    With all the new additions at safety for the Titans, Robert Johnson wants to get back on the practice field as soon as he can. But Johnson isn’t quite back to full health yet.

    The three-year veteran suffered a Lisfranc (midfoot) injury in the 12th game of the season last year, an injury that caused a torn ligament and required season-ending surgery.

    “They put screws (in the foot) for that kind of injury and sometimes they leave them in there for life,” Johnson said Monday during a Titans caravan stop. “But with me, they kind of left it in for a few months and then recently took it out because the torn ligament in my foot has built back pretty well. So I’m excited.

    “I was worried that it was going to be in for my whole career and I’d have to adjust, and I’d put on cleats and I’d feel the screws rubbing against my cleats. But it’s not there any more and it feels great now.”

    Johnson said he’s probably back to about 80 percent right now and hopes to be back on the field by the middle of the Titans’ OTAs in June.

    “To tell you the truth, nobody really knows the timetable,” Johnson said. “I feel like I can go, but I have to be smart and kind of just wait until my body tells me, `RoJo, get out there.’ So I’ll be patient.”

    Johnson started the first two games last year before returning to a reserve role for most of the rest of the year. He posted 13 tackles and an interception.

    Since the end of the season, the Titans have added at least three safeties, signing free agents Bernard Pollard and George Wilson and also drafting Daimion Stafford. Markelle Martin, a safety taken in the sixth round of the 2012 draft, is also expected to be healthy and competitive this season.

    But with all those players considered more strong safeties, Johnson is still listed as the second-string free safety — behind Michael Griffin — on the team’s unofficial depth chart.

    “With the safeties we have, I want to rush back out there,” Johnson said. “But getting experience last year helped me out a lot. It helped me mentally. I know what I can do and what I’m not able to do. So I just want to sit and wait and let this get to 100 percent, then I should be able to get back maybe in the middle of OTAs. But who knows for sure?”

    He should learn to cover before he tries to recover. Measure twice and cut once.

    Yeah. I'm at about 80% recovery mode from having to watch him play.
