Antonio Johnson DL NE 11 months ago

Johnson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery recently and continues to rehab on his own, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

The Titans have no timetable for Johnson's return to practices. The nose tackle appeared in all 16 games for the team last season, finishing with 22 tackles and three sacks. If healthy for the start of 2014, Johnson will likely see a relatively light snap load behind starter Sammie Lee Hill.
