned About Johnson's Absence

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports that the Tennessee Titans coaches are more concerned about Chris Johnson's absence during the "Organized Team Activity" sessions than Johnson's teammates are.

"Not only has he missed the conditioning, but from an offensive standpoint he hasn't had a day with his new running backs coach (Kennedy Pola)," head coach Jeff Fisher said "So he's missed a lot.

"He'll have some catching up to do. And it's certainly better for everyone involved if he is familiar with whatever changes and special types of things we're doing for him offensively."

Johnson, who has remained cognizant of the NFL's 30-day rule and won't skip much of training camp (if he misses any days at all), doesn't seem concerned, saying "We got a long camp. We got a whole month of camp before the first game. We got a whole preseason so that should help. It won't be a problem", a sentiment echoed by teammate Nate Washington.

"C.J. is not a football illiterate person. He has been playing football his whole life, and we are very confident he has been working out," Washington said. "We are not worried about where he'll be at physically or where he'll be at mentally and what he needs to be caught."

Titans quarterback Vince Young also weighed in on the issue.
