Jackie Battle rushed one time for zero yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.
Battle couldn't crack a Titans running back depth chart that consisted of Bishop Sankey, Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington. He heads to free agency with five carries for nine yards and one touchdown on his 2014 resume. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:55:00 PM

Jackie Battle appears to have a sizable lead on Collin Mooney for the Titans' fullback job.

Mercifully, Battle shouldn't have to carry the rock this season as the Titans are deep at halfback with Bishop Sankey, Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster. He'll lead block and cover kicks.

The Nashville Tennessean expects Jackie Battle to serve as the Titans' fullback.

Battle is also competing with knee-troubled Shonn Greene for goal-line and short-yardage work behind rookie Bishop Sankey. At fullback, 30-year-old Battle is trying to knock off Collin Mooney. Battle's a near-lock to make the final roster because he can play both positions and consistently cover kicks.

Titans re-signed RB Jackie Battle to a one-year, $855,000 contract.

It's undoubtedly a one-year deal for the 30-year-old plodder. Battle appeared in all 16 games for the Titans in 2013, rushing for 142 yards and one touchdown on 36 carries (3.9 YPC) as the No. 3 running back. He'll compete for a roster spot this summer. Battle contributed six tackles on special teams last season.

Jackie Battle rushed for 16 yards on one carry and caught one pass for two yards in Week 17 against the Texans.

Battle served as Chris Johnson's No. 2 early in the season while Shonn Greene recovered from a knee scope but reverted back to No. 3 duties once Greene was healthy. Battle, 30, rushed 36 times for 142 yards and one touchdown this season, adding four catches for 36 yards. Battle will be a free agent in March and will likely struggle to find work.

Jackie Battle (neck) is practicing in full for Week 7, but is expected to be third on the depth chart against San Francisco.

With Shonn Greene (knee scope) finally ready to return, Battle will no longer back up Chris Johnson. If he touches the ball, it won't be more than 2-3 times.
Thu, Oct 17, 2013 07:48:00 PM

Speaking Monday, Titans coach Mike Munchak said Jackie Battle (neck) "should be OK" for Week 7.

Battle was active Sunday, but only on an emergency basis. He played just one snap despite being listed as "probable" on the injury report. The Titans are hopeful of getting Shonn Greene (knee) back for Week 7, so it's possible Battle will sit out ahead of Tennessee's Week 8 bye.

Jackie Battle was held without a touch in Tennessee's Week 6 loss to Seattle.

Battle was active, but if he played a snap, we didn't see it. He was listed as "probable" on the injury report with a neck issue after a full week of practice. With Shonn Greene (knee) nearing a return, Battle's fantasy moment in the sun has come and gone.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 08:10:00 PM

Titans RB Jackie Battle rushed six times for 38 yards and caught a 24-yard pass in Tennessee's Week 5 loss to Kansas City.

Battle broke off Tennessee's lone effective run of the game on a 37-yarder off left tackle. Otherwise, he was bottled up for five carries and one yard, repeatedly getting stuffed in short yardage. With Shonn Greene (knee scope) due back in Week 6 against Seattle, Battle will resume fantasy irrelevance.
Sun, Oct 6, 2013 05:38:00 PM

Jackie Battle rushed for 42 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Jets.

Battle played much of the second half ahead of Chris Johnson with the Titans up comfortably and Johnson struggling to 21 yards on 15 carries. After four games, Battle is on pace to run for 352 yards and four touchdowns on 116 carries. He'll likely lose short-yardage duties to Shonn Greene when he returns.
Sun, Sep 29, 2013 07:57:00 PM

Jackie Battle carried four times for 12 yards in the Titans' Week 3 win over San Diego.

Battle is filling in for Shonn Greene (knee scope) in the change-of-pace and "big back" role. He has no real fantasy value aside from random goal-line chances, which Battle hasn't gotten in back-to-back weeks.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 05:30:00 PM

Jackie Battle rushed for 13 yards on six attempts in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Texans.

With Shonn Greene out with a knee injury, Battle again acted as the short-yardage back behind Chris Johnson. He's not on the fantasy radar whatsoever.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 07:33:00 PM

Jackie Battle rushed eight times for 21 yards with a touchdown in the Titans' Week 1 win over the Steelers.

Shonn Greene left early with a knee injury. At that point, Battle took over all short-yardage work. That meant he got the call on a 3-yard goal-line plunge late in the second quarter and pushed the pile on some key conversions in the second half. Battle, whose running style has been likened to that of an elephant, is not on the fantasy radar even if Greene's injury proves serious.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 04:52:00 PM

Titans signed RB Jackie Battle and TE DeMarco Cosby.

They also waived QB Nate Enderle and RB Alvester Alexander. We've seen Battle's act many times before, and he's a straight-line, largely plodding power back with extremely limited running ability. He's Shonn Greene insurance.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 05:56:00 PM

Jackie Battle rushed 19 times for just 37 yards in the Chargers' Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Pressed into a feature back role once again, the plodding Battle predictably got nothing going. Running with form similar to that of an elephant, he finishes the season averaging 3.27 YPC on 95 rushes. The Chargers desperately need to upgrade the backup position behind Ryan Mathews. Battle is now an unrestricted free agent anyway.
