NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Johnson is back practicing, though limited for the Tennessee Titans. Barring any soreness in his ankle, the running back should play Saturday against Jacksonville.

Johnson hurt his right ankle in last week's loss at Indianapolis and did not practice Tuesday or Wednesday.

Coach Mike Munchak said Johnson was limited Thursday but looked pretty good running. Munchak says that Johnson should be in good shape unless he has soreness in the ankle from the work he did Friday.

Linebacker Gerald McRath did not practice with his sprained left knee and ankle. Linebacker Patrick Bailey (hamstring) and defensive end William Hayes (groin) both practiced on Thursday, as did receiver Nate Washington (ankle).

Defensive end Dave Ball practiced after missing Wednesday while his wife gave birth to a son.
