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.
Oct 16 - 7:45 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) remained out of Titans practice Thursday.

Greene is going to miss Week 7, giving rookie Bishop Sankey another week to work on locking down No. 1 duties.
Oct 16 - 2:35 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Greene missed Week 6 against the Jaguars, leaving Bishop Sankey atop the depth chart. Expect it to stay that way even when Greene returns to the field.
Oct 15 - 2:29 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) is not expected to play Week 6 against the Jaguars.

He's listed as doubtful on the injury report, so it comes as no surprise. Look for Bishop Sankey to take over as the Titans' lead back in a dream matchup. He's an RB2 option. We wouldn't be surprised to see Sankey take the job and run with it, leaving plodding Greene as a mere change of pace when he returns.
Oct 12 - 9:49 AM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) missed practice again on Friday and is listed as doubtful for Week 6.

Limited Wednesday, Greene was downgraded to "DNP" on both Thursday and Friday. He's not going to play Sunday against Jacksonville. Despite Bishop Sankey's disappointing Week 5 usage, he will presumably take over as the Titans' lead back in a favorable matchup with Greene on the shelf. Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington would mix in as change-of-pace/passing-down backs.
Oct 10 - 1:13 PM

Shonn Greene (hamstring) was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday, and is "uncertain" for Week 6.

It's sounding like Greene will be unavailable against the Jaguars, leaving rookie Bishop Sankey as the Titans' lead back. That's not for certain, however. The Titans adore their plodding "lead" back, and could give him the green light for Week 6 if he looks good on Friday. Sankey owners need to sit tight, but remain cautiously optimistic.
