CHRIS JOHNSON has agreed to a contract extension with the Tennessee Titans worth $56 million over 6 years, ending the three-time Pro Bowl running back's holdout. "He'll sign tomorrow and take his physical and be ready to start practicing," Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt said last night before Tennessee played New Orleans in a final preseason game. "It was a tough negotiation, but both sides gave some and we got it done. " Johnson tweeted Wednesday night that he had dinner in Orlando, Fla., with his agent Joel Segal "talking business" on the 34th day of his holdout.

Chris Johnson's agent says the running back and the Tennessee Titans have agreed on a revised deal that will ensure he reports with the rest of the team for training camp. Agent Joel Segal would not say how much of a raise Johnson is getting, but did say the running back will get a pay increase. Johnson will reportedly earn $2.5 million this season under the revised deal. It's not the minimum $30 million in guaranteed money he had been saying he wanted after becoming just the sixth back to run for at least 2,000 yards.

NASHVILLE - It used to be that Ernie Sims would be all smiles about the wood he laid on Chris Johnson. He'd consider his job well-done, his hard-hitting reputation burnished. That was last week. Yesterday, Sims flew in from his linebacker spot and crushed Johnson near the Titans' sideline. It was late in the first quarter. It was the signature hit in the Eagles' effort to limit Johnson, the league's No. 2 rusher. The effort worked. Johnson managed 66 yards on 22 carries. The hit might cost Sims dearly.

Chris Johnson attends classes at Penn's Wharton School. He's a management major. Very genteel. Very white-collar. But when classes are over, he transforms himself into a snarling, head- butting, sumo-wrestling nose tackle for the Quakers' football team. At 5-foot-11 and 245 pounds, Johnson has the perfect build for a nose tackle. He endures upwards of 70 to 80 collisions per game with the center or guards trying to double-team him, or with the fullbacks leading their runners up the middle.

Chris Johnson shot a 5-under-par 67 yesterday to take a 2-stroke lead after the first round of the du Maurier Classic, in Woodbridge, Ontario. The tournament is the last of the LPGA's four Grand Slam events. "It started as one of those days when nothing was predictable when we teed off," said Johnson, who took last week off after the women's U.S. Open championship. "I wasn't sure if I'd had enough rest. But when I went out and birdied the first two holes, I felt just great. " Johnson's round included a four-foot eagle putt on the 450-yard, par-5 4th hole to go along with five birdies and two bogeys.

LES BOWEN The Titans have won their last 11 games against the NFC. Tennessee and Indianapolis, the Birds' next two opponents, are the only teams in the NFL Andy Reid never have beaten. But the Eagles and Titans haven't played since a 31-13 Titans win at the Linc on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2006. That game was memorable because of the ACL tear Donovan McNabb suffered. Anyhow, I guessed completely wrong about the then-4-1 Falcons last week. Turned out they were a one-dimensional power running team that couldn't pressure the quarterback.

John Mahaffey, J. C. Snead, Jim Thorpe and Steve Pate each shot 6-under-par 65s yesterday, and the group of veterans held a 1-stroke lead after the first round of the Bank of Boston Classic. Brad Faxon and Don Pooley were at 66 as the touring pros went on a par- breaking spree over the 7,110-yard Pleasant Valley Country Club course. Of the 156 starters, 67 broke par and 21 others matched it. Defending champion Mark Calcavecchia, who won the British Open and is tuning up for next week's Ryder Cup matches in England, shot a 67 and was in a group of 10 players 2 shots behind the leaders.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rob Bironas kicked his fourth field goal, a 40-yarder as time expired, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-23, on Thursday night to snap a two-game skid. Pittsburgh (2-3) lost its third straight road game this season and for the fifth time in six games dating to last season despite Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 363 yards and becoming the Steelers' career passing leader. Roethlisberger came the game needing 286 yards to tie Terry Bradshaw's 27,989 yards passing.

Jets at Titans 8:30 p.m., ESPN Line: Titans by 11/2 The skinny: The Jets have turned to the running game over the last month to help limit turnovers and have kept their slim playoff hopes alive. Tennessee is allowing 129.4 yards rushing per game, 27th in the league, and couldn't get off the field last week vs. the Colts to get the ball back for the offense. The Jets (6-7) are a game out of the AFC's sixth and final playoff seed and finish against three teams with losing records starting with the Titans (4-9)

MIAMI - With every foul ball, Andres Blanco muttered to himself. Blanco does not play often, and he savors his time in the batter's box. In the eighth inning of a 4-3 Phillies comeback win over the Marlins on Saturday night, the bench player bore the weight of an inept offense. "That's the only chance you have," Blanco said. "What can I say to myself? Don't give up. Just hit it. Put the ball in play. I keep talking to myself. All the time. I'm an angry guy. " He laughed, but with every foul ball, Blanco revived the Phillies.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 13 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Browns. Dalton tossed three TDs with no interceptions when these teams faced off in Week 9, and was nearly as sharp last week against a solid Rams secondary. Meanwhile, Cleveland's pass defense is one of the softest in the league. Time to load the Red Rifle. Javorius Allen, RB, Ravens at Dolphins. Allen got his feet wet as a starter on Monday night and acquitted himself well.

HERE WE ARE, knocking on the door of November and the NFL's top three rushers are Devonta Freeman, Chris Johnson and Doug Martin. OK, whoever saw this coming in August, can you email me Saturday's Powerball numbers? Please? Freeman is the hottest sensation among fantasy running backs. When people were wondering this past summer about fantasy sleepers, this is the guy they were searching for. A fourth-round pick out of Florida State in 2014, Freeman has four 100-yard outings in the five games since becoming the Falcons starter.

Here's a look at players worthy for your consideration to add to your team, and others who would look better in someone else's lineup. Catch 'em while you can Chris Johnson, RB, Cardinals. Johnson is expected to play a lead role in Arizona's backfield while Andre Ellington recovers from his knee injury. Rookie David Johnson, who scored on a 55-yard catch and run, will also be in the mix. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos. The Broncos looked ragged against the Ravens even before C.J. Anderson left with a sprained toe. Hillman ran hard and surely has earned additional playing time.

AFTER SCORING a season-high 12 runs the night before, the Phillies only crossed home plate twice in yesterday's 6-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves, who salvaged the series finale behind a strong outing from starting pitcher Julio Teheran. The Phillies, now 12-3 since the All-Star break, missed out on a chance for their third series sweep of the second half. "We took three out of four and that's a nice little start," interim manager Pete Mackanin said. "The story was Teheran was good and [Adam]

It was like any other Friday morning for Chris Johnson, a volunteer at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University: Help clean the butterfly exhibit, feed the insects, check to see if any new ones emerged overnight. Black ones, red ones, spotted ones, and -. Whoa. As Johnson watched, an adult butterfly unfolded wings that were deep brown with tan spots on the right side, and black with a border of jade, violet, and light-blue on the left. Johnson knew that the creature, which had been shipped from Malaysia in its pupal stage, was a gynandromorph: half male and half female.

ORLANDO - Last night marked the 26th game of the season for the 76ers and coach Brett Brown rolled out his 13th different starting lineup. It certainly can be a part of the reason his club continues to search for continuity on the floor and a big part of why they lead the league with 19 turnovers a game and the worst scoring average at 91.2. Much of the shuffling has been done due to injuries. Much of it due to the variety of trades and call-ups the team seems to make on a weekly basis.

AS HAS BEEN the case for the duration of this current rebuild, the Sixers fight. At times - such as last night - they're undermanned, undersized, underskilled, but they'll make the opposition work for 48 minutes. That was the case when the Sixers welcomed the Chicago Bulls - one of the Eastern Conference's best team - to town and nearly erased a 16-point fourth-quarter deficit, before running out of time, letting the Bulls escaped with a 118-115 victory. A three-pointer from Chris Johnson got the Sixers within a point with 5 seconds to play after Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich uncharacteristically missed a pair of free throw attempts.
