NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Chris Johnson needs only 50 yards to reach 1,000 yards for a sixth straight season, which would put the Titans running back in exclusive company.
He's going to try and reach the milestone Sunday in what might be his last game in a Tennessee uniform because of his very pricey contract.
Johnson is due $8 million in 2014, part of $29 million he's due over the next three seasons. Yet Johnson needs what would be his second-best performance this season when he plays Houston to avoid the worst rushing year of his career.
The running back said Thursday his future is sort of out of his hands when it comes to the business of the NFL.
Coach Mike Munchak says Johnson's durability is taken for granted because he's never missed a game.
