Shonn Greene rushed for six yards on three carries in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Greene picked up a couple first downs in short-yardage totes on the Titans' first-quarter touchdown drive, but that was it. He's waiver-wire fodder 12-14 team leagues.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt insisted Shonn Greene was not benched following his first-quarter fumble Sunday.

Greene fumbled at the goal-line on the Titans' 15-play, 79-yard opening drive, setting the tone for a 21-7 loss. After that, Greene did not get any more carries and saw just one more snap. It certainly looked like a benching, giving the "Free Sankey" movement some hope heading into a tasty Week 11 matchup at home against the Steelers.

Shonn Greene "gained" five yards on three carries in the Titans' Week 10 loss to Baltimore.

Greene fumbled at the goal line on his third carry and wasn't heard from again. Hopefully for the sake of the Titans and Bishop Sankey, Greene will go into the doghouse for good. He brings nothing to the offense.
Nov 9 - 4:05 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated Shonn Greene will likely continue to play a minimal role in the Titans' offense.

Tennessee is playing three receivers as its base offense, utilizing "11" on 70 percent of its snaps this season. Bishop Sankey is the Titans' primary back in "11" personnel. Greene only gets carries in two-tight end sets. Greene played just two snaps in Week 8, prior to the Titans' Week 9 bye.

Shonn Greene managed one yard on one carry in the Titans' Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Greene got the start, handled the first touch, and spent the majority of the rest of the game on the bench. He's terrible, and the Titans know it. Greene should be nowhere near fantasy rosters.
Oct 26 - 5:13 PM

Shonn Greene is active for Week 8 against the Texans.

Greene was arrested Friday night for parking in a handicap spot. Funny, we know. It's a non-issue. He'll back up Bishop Sankey, but could steal some goal-line looks. Inactive for the Titans are RB Antonio Andrews, QB Charlie Whitehurst, WR Kris Durham, DL DaQuan Jones, OL Will Svitek, CB Coty Sensabuagh, and TE Taylor Thompson.

Updating a previous report, ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky reports RB Shonn Greene's roster spot is not in jeopardy following his Friday night arrest.

Greene was arrested for failing to halt for a traffic officer. Greene was being issued a ticket for parking in a handicap spot. Greene (hamstring) is listed as probable for the Titans' Week 8 contest with the Texans.

Titans RB Shonn Greene was arrested for fleeing the scene of a parking incident on Friday night.

Greene was parked in a handicap parking space in Franklin, Tennessee on Friday evening. When a parking enforcement officer tried to issue Greene a ticket, he got into his car, maneuvered around the officer's vehicle and left the scene. Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. Green turned himself in Friday night after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest, and was released after posting a $2,000 bond. His status for Sunday's game against the Texans is unknown.

Shonn Greene (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 8 against the Texans.

We're tentatively expecting Bishop Sankey to remain Tennessee's lead runner, but Greene could snipe a few carries, particularly in goal-to-go situations. Greene is more of a threat to Sankey than standalone fantasy option.
Oct 24 - 1:51 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Greene appears ready to return for Week 8, but he'll do so as Bishop Sankey's caddie. He's not a recommended RB4 option.
Oct 23 - 5:40 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Greene said he felt like he was able to do "just about everything" at practice. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Bishop Sankey is going to remain the Titans' lead back even when Greene returns.
Oct 22 - 2:51 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Greene did not practice this week. Bishop Sankey will continue to be the lead back, while Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington will mix in as well.
Oct 18 - 2:02 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice again Friday.

Despite officially being listed as "doubtful" for the second straight week, he will not play against the Redskins. Bishop Sankey will continue to handle lead back work with Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington mixing in.
Oct 17 - 1:12 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Shonn Greene (hamstring) will miss Week 7.

This became self-evident after Greene missed his second-consecutive practice on Thursday. Bishop Sankey will get the start against the Redskins, and serve as a solid FLEX option.
