Shonn Greene rushed seven times for 28 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Bishop Sankey again led the Titans' committee. Greene gets to close the book on an(other) uninspiring campaign against the Colts next week. Dec 18 - 11:38 PM

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Shonn Greene handled 16 carries in Sunday's loss to the Jets because he showed the "hot hand."

Greene averaged 3.1 YPC and 2.8 YPC if you leave out his longest run, a barn-burning eight-yard gain. The Titans are 2-12, riding imaginary hot hands.
Dec 15 - 4:44 PM

Shonn Greene rushed 16 times for 50 yards Week 15 against the Jets.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt took a long walk down Narrative Street in this one. After not being active for Week 14, Greene was given 17 touches against his former team. He had 16 touches combined in the Titans' last six games. Greene was predictably ineffective with the carries, but his workload against the Jets puts him back on the touchdown prayer radar.
Dec 14 - 7:58 PM

Shonn Green is inactive for Week 14 against the Giants.

He's a healthy scratch. It's been a long time coming for Greene, whose days are numbered in Tennessee. Antonio Andrews is active and will serve as the big back behind Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. Also inactive for the Titans are Kendall Wright, LT Taylor Lewan, RT Michael Oher, DB Jemea Thomas, DL Da'Quan Jones, and OLB Kamerion Wimbley. The Titans are down to their Nos. 4 and 5 tackles.
Dec 7 - 11:42 AM

Shonn Greene is owed $3.35 million in 2015, the final year of his current contract.

The Titans gave Greene a three-year, $10M contract in March of 2013. It was universally ripped at the time, so saying it's a terrible contract is not 20-20 hindsight. Greene, averaging 3.75 YPC in 21 games as a Titan, obviously won't be back next year to finish out the deal. Coach Ken Whisenhunt might as well see what Antonio Andrews has a complement to Bishop Sankey.
Dec 1 - 12:08 PM

Shonn Greene managed zero yards on two carries in the Titans' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Green is a non-factor both in real life and fantasy football.
Nov 30 - 4:32 PM

Shonn Greene rushed six times for 15 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 loss at Philadelphia.

No matter how ineffective Greene is, the Titans insist on using him in all short-yardage and goal-line situations. He got two chances inside the 2-yard line in this one, converting the second one by spinning in. Greene is a drain on Bishop Sankey but is not a real fantasy option. He has now has two touchdowns on the season.
Nov 23 - 5:22 PM

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.
Nov 17 - 11:58 PM

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.
Nov 10 - 8:32 AM

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.
Nov 5 - 8:20 PM

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.
Oct 26 - 11:39 AM

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.
Oct 25 - 1:53 PM

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.
