Dexter McCluster, Shonn Greene splitting bulk of snaps through two weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) The running back situation for the Titans remains a guessing game, as head coach Ken Whisenhunt continues to split the workload among four running backs.

Dexter McCluster dominated the backfield timeshare through two weeks, playing 52 offensive snaps to Shonn Greene's 40. However, Greene currently leads the team in rushing with 111 yards on 20 carries. McCluster has 59 yards through the ground on 13 carries, with two catches on three targets. 

Bishop Sankey has only played 14 snaps this season, 10 of which came in Week 1. He has eight carries for 28 yards, which ranks third among his running mates. Although Leon Washington has played 22 snaps, he's gotten only four touches. Washington has two carries for 23 yards through two weeks.


Titans' RB situation remains a guessing game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The Titans used four different running backs -- Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster, Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington -- during a Week 1 win at Kansas City, with Greene leading the way with 71 rushing yards on 15 carries.

Though, the pecking order at running back appears to be a flexible situation heading into Week 2 against the Cowboys.

"We're going to have different personnel in and out and I think that's what's going to make this group special," McCluster said, per ESPN. "As far as me, we really don't have a set amount of carries, plays or touches. It's just kind of all how the game unfolds. It's how the game comes. With us really not knowing who's going to get in next, it keeps the defense in a frenzy, too."

Sankey didn't get his first carry until the third quarter Sunday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that wasn't the plan regarding the rookie running back.

"It just evolves," Whisenhunt said. "He could be in the first snap this week. It really depends on the plan and what we are doing. The thing that is important to me, it’s what he did when he went in it was how he played. I thought he did a nice job."


Titans to use four backs every week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Titans' official website expects coach Ken Whisenhunt to continue splitting the workload among four running backs. In the Week 1 win at Kansas City, Shonn Greene got 15 carries, Dexter McCluster nine, Bishop Sankey six and Leon Washington two.

"The number of carries will vary per week depending on the situation of the game, but it is clear that all four guys will be a part of the Titans' game plan on a weekly basis," the website said.


Titans pencil in Shonn Greene as starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Shonn Greene is the Titans' starting running back, according to the team's first depth chart. He's followed by Dexter McCluster, rookie Bishop Sankey and Leon Washington.

The depth chart contradicts the conventional wisdom that Sankey, the first back drafted, will end up leading Tennessee in carries.


What's the Titans' plan at running back?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) With the release of running back Chris Johnson, the Titans plan a committee approach in 2014, reports The Tennessean. Shonn Greene is "likely to see a big boost in his responsibilities," the report said. "Greene isn't a breakaway threat, but he's proven he can be a workhorse."

Dexter McCluster is expected to get more touches at running back after getting 20 combined carries the past two years in Kansas City. He'll be the primary receiving threat out of the backfield. Jackie Battle is a 6-2, 240-pounder who's see most of his snaps in short-yardage or goal-line situations, the paper said.

The Titans also have Leon Washington and likely will draft a running back, perhaps Auburn's Tre Mason, Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey or Washington's Bishop Sankey, the report said.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Leon Washington a practice participant on Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) The struggling Ravens ground game could at least have another option available this week. Leon Washington was back at practice on Wednesday after being sidelined virtually all season with an ankle injury.

Washington had one carry for 1 yard in Week 2 - that has been the extent of his work in 2013. It remains to be seen if he receives more reps going forward with top two backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce struggling mightily.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Those three are joined by offensive lineman Chris Barker, linebacker Steve Beauharnais, defensive end Jake Bequette and wide receiver Josh Boyce on the inactive list.
