Bengals rookie wide receiver Chad Johnson may not play Sunday against the Titans after coach Dick LeBeau got another look at him during Friday's practice.

"If we were playing tomorrow, he probably wouldn't go," said LeBeau, leaning to a game-time decision. "I'm not going to rush him if he looks like he's not ready to go."

Johnson, the Bengals' fastest receiver, hasn't played since breaking his left collarbone against the Browns

But if he's able to play, LeBeau will use Johnson as the third receiver with starters Darnay Scott and Peter Warrick.

"Chad is getting better every day," LeBeau said. "We've got a lot of depth at that position. "

Every other Bengal besides left guard Matt O'Dwyer, who is out with a sprained knee, looks to be available.
