Chris Johnson having meniscus surgery

Tennessee Titans star running back Chris Johnson has a busted wheel.

He's having a torn meniscus repaired this week, according to the Tennessean.

“It’s nothing major," Johnson said, "A lot of people don’t know I been playing with it since week 3 of the season."

Johnson is due an $8 million base salary.

If he declines a pay cut request, he could be released.
