Chris Johnson misses practice; Titans not worried

The storyline in Tennessee surrounding Chris Johnson all offseason has been about how hard he is working. How he shows up for work like never before.

After being in attendance throughout all the voluntary work, Johnson's Tuesday absence from mandatory minicamp was all the more surprising. Titans coach Mike Munchak says it's not a concern.

"He hasn't missed any (OTAs) ... We asked him to be four days a week at least at a minimum, since we started the program, and he has done that," Munchak said, via the Tennessean. "Like I said last week, a lot of the weeks he has been here five out of five days, so it has been good. This is something that we knew he would need some time off for, so he will be back (Wednesday)."

Fair enough. As long as Johnson makes it back for the final two days of the offseason, this doesn't look like a concern.

The Titans probably are more worried about their injured receiving corps. Kenny Britt (knee), first-round draft pick Kendall Wright (shoulder) and O.J. Murdock (Achilles) all were out of practice.
