NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee running back Chris Johnson is expected to start Sunday against Jacksonville after returning to practice Friday even though he was limited by an injured right ankle.
Both Johnson and backup Jamie Harper (ankle) are questionable, and coach Mike Munchak says fullback Collin Mooney could be added to the roster before kickoff.
The season's over for tight end Craig Stevens, linebacker Colin McCarthy and center Kevin Matthews, with Munchak ruling them out of the season finale. Stevens suffered his second concussion this year against Green Bay last week, and McCarthy will miss his fifth straight with a concussion suffered Nov. 25. Matthews will miss a second consecutive game with a sprained right ankle.
Munchak also expects receiver Kendall Wright to play after missing last week's game with an injured rib.
