The Tennessee Titans fear a fourth-quarter knee injury might end backup running back Javon Ringer's season, according to the Tennessean.

Ringer was taken off the field in a cart after being tackled following a reception in the Titans' 30-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. He was seen using crutches in the post-game locker room.

“I just have to deal with it,” Ringer said. “I can’t change it now. I have to get an MRI.”

Said coach Mike Munchak: “He was obviously in a lot of pain when he got injured. … You lose a game, that’s bad enough. When you get guys hurt, that’s the hard part about this.”

It's the second serious injury for Ringer in 2012. He missed a game after an elbow injury suffered in the Titans' season-opener became infected. Ringer underwent two surgeries and spent four nights in the hospital as a result of a cellulitis elbow infection. He said doctors told him the infection could have cost him his arm.

The loss of Ringer won't help the 1-4 Titans' unproductive running game. Chris Johnson has struggled in 2012, gaining less than 25 yards in four of five games.
