Titans' Johnson third in AFC Pro Bowl voting

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 at 5:21pm


Chris Johnson is third among AFC running backs in voting for the Pro Bowl with 184,207 votes.

Cedric Benson of the Cincinnati Bengals has 321,552 votes, well ahead Johnson, who leads the NFL in rushing with 1,091 yards. Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars is second in the balloting with 191,293 in the AFC.

Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson leads all running backs with 529,319 votes.

Fan balloting counts as one third of the voting, while coaches votes and players votes make up the other two thirds.

No other Titans player is among the top five in the fan voting at any position this season.

Velasco to return

The Titans were expected to add Fernando Velasco back to their practice squad in a move that amounts to a trade out of receiver Dominique Edison for Velasco. Velasco was added to the 53-man roster before the San Francisco game because of injuries to David Stewart and Mike Otto, and was waived before the Buffalo game for Edison, because the injury to Justin Gage left the team short at wide receiver.
