Tennessee running back Chris Johnson looks likely to be cut from the Titans roster after surgery, say reports from Yahoo

According to Jason Cole of the website, a source close to Johnson said recently that he was unlikely to take a pay cut this offseason. 

Johnson, who rushed for over 2000 yards in the 2009 season is currently earning about $8 million a year, which Tennessee wanted to restructure to free up more money to use in the off-season.

The #28 told newspaper The Tennessean that he had played the majority of the season with a torn meniscus in his knee. When discussing the surgery itself Johnson texted "It's nothing major, people don't know I been playing with it since week 3 of the season."

Johnson rushed for 90 yards in that  game against the San Diego Chargers. Tennessee won the contest 20-17. In spite of the injury, Johnson rushed for 1,077 yards and six touchdowns this season as he emerged as their major offensive threat. 

Johnson said earlier this month that he felt his talents were being wasted in Tennessee. The Titans unveiled Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach, but the running back still looks dead on to leave.
