Shonn Greene | RB | Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene has seen few carries with the team working out of three-wide personnel sets. The Titans have rushed the ball 184 times this season, with 92 carries in three-wide sets. Greene has been the ball carrier just seven times in those 92 plays. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday, Nov. 5, that he hopes the team is running well out of base sets, which will create more chances for Greene.
Huddle Up: Because who wouldn't want more chances for a guy who hasn't topped 3.3 yards per carry in a game since Week 2? Any carries Green gets take directly from the development (and fantasy plate) of Bishop Sankey, setting the franchise back even further. But yay, more unproductive carries for Shonn Greene!

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Oct. 15 and said he hopes he can return to practice next week and be ready to play Week 8.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, Oct. 10, and is listed as doubtful for Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: It looks like Greene will miss his first game of the season. Dexter McCluster will be involved in picking up the slack, but certainly expect a season-high workload for rookie Bishop Sankey against a team giving up the third most fantasy points to opposing RBs.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) said the hamstring he injured during practice Wednesday, Oct. 8, is pretty sore. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he is not sure if Greene will be able to play in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Greene has logged the most carries in 4 of the Titans' 5 games so far, but this could actually be the week that second-round pick Bishop Sankey gets the chance to shine in what's also a plumb matchup against the Jags.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene lost five to 10 pounds to meet the team's weight goal after he missed most of camp due to knee surgery.
Huddle Up: Greene remains ensconced as the Titans' first-team running back, at least until Bishop Sankey masters enough of the nuances of the position to bump him aside. There's a modicum of fantasy value here to start the season, but not much in the way of long-term value.

Huddle Up: Greene is still vying to hold off highly touted second-round pick Bishop Sankey for the Titans' starting RB gig, and the veteran has had the better rushing stats this preseason, averaging 5.1 yards per rush on 13 attempts and finding the end zone once. Stay tuned . . .

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) said Friday, Aug. 15, that he suffered a hyperextended knee in the preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. Greene suspects he will be OK.
Huddle Up: The injury is to the same knee that Greene had two surgeries on last year, but he'll be considered day to day. Bishop Sankey will likely get an extended look with the first team in practice this week, which could bode well for the rookie.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) suffered a right knee injury in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New Orleans Saints. He was on the sideline icing his right knee after departing.
Huddle Up: The extent of Greene's injury isn't known yet but if he's out for an extended period, it will open the door for rookie Bishop Sankey to see more carries. Greene is currently getting drafted in the Round 13 area, while Sankey has an ADP of Round 5.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene needs to lose five to ten pounds during training camp, according to the coaching staff.
Huddle Up: This isn't good news for a guy trying to win a starting job. Greene is coming off a year where he averaged 3.8 yards per carry and there have been reports that his roster spot in Tennessee may not be secure. All signs are pointing to rookie Bishop Sankey being the Titans top RB this season. Sankey currently carries an ADP of Round 5.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is ready for training camp after missing time in the offseason due to a right knee injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up: Greene is the veteran fallback plan to Bishop Sankey, and while he may horn in on more action than Sankey owners would like to believe he'll be more of a complimentary piece in Tennessee than a true feature-back option.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene could be cut if his injured right knee continues to prevent him from working out this offseason, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Wyatt believes the team will opt to save the $2.3 million it owes Greene if he won't be able to contribute.
Huddle Up: . . . rookie RB Bishop Sankey just keeps looking better and better.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene had surgery on his right knee and is expected to miss the remainder of offseason training activities.
Huddle Up: Greene is expected back by training camp, but if any complications arise, second-round pick Bishop Sankey -- the first RB selected in this year's draft -- will gain even more traction on fantasy draft boards.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene is on the spot to at least make the team pause a few rounds before drafting a running back next month in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: After back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Jets, Greene only managed 295 yards and 4 TDs in 77 carries while backing up Chris Johnson last year. His 3.8 yards per carry was a career low, so don't be surprised if the Titans use a pick in the top 3 rounds to draft a RB to form a new 1-2 punch.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene said he will be fine with being part of a running back committee because it will allow the players to stay fresh. 'Nowadays it's not just one back getting the job done, it's done by committee. I take that as a good thing, because it keeps guys fresh, it keeps guys healthy, no one takes a beating like you once did when you had one back, when you used a [workhorse] back. So I welcome all those guys on the roster to come help the team out so we can get where we need to be,' Greene said.
Huddle Up: Look for the Titans to draft a back in May, and depending how high of a pick they use, Greene could remain the No. 2 RB option in Nashville.
