Coaches want Shonn Greene to lose weight


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Titans coaches want running back Shonn Greene to lose 5-10 pounds, reports the Tennessean. Greene is coming back from arthroscopic knee surgery in May. He's listed at 5-11, 233 pounds.

The report did not say how much Greene weighs now.


Shonn Greene cleared to practice


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Titans running back Shonn Greene is expected to practice with the team for the start of training camp, reports ESPN.

The report says the team won't overextend him early. Greene is coming off knee surgery this offeason.

He is expected to compete for touches with Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster.


Titans could use committee approach in backfield


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Even though rookie running back Bishop Sankey is expected to "be the busiest back this season in terms of carries and production" for the Titans, the team could still use a running back by committee approach, reports the Tennessean.

The report says Sankey will share playing time with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster. The Titans want Greene to be their power back in goal-line and short-yardage situations, and McCluster has to prove he's more than a specialty back and pass catcher.

The Tennessean recently projected Sankey for more than 1,200 total yards and seven touchdowns. Based on those projections, Sankey would have finished as a Top 20 Fantasy running back in 2013.


Shonn Greene must 'prove his worth' in training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Running back Shonn Greene's roster spot is not 100 percent secure, reports the Tennessean. The Titans drafted Bishop Sankey in the second round and plan to use Dexter McCluster in the backfield too.

Cutting Greene, who was "underwhelming" last season, would save the team $2.3 million, the report said. Greene is rehabbing from another knee surgery and won't take part in OTAs, "so he'll need to prove his worth in camp," the paper said.


Shonn Greene recovering from knee surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Titans running back Shonn Greene had surgery on his right knee recently and will be held out of practice until training camp starts in late July, reports the Tennessean. It's the same knee he had arthroscopic surgery on last September, causing him to miss five games, the report said.

Greene's status as Tennessee's starter took another hit last week when the Titans drafted running back Bishop Sankey with the 54th overall pick.


Titans draft Chris Johnson replacement with Bishop Sankey


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 54 pick in the NFL Draft, the Titans selected running back Bishop Sankey from Washington. Sankey will help the Titans replace the departed Chris Johnson, who was released this offseason.

As a back who never missed a game for the Huskies, the 5-foot-10, 209-pounder has tremendous field vision, burst and quickness to go with understated strength and toughness.

He often ran in tight spaces and still picked up plenty of ground. He also has very good hands. Some teams might have shied away from Sankey because of his frame, others because of his workload as he had 595 carries and 58 catches over the last two seasons (25 games). But in those games he totaled 3,214 rush yards, 537 receiving yards and 35 total touchdowns.

The Titans will use Sankey in tandem with Shonn Greene, but he could become the starter right away depending on how the Titans use him as a rookie.


TItans GM: We're looking for a three-down back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) The Titans plan to add a running back in the draft to team with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster, and general manager Ruston Webster wants that pick to be an all-around back, reports ESPN.com. Tennessee released Chris Johnson on Friday.

"I think moving forward we're going to look for another back with just some all-around ability, with size and speed, some explosiveness and possibly one that could stay on the field all three downs," Webster said in a radio interview.


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.


Report: Titans plan running back by committee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt envisions a running back by committee this season, according to NFL columnist Dan Pompei. Assuming Chris Johnson is released, the committee presumably will feature Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster and possibly Jackie Battle or a rookie.

Shonn Greene staring at increased opportunities


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) With the Titans possibly set to release Chris Johnson, running back Shonn Greene could be in for a major increase in workload. Coach Ken Whisenhunt praised the 28-year-old Greene, who ran for more than 1,000 yards in 2011 and 2012 with the Jets.

"I like what I've seen out of him off the tape," Whisenhunt said, per NFL.com.

Greene got just 77 carries last season backing up Johnson. He missed five games due to knee problems.


Shonn Greene finishes season under 300 yards


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene flopped in Week 17 against the Texans, coming off his best performance of the season. Green rushed the ball just six times and managed to pick up only 10 yards, with a long carry of 4 yards, in a 16-10 win.

Greene missed five games this season due to a knee injury, but he likely would have seen his 1,000-yard season streak end either way. He finished with just 295 yards on 77 carries, with four touchdowns in 11 games. 


Shonne Greene looking for more carries


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene got his biggest workload of the season last week, and made it count. Should he expect something similar in Week 17 against the Texans?

Greene has been the second option in the running game all season long, but actually received more carries than Chris Johnson as the Titans pounded the ball away in a win over the Jaguars last week. The Jaguars have had the most carries by running backs against them this season, but the Texans aren't far behind; opposing backs are totaling 24.5 carries per game against Houston, the eighth-highest mark in the league.

Given the matchup against a team that struggles to score, the Titans could be relying on the running game a bunch yet again this Sunday. Greene is the second choice, but could have success against a team that allowed 17.8 Fantasy points per game to backs. Despite last week's breakout, Greene remains more of a low-end Fantasy option for Week 17. 


Shonn Greene complements Chris Johnson well


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Confined to just a change-of-pace role for most of the season, Titans backup running back Shonn Greene got a chance to carry the load on three separate drives Week 16 at Jacksonville, finishing with a season-high 91 yards on a season-high 19 carries. He also had one catch for no gain.

Because his carries were confined to three possessions, with only one coming in the Titans' other eight, Greene didn't short change Chris Johnson, who finished with 90 yards on 22 carries. He simply took advantage of the opportunities he was given with gains of 6, 9, 14 and a season-high 29 yards.

Of course, he wasn't without his faults, needing three carries to punch it in from inside the 5-yard line, but he did finally succeed for one of Titans' two touchdowns on the day.

Greene will look to continue to expand his role Week 17 against the Texans.


Blowout is Shonn Greene's best chance


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) After getting more work than usual in a blowout loss to the Broncos in Week 14, picking up 46 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries, Titans backup running back Shonn Greene came back down to earth in a surprising shootout against the Cardinals last week, picking up 4 yards on three carries.

So which version will show up Week 16 at Jacksonville? Greene also had a decent number of carries -- 10, to be exact -- Week 13 at Indianapolis, which wasn't a blowout one way or the other, but for much of this season, he has been a strict backup to Chris Johnson. In other words, his best chance of contributing in Fantasy is if he's needed to run out the clock in a blowout scenario.

The Jaguars have been susceptible to blowouts this season, but they haven't lost by multiple scores since Week 11 and actually beat the Titans in Week 10. Greene had nine carries for 22 yards in that game.

Even though the Jaguars rank 30th against the run, allowing 131.9 yards per game, you'd be taking a huge gamble by starting Greene in Fantasy.


Shonn Greene plays the vulture twice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene scored two touchdowns Week 14 against Denver.

Greene took advantage of being in the right place at the right time. The team used Greene at the goal line on their first drive, getting him a 3-yard score. He later scored on a 28-yard run. On the previous play, Chris Johnson caught a 23 yard pass and needed a breather. Greene finished the game with nine rushes for 46 yards. 

Greene will take on the Cardinals Week 15.


One back, two pass-catchers make plays Sunday for Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Titans backup running back Shonn Greene led a contingent of small contributors to the loss Sunday at Indianapolis. He rushed for 39 yards on 10 carries and added a 1-yard catch.

Wide receiver Justin Hunter was targeted five times, but caught just one for 9 yards. Tight end Delanie Walker managed one reception for 5 yards before leaving the game with an apparent concussion.


Shonn Greene can't cash in from the red zone


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene saw several red zone opportunities but failed to cash in during Sunday's win over the Raiders in Week 12.

Greene had four carries for 15 yards (3.8 yards per carry) in a 23-19 victory. He was also targeted once in the passing game but was held without a catch.

The Titans will play the Colts in Indianapolis in Week 13.

Shonn Greene does little in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Though Titans coach Mike Munchak has talked about increasing Shonn Greene's role in the offense, he barely saw the field in a 30-27 loss to the Colts in Week 11.

Green rushed the ball just three times for 10 yards, and was a nonentity in the passing game as well. He was not even targeted for a pass in the loss.

Green will try to get going in Week 12, when the Titans take on the Raiders. 


Shonn Greene a steady presence in run game


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Over the last two weeks, Titans running back Shonn Greene has been fairly consistent, getting nine carries in each game, and averaging 30 rushing yards. He scored a touchdown in Week 9 against the Rams, and caught three passes on Week 10. 

While Greene was out for the first six weeks of the season, he jumped right into the mix after the Week 8 bye. And while he remains a decent bench add as a handcuff to Chris Johnson, Greene probably isn't going to help too many Fantasy teams in shallower formats. 

Deeper league owners may want to consider Greene, just for his consistent usage the last two weeks. But he's best left on the wire in most formats. 


Shonn Greene shut out in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene failed to get going in Week 10 against the Jaguars, in a 29-27 loss.

Greene received a similar workload to his previous week's work, but was much less productive this time around.  After rushing for 38 yards and a touchdown in Week 9, Green totaled just 22 yards on nine carries this week, and was unable to find the end zone. He also had just 10 yards on three catches in the game.

The Titans want to get Greene involved more in the offense moving forward, but he has to prove himself worth first. He will try to do so in Week 11, when the Titans face the Colts Thursday. 


Shonn Greene could succeed again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene managed to make an impact for the first time in Week 9 against the Rams, and he has a chance to make it two games in a row in Week 10 as the Titans get set to face the Jaguars.

Greene scored for the first time last week, and the Jaguars present a great opportunity for him to find the end zone for the second time. Opposing running backs have totaled eight touchdowns over the last three games against the Jaguars, which bodes well for Greene, as he received goal-line reps against the Rams.

Green is likely to settle in right around 10 carries again this week, though the possibility exists for more work if the Titans get up big early. Still, given then matchup, even 10 carries could be enough to make Greene a solid option. Consider him a low-end starting Fantasy running back for Week 10. 


Shonn Greene scores in larger role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene saw a larger role Sunday against the Rams in a 28-21 win in Week 9, though it wasn't quite as big as coach Mike Munchak hinted at earlier in the week.

Greene was clearly the second option in the rushing game, behind Chris Johnson and his breakout performance. Greene ran the ball nine times for 38 yards, both of which represented season highs.

Greene also had a few firsts in the game, as he hauled in his first catch of the season, for 28 yards. He added a touchdown from 5 yards out, also his first of the season.

Greene should continue to be a regular member of the running back rotation moving forward. The Rams take on the Jaguars in Week 10. 


Shonn Greene could see expanded role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) Titans coach Mike Munchak told reporters early in the week he expects Shonn Greene to receive nearly 15 carries per game through the end of the season, assuming Greene has recovered from his knee injury. Coming off a bye, Week 9 against the Rams could provide the first opportunity for an increased workload for the backup.

Chris Johnson has struggled to get going recently, which would seem to provide a goo opportunity for Greene's role to increase. The Rams are also a pretty pliable defense against the run this season, allowing 108.5 rushing yards and 18.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.

Munchak talking about Greene's role increasing should be a good sign for his Fantasy value moving forward, but we haven't seen that happen yet. Until we do, Fantasy owners should probably leave Greene stashed. Consider him just a low-end, injury-replacement option for Week 9. 


Shonn Greene could earn significant increase in reps


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Mike Munchak envisions running back Shonn Greene receiving about 15 carries per game going forward if all goes according to plan, per NFL.com. The number is a bit surprising considering Greene has been no more than a backup to Chris Johnson.

Greene has been sidelined virtually the entire year with a knee injury and had just one carry in Week 7 before the Titans embarked on their bye.

Johnson, however, has struggled for the second straight season, particularly of late. He has just 110 yards on 46 attempts in his last four games for a meager 2.4 average.


Bye week helped Shonn Greene's knee


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Titans running back Shonn Greene got one carry Week 7 against the 49ers after returning from a knee injury that had sidelined him since the opener. Greene says the bye week helped his recovery and that he's likely to return to practicing regularly, reports the Tennessean.

The Titans visit the Rams in Week 9.
