Former Pirate Johnson Tunes Up For Camp By Racing Cheetah

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Johnson refuses to spoil the ending, so everyone will just have to tune in come November to see how he fared against a cheetah.

The Titans running back and Chicago receiver Devin Hester took part in the human versus animal race for a cable TV special.

While most people don't give Hester or Johnson much of chance against a cheetah, Johnson says he ran at full speed.

A year ago, some didn't give Johnson a chance against defenses; he was repeatedly questioned whether he had lost a step, or more. He responded by scoring three touchdowns of 80 yards or longer, giving him six in his career.

Now Johnson enters his sixth season with a new position coach and trying to once again run the Titans to the playoffs.
