Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) will participate in football activities this week and may be available to play Week 7.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee), QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) and LB Zaviar Gooden (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and have been ruled out for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Favorable news for all the Jackie Battle owners out there as it'll be the 5th straight missed game for Greene, who hasn't played since rushing 4 times for 18 yards in the season opener.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) had arthroscopic surgery Monday, Sept. 16, according to sources. Greene might be sidelined a few weeks.
Huddle Up: Greene was hurt in the opener, and Jackie Battle has been elevated to the No. 2 back behind Chis Johnson. Battle scored in Week 1, but was limited to 13 yards on 6 carries on Sunday.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said he is optimistic that RB Shonn Greene (knee) will be able to play Week 2 but will see how he progresses during the week.
Huddle Up: Greene had 18 yards on 4 carries before leaving with a second-quarter knee issue that's not believed to be serious. However, see if the RB can get in some practice work this week. Jackie Battle finished up as the No. 2 back behind starter Chris Johnson on Sunday and had 21 yards and a TD on 8 carries.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team will use RB Shonn Greene in different ways next season and not only as a short yardage back. "We're not going to have him as a short-yardage back, a goal-line back and four-minute back and that's all he does. We feel he can play all three downs. He may get a series where he gets going and we're taking over the line of scrimmage and you want that runner in there and we leave him in there," Munchak said.
Huddle Up: Green is by definition a short-yardage back, because the vast majority of his carries result in short yardage. And he'll only be effective if the Titans are, as Munchak puts it, taking over the line of scrimmage. He's insurance and a backup plan to Chris Johnson, with a worst-case fantasy scenario being that he houses any goal-line opportunities CJ used to get.

The Tennessee Titans want to sign free-agent RB Shonn Greene during his visit Wednesday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Greene would give the Titans an intriguing thunder/lightning backfield combo, with Chris Johnson and Greene at diametric opposites of the speed (and yards per carry) spectrum.

Free-agent RB Shonn Greene was a league-best 11-for-11 converting third-down runs of less than three yards last season.
Huddle Up: The thing about Greene is that most of his runs went for three yards or less. He could find work as a complementary back, but his only fantasy success will come as a goal line guy--and he'll need to be running behind a decent offensive line to do so.

The Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos are among the teams expected to show interest in New York Jets impending free-agent RB Shonn Greene this offseason.
Huddle Up: Greene would be a good fit for both clubs, who need a between-the-tackles grinder. In Atlanta, Greene would step in as a younger, fresher of Michael Turner, who is expected to be released.

New York Jets impending free-agent RB Shonn Greene would be a good fit for the San Diego Chargers in the offseason. The team needs a legitimate running back because RB Ryan Mathews is not durable. If healthy, Mathews and Greene could be a good combination.
Huddle Up: Both players have been regarded as No. 1 fantasy backs, but this could be a productive pairing with Greene's ability to pound out yards between the tackles and Mathews' third-down skills.
