Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 7.
Insight: Bishop Sankey will be the lead back, with Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington mixing in as well.
 
10/17/2014 10:04:00 AM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 7 and hopes to start practicing next week, according to John Glennon of The Tennessean.
Insight: He has 44 carries for 190 yards and one touchdown this season. This was expected, and it gives rookie tailback Bishop Sankey another huge opportunity.
 
10/12/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) is out Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: This was expected, and it gives rookie tailback Bishop Sankey a huge opportunity to become Tennessee's lead dog. Expect Dexter McCluster to be mixed in as well.
 
10/9/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to practice Thursday and his availability could come down to Friday's practice.
Insight: If Greene is a no-go, that adds to Bishop Sankey's fantasy value in a favorable matchup against a weak Jacksonville defense.
 
9/16/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene was unable to build on a strong start to the season, against Dallas.
Insight: After registering 71 rushing yards in Week 1, Greene only managed five carries for 40 yards in Week 2. He is still the lead back in Tennessee, however owners should continue to expect inconsistent play. Greene is no more than a flex/RB3 option moving forward.
 
8/23/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Titans running back Shonn Greene ran the ball six times for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Insight: Given the size of the Tennessee offensive line and a below average Atlanta front seven, its disappointing Greene did not have a much better showing. He remains the starter for now, but we doubt he will remain in front of rookie Bishop Sankey.
 
8/18/2014 7:23:00 PM
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 TitansInsider.com, 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.
 
9/16/2013 9:34:00 PM
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.
 
9/15/2013 10:11:00 AM
Description: Tennessee halfback Shonn Greene is unlikely to play Sunday versus Houston. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
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.
