Rookie RB Harper Ready to Fill in for Injured Ringer

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 15, 2011 – 2:15 pm

With backup running back Javon Ringer ruled out of Sunday’s game with a hand injury, rookie Jamie Harper steps into the lead backup role behind Chris Johnson when the Titans take on Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Harper, the team’s fourth-round pick out of Clemson, has played primarily on special teams this season, rushing just seven times for 16 yards and catching one pass for 21 yards. Most remember the 5-foot-11, 233-pound running back from the preseason when he led the club in rushing with 168 yards and three touchdowns on 38 attempts (4.4 avg) with a long of 46 at St. Louis.

Harper’s Preseason Highlights: 46-yard run | 9-yard TD | 1-yard TD

Now he’ll look to spell Ringer, who averaged around five to six touches per game prior to being injured.

“I’ve been sitting back learning and watching everything so I would be ready to go whenever my opportunity came up,” Harper said.

That opportunity will come Sunday, and head coach Mike Munchak has all the confidence in the world in his rookie running back.

“He is a good, hard, heavy runner,” Munchak said. “He is a nice change of pace from a CJ (Chris Johnson) kind of running back. We are lucky to have a third running back that we feel that good about.”

Harper realized he would have to wait his turn, especially sitting  two spots back on the depth chart of a player that had rushed for more than 4,500 yards in his first three season.

“It really wasn’t difficult. It’s the process of growing up,” Harper said. “When you have a great running back like Chris Johnson in front of you, there’s not much you can really do with that being a rookie.”

Munchak said Harper has been receiving lots of reps in practice and believes the running back’s confidence is high based on what he accomplished in the preseason.

Harper agrees.

“Having that under my belt is good,” Harper admitted. “This organization drafted me for a reason so now it’s a matter of going out there and doing what I’m capable of.”
