How will the Jets split carries this season?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) The Jets have to figure out who will get the majority of carries this season out of Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Daryl Richardson, Alex Green and Mike Goodson, reports ESPN.

The report says two of them likely won't make the team, but figuring out the carries could be tough. Johnson averaged 18 rushes per game in his six seasons with the Titans. Ivory averaged 12 per game last season as the Jets' leading rusher. Powell averaged 11 last season. That's a total of 41 rushes for their top three backs.

"Everybody’s goal is to put wins on the board," said Johnson. "We’re not really worried about the carries, who's going to play this down and that down. We’ve all just got one focus and that’s winning."


Alex Green still part of the Jets


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) After tweeting that it was time to "move on" last week, running back Alex Green was believed to have been cut from the Jets. As it turns out, he was referring to something else as he was a participant in a recent Jets practice. 

"When I tweeted that out, I didn't know that we had signed anybody already," Green said Thursday according to the Newark Star-Ledger. "I was talking about more of a personal matter. I kind of had to put my foot in my mouth about tweeting personal things, which I shouldn't do."

Green went on to admit that it will be hard for him to make the Jets roster this summer, particularly after the team signed Chris Johnson and picked up Daryl Richardson off waivers. 


Alex Green says he's been cut


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/17/2014) Running back Alex Green wrote on Twitter that he's been released by the Jets. The team didn't officially announce the move. 

Green later deleted the tweet but Newsday had evidence of the original tweet

"Time to officially move on, life goes on regardless. #blessed" Green wrote. 

Green hasn't scored in three NFL seasons. 


Jets reveal Week 12 inactives


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) In addition to Jeremy Kerley, who is out again with an elbow injury, the Jets' list of inactives for Week 12 at Baltimore includes quarterback David Garrard (knee), linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), running back Alex Green, offensive lineman William Campbell, offensive lineman Ben Ijalana and offensive lineman Oday Aboushi. Green, Campbell, Ijalana and Aboushi are all healthy scratches.

(11/17/2013) Jets quarterback David Garrard, wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow), linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), running back Alex Green, guard William Campbell, tackle Ben Ijalana and tackle Oday Aboushi were among the team's inactives Week 11 at Buffalo.

Jets list 10 offensive players as probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Ten Jets placed on Friday injury report should play Sunday against Buffalo. They are all listed as probable.

The offensive probables are lineman Willie Colon (calf), wide receivers Greg Salas (knee), Santonio Holmes (foot/hamstring), Stephen Hill (foot/knee) and Josh Cribbs (knee), tight ends Kellen Winslow (knee), Zach Sudfeld (knee) and Jeff Cumberland (concussion) and running backs Chris Ivory (knee) and Alex Green (hamstring).

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring), running back Alex Green (hamstring), quarterback David Garrard, guard William Campbell, tackle Ben Ijalana and tackle Oday Aboushi were among the team's inactives for Week 9 vs. New Orleans.

Jets secondary duo should be fine for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) The two Antonios that start in the secondary for the Jets should be ready to roll Sunday against New Orleans. Safety Antonio Allen (finger) and cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip) have both been designated as probable.

Other probables include defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (back), linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee), tight end Konrad Reuland (knee), wide receiver Josh Cribbs (knee), cornerback Darrin Walls (shoulder) and guard Brian Winters (ankle).

Running back Alex Green (hamstring) is questionable.


Several do little for Jets in defeat to Bengals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) When your backup quarterback is your leading rusher, you know you've had a bad game. But that was the sad reality for the Jets in Cincinnati on Sunday, when Matt Simms paced the team with 35 yards on three attempts. Simms was 3 of 7 passing for 17 yards.

Simms was one of several meager contributors in the 49-9 loss. Among the others was running back Alex Green, who added 20 yards on three carries and one reception for 7 yards.

Also catching passes were tight ends Zach Sudfeld (2-10) and Jeff Cumberland (1-9). Sudfeld was a surprise co-starter at that position.


Jets get several minor contributions Week 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) The Jets received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 4 against the Titans.

Fullback Tommy Bohanon was the team's second leading rusher with four carries for 17 yards and caught three passes for 17 yards. Running back Alex Green managed two carries for one yard and caught one pass for a gain of one yard.

In the passing game, wide receiver Clyde Gates caught all three of his targeted passes for 24 yards and wide receiver Ben Obomanu had one catch for eight yards in a 38-13 defeat.

Jets backup runners limited


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Jets backup running back Alex Green and fullback Tommy Bohanon were limited against the Bills.

Green gained 15 yards on 5 carries with Chris Ivory out. Bohanon ran the ball one time, picking up 0 yards. They'll face the Titans Week 4. 


Jets claim running back Alex Green


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Jets claimed running back Alex Green off waivers from the Packers. Green ran for 464 yards in 12 games last season, averaging 3.4 yards per carry.

Packers announce cuts to get down to 53


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) Quarterback Vince Young, running back Alex Green and tight end D.J. Williams were among the veterans cut by the Packers on Saturday. But the team waived many more in getting down to the mandated 53.

The following are also gone: fullback Jonathan Amosa, safeties Chaz Powell and David Fulton, centers Patrick Lewis and Garth Gerhart, tackle Kevin Hughes, wide receivers Miles White, Tyrone Walker and Charles Johnson, linebackers Donte Savage, Dezman Moses and Terrell Manning, cornerbacks Brandon Smith, James Nixon and Loyce Means, defensive tackle Jordan Miller, and tight ends Jake Stoneburner and Matthew Mulligan


Alex Green waived by Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2013) It's not often that a team's rushing leader one season is cut before the next. But when that rushing leader only started four games and gained 464 yards, it's not that unusual. And that was the fate Saturday of Alex Green, who was waived by the Packers, according to ESPN.

Green managed a per-carry average of just 3.4 in 2012. He had been listed last week ahead of veteran James Starks and rookie Eddie Lacy on the team's depth chart, but apparently fell behind both.

The Packers struggled to run the ball throughout the preseason, averaging just 3.0 yards per carry. Ironically, Green managed a better average than all his Green Bay competition for the featured back spot.


Alex Green finds himself on the bubble


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2013) Packers running back Alex Green was listed as the fifth back on the depth chart following Friday's preseason opener against the Cardinals.

Green, who was two weeks removed from taking the first snap of training camp, is now fighting for a spot on the roster. In fact, he has heard his name discussed in trade talks, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Green rushed for 16 yards on seven carries and all of his snaps came with the second- and third-string offense. He would like to play with the first-team offense at some point before the end of preseason.

"I'd like to," Green said. "But whether it's with the first O-line or the fourth O-line, I still have to do my job as a running back. And that's what I'm trying to do ... just make the most of my opportunities."

Packers' backup running backs flop in preseason action


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2013) None of the Packers running backs did much to distinguish themselves in Friday's preseason opener against the Cardinals, but James Starks did see the bulk of the carries over Alex Greenand rookie Johnathan Franklin.

Franklin was the second running back to join the offense, as he replaced Starks at the end of the first quarter and rushing for 14 yards on six carries, with two catches for 12 yards. Green entered the game third, but was slightly more productive than Franklin, rushing for 16 yards on seven carries. 


James Starks, Alex Green not going away


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/31/2013) While the Packers are looking at Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin as the potential top guys at running back, James Starks and Alex Green "came to play," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The report says Starks ran with violence through the first inside-running drill of camp, a flashback to his 2010 postseason. And Green is cutting like he never cut last year, a full year removed from the torn ACL.

The report add those two players cast aside by many outsiders are rising above the rest.


Packers have competition at running back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) The Packers will have a good competition at running back during training camp, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Five running backs -- DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green and James Starks -- will battle for playing time.

The report says each will carry the ball a lot during camp, assuming all are healthy. Harris (chest) will open camp on the PUP list, but the report says once he's recovered from a cyst on his lung he could move to the top of the depth chart based on how last season finished.

But no matter who starts, we could see the Packers run the ball more than ever under coach Mike McCarthy.

"Running the football is a collective effort," McCarthy said. "There has to be commitment from the play-caller. It's something we need to do a better job of and I'm confident that we will."


Green working with starters


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2013) The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that through the Packers OTA workouts and minicamp practices that running back Alex Green started and finished as the No. 1 back ahead of rookies Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin.

Green healthy, ready to compete


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2013) The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Packers running back Alex Green still has designs on starting this season even though Green Bay added rookies Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. "Last year, I didn't do anything too good in the running game," Green said, "so I think it was a great thing for us to get back out there, make a step in the draft and help the team win football games." The report says maybe Green is at peace because he's finally healthy after a torn ACL suffered seven games into his rookie season in 2011. Last offseason, Green hurried back from the injury - prematurely, he admits now - to compete for carries in training camp. He did earn an on-again, off-again role as the team's No. 1 back. But by December the knee was sore and swollen and Green finished the 2012 season on the sideline. At no point, Green said, was he 100 percent last season. "No, I wasn't, I wasn't," Green said. "I came back, I got close to it, but once I got close, then I had a couple setbacks. I was never really quite where I wanted to be, but I made great strides in the off-season. I'm definitely getting ready for this year."

Green came back too soon


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/24/2013) The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that Packers running back Alex Green might have rushed back too soon from his torn ACL in 2011. Green led the team in rushing in 2012 with 464 yards, but he averaged only 3.4 yards per carry. After suffering a torn ACL last season, Green returned in time for training camp, but wore down late in the season. Green sat out for a week after sustaining a concussion against Chicago on Dec. 16. The inactivity led to scar tissue developing in the surgically repaired knee and limiting him to one special teams snap over the team’s last four games. “It probably did. I’m sure it did,” running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said when asked whether Green’s early return led to him wearing down late. “He did a great job getting back for camp. He was limited all through camp and really into the opening part of the season he was limited in practice reps, so that right there tells you it wasn’t 100 percent. His knee wasn’t completely healed, so him battling through that I’m sure had something to do with it breaking down toward the end of the season.”

Green remains sidelined


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2013) Despite being listed as probable after getting through the week of practice, Packers running back Alex Green was inactive for Saturday’s Division playoff game against the 49ers. The return of James Starks pushed Green out of the team’s running back rotation.

Not easy being Green recently


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2013) Packers running back Alex Green failed to register a carry for the second consecutive game during Green Bay's 24-10 victory over Minnesota in an NFC Wild Card game Saturday night. Green, who was active for the contest after being considered probable with a minor knee injury, watched DuJuan Harris earn the start and finish with 17 carries for 47 yards. Harris was one of five Packers players to record a carry against the Vikings.

Green ready for playoff run


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2013) Green Bay running back Alex Green is active for the team's Wild Card matchup against Minnesota after shaking off a minor knee issue. Green was listed as probable on the team's injury report after he practiced in full throughout the past week. He is expected to split carries with Ryan Grant and DuJuan Harris in the Packers' crowded backfield.

Green looks like he'll go vs. Vikings


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/4/2013) The Packers listed running back Alex Green as probable for Saturday's game vs. Minnesota along with rusher James Starks as questionable. Green's knee has kept him on the injury report but he's practiced in full all week. Starks hasn't played in weeks after suffering what is believed to be a bone bruise in his knee.
