Quinn Johnson RB TEN 3 Months
Titans placed FB Quinn Johnson on injured reserve with a quadriceps injury, ending his season.
Johnson suffered the injury in practice this week. FB Collin Mooney was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move. The Titans worked out free agents Michael Robinson and John Conner this week. Either one could be an option next week when their contracts won't be guaranteed for the season.

Packers FB Quinn Johnson was overweight when he showed up for the start of training camp in late July.
Johnson is a 6-foot-1, 263-pound lead blocker, so his weight is probably a tough thing to control. Especially when he doesn't do anything during a locket-marred offseason. Johnson is on the outside looking in at a roster spot.
