Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson appears to be going under the knife this week.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports that Johnson will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

Via text message with Wyatt, Johnson called the surgery "nothing major" and said he had been dealing with the injury for most of the season.

"People don't know I been playing with it since week 3 of the season."

The 28-year-old totaled 1,077 yards on the ground last season with six rushing touchdowns. He also caught 42 passes for 345 yards and four touchdowns.

The former 2,000-yard running back carries a base salary $8 million next season and has an uncertain future with the Titans.  He told The Tennessean in December he has no plans to take a pay cut.
