Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (knee) practiced Monday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. He hyperextended his right knee, which he had arthroscopic surgery on twice in the last 12 months, in Friday's preseason game.
Insight: Greene is currently atop Tennessee's depth chart, but with Dexter McCluster playing on third downs and rookie Bishop Sankey in the fold, this could be a committee early in the season.
8/10/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene started the preseason opener Saturday against the Packers and had four carries for 20 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Dexter McCluster played on third downs and ran with the second-team ahead of rookie Bishop Sankey. Sankey is going to have to earn a larger role in the offense and could be in a committee to start the season.
8/6/2014 3:31:00 PM
Description: According to Terry McCormick of, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Shonn Greene is the No. 1 running back right now because he's the most experienced.
Insight: Rookie Bishop Sankey is listed third on the depth chart after Dexter McCluster. The Titans will likely open with a backfield committee, but Sankey should move ahead of Greene eventually.

Insight: That gives rookie Bishop Sankey a head start over Greene as the two try to learn Ken Whisenhunt's new offense. With Chris Johnson now in New York, the Titans' backfield is up for grabs. For what it's worth, Greene rushed 77 times for 295 yards and four touchdowns during the 2013 campaign.
10/30/2013 4:46:00 PM
Description: Titans coach Mike Munchak said that running back Shonn Greene should be in the 15-carry range moving forward, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
Insight: Greene returned from a knee injury on Oct. 20 against the 49ers. This is potentially bad news for Chris Johnson owners, as Johnson has averaged just 16.4 carries per game this season.

Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene had a knee scope on Monday. SOURCE: Jim Wyatt, The Tennessean
Insight: He's expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks. Jackie Battle will handle the goal line work for Tennessee while Greene is sidelined.

Description: Tennessee halfback Shonn Greene is unlikely to play Sunday versus Houston. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport,
Insight: He injured his knee in last week's win over Pittsburgh and wasn't able to practice all week. Greene isn't the featured back in Tennessee (that role belongs to Chris Johnson) but he does get goal line work, which makes him somewhat relevant in fantasy. Jackie Battle will fill his role today against a tough Texans run defense.
9/13/2013 2:52:00 PM
Description: Titans backup running back Shonn Greene left the season opener in the second quarter with a knee injury and has missed practice all week.
Insight: Jackie Battle would take over the role of short-yardage guy for Chris Johnson with Greene sidelined. Battle rushed for 21 yards and a TD on eight carries in Week 1.
9/8/2013 2:30:00 PM
Description: Titans backup running back Shonn Greene left the season opener in the second quarter with a knee injury.
Insight: He'll back up Chris Johnson and provide some short yardage and power running, but his main fantasy value will be as a handcuff to Johnson. Jackie Battle takes over the role with Greene sidelined.
8/9/2013 2:10:00 PM
Description: Titans backup running back Shonn Greene rushed five times for 32 yards, including a 19-yard touchdown.
Insight: He'll back up Chris Johnson and provide some short yardage and power running, but his main fantasy value will be as a handcuff to Johnson.
3/13/2013 5:32:00 PM
Description: The Titans have signed Shonn Greene to a three-year, $10 million contract.
Insight: Greene has rushed for 1,000 yards in two straight seasons but we wouldn't exactly call him an impact back. He'll back up Chris Johnson and provide some short yardage and power running even though he doesn't do either of those things particularly well.
12/30/2012 6:14:00 PM
Description: Jets tailback Shonn Greene hurdled over the 1,000 yard barrier with 74 yards on the ground Sunday in a loss at Buffalo.
Insight: Greene eclipsed his previous career-high for a season by only nine yards. It's the second season in a row Greene has gone over 1,000 yards rushing.
12/23/2012 6:41:00 PM
Description: New York halfback Shonn Greene only produced 38 rushing yards Sunday versus the Chargers but he still managed to have a solid fantasy day by finding the end zone twice.
Insight: Greene also had 42 receiving yards, which is a season-high. He'll be going up against Buffalo in Week 17, a team Greene fared pretty well against in Week 1 (94 yards and a TD).
12/9/2012 6:55:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Shonn Greene split carries with Bilal Powell Sunday against the Jaguars but there was plenty to go around for both rushers. Greene finished with 77 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
Insight: Greene may be the guy nobody wants on their fantasy team but he's on pace for a career-high 1,086 yards rushing.
12/2/2012 7:08:00 PM
Description: Jets running back Shonn Greene scrambled for 104 yards Sunday in a win against Arizona.
Insight: Greene only averaged 4.3 yards per carry but hey, 100 yards is 100 yards. All we care about in fantasy are the points and Greene racked up a whole bunch of them on Sunday.
Cold11/20/2012 4:50:00 PM
Description: ESPN New York has reported that Jets head coach Rex Ryan is leaning toward a running back by committee approach.
Insight: Greene hasn't scored a touchdown in his last three games and has only reached the 100-yard plateau once all season. You can expect Greene and Bilal Powell to receive a fairly even workload Thursday night against the Patriots.
11/12/2012 1:38:00 PM
Description: Like the rest of his Jets teammates, running back Shonn Greene did little against Seattle, rushing for 58 yards on 15 carries. He'll face a Rams' run defense next Sunday that gave up 183 yards last weekend to San Francisco.
Insight: Greene has seen his fantasy numbers drop for three consecutive weeks since his breakout game against Indianapolis, but with Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight sidelined by injury, he'll continue to get the majority of the workload.
10/14/2012 5:45:00 PM
Description: Shonn Greene burned the Colts defense for 161 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries.
Insight: Greene was a fast starter in this one and when Bilal Powell left with a shoulder injury, it was all Greene all the time. The rushing total was a career best and the three touchdowns tied his previous best.
9/26/2012 11:07:00 AM
Description: On Monday, coach Rex Ryan said "the Jets were open to trying anything to bolster the rushing attack, including the possibility of more early carries for Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight."
Insight: Sounds like we are about to see a RBBC situation in New York which would put a damper on Greene's fantasy value. Greene had done the majority of the work through the first three weeks with 57 carries for 157 yards and a score. Against the 49ers in Week 4 it is probably a good idea to look in another direction.
9/25/2012 10:34:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN New York, the Jets have no plans to demote Shonn Greene from the starting running back spot. He will get the bulk of the carries Sunday against the 49ers.
Insight: Jets coach Rex Ryan said Monday it's "possible" running back Shonn Greene could cede touches to Bilal Powell or Joe McKnight, but apparently Greene will remain the lead ballcarrier for now. You'd have to be crazy to start Greene this week against the 49ers stout run defense.
