Default Titans Waive Stafon Johnson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans waived injured rookie running back Stafon Johnson, the former Southern California standout whose college career was ended by a weightlifting accident that crushed his neck.

As soon as he clears waivers, coach Jeff Fisher said they will put him on injured reserve to keep him around the training facilities during his recovery.

Kuharsky: What Now For Johnson?
There was no way the Titans could hold a roster spot open for Stafon Johnson with the rookie expected to miss eight to 12 weeks, making Tuesday's move the only option, Paul Kuharsky writes. Blog

Johnson dislocated his right ankle and broke his fibula Saturday night in the Titans' 20-18 loss at Seattle. Before Tuesday's move, Fisher had said Johnson would be out up to 12 weeks recovering from what he called "major reconstructive surgery."
