NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- He isn't about to let a sore right ankle sideline him now.
Johnson said Thursday he will play in Sunday's season finale against the Jaguars (2-13). He hurt his ankle in last week's 55-7 loss in Green Bay and missed a second straight practice Thursday.
The running back already has 1,187 yards rushing this season despite an offensive line missing four starters from the preseason. He would need one of his best games to do it, but Johnson could join Eric Dickerson, LaDainian Tomlinson and Emmitt Smith as the only NFL players to run for 7,000 yards in their first five seasons with 168 yards rushing.
