Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur is worried Johnson is about to get going because he’s seen how the running back can change games with one carry. He also credited the defenses Tennessee has played with bottling up Johnson and the Titans.

“I know what skill and ability he possesses,” Shurmur said. “I’m seeing solid run schemes, I’m seeing an outstanding running back, and I’m seeing a team that throws the ball well, so there is going to be a point when he gets his yards, we just hope it’s not this week.”

Johnson said once they all get back on the same page the Titans will be back to their usual rushing success and isn’t frustrated just yet.

“I could see if we was 0-3 it’d be worse,” Johnson said. “But we’re sitting here 2-1 and the running game’s not where it’s supposed to be and we’re 2-1. So just imagine once the running game gets going, it can be better things.”

Notes: S Chris Hope (shoulder) practiced fully for the first time Wednesday since hurting his shoulder Sept. 11 at Jacksonville. LB Gerald McRath (left knee) did not practice.
