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.

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.
Oct 9 - 2:55 PM

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

Titans fans and Bishop Sankey owners can only wish Greene would miss Week 6 against the Jaguars so the coaching staff quits wasting everybody's time by continuing to feed Greene carries. Greene is off the fantasy radar.
Oct 8 - 3:05 PM

Shonn Greene managed 36 yards on 11 carries in the Titans' Week 5 loss to the Browns.

The Titans continue to rack up losses while utilizing Greene as their lead back. A 29-year-old career plodder, Greene now has 33 carries on the season compared to Bishop Sankey's 24. The 1-4 Titans are wasting their time with Greene.
Oct 5 - 6:44 PM

Shonn Greene rushed for 10 yards on three carries in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Greene and Dexter McCluster were the clear Nos. 1 and 2 backs in the first half, but the Titans fell behind quickly and were blown out by the Colts. Bishop Sankey then ran circles around both veterans with an impressive third-quarter series that ended in a two-yard touchdown. Greene has been pretty ordinary the past two weeks, and should lose carries to Sankey if the coaching staff was smart. Through four games, Greene is on pace for 616 yards and four touchdowns on 132 carries. He's barely on the FLEX radar. The Titans host the Browns in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 4:33 PM

Shonn Greene rushed for 33 yards and one touchdown on ten carries in the Titans' Week 3 loss to the Bengals.

Greene got the start again for the Titans. He had a long gain of 20 yards, but managed just 13 yards and a one-yard score on his other nine carries. Greene continues to lead this committee, but Bishop Sankey out-touched him 11-10 this week, albeit with garbage-time reps. Greene will likely hover around 30-40 yards weekly, and is extremely touchdown-dependent. He's a RB3/4, but gets a favorable matchup with the Colts on the schedule in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:11 PM

Shonn Greene rushed five times for 40 yards in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

For the second straight week, Greene wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene again "led" the Titans' committee — which was only three members this week, shedding Leon Washington — but had nothing to show for it in a game where the Titans played from behind. Today made it clearer than ever that Greene's 2014 fantasy fortunes will live or die with his goal-line opportunities. He has a rough Week 3 matchup in the Bengals.
Sep 14 - 5:22 PM

Shonn Greene rushed a team-high 15 times for 71 yards in Tennessee's Week 1 win over Kansas City.

He didn't see a target in the passing game. Although Greene ran effectively between the tackles, he "lost" six touches to Bishop Sankey, ten to Dexter McCluster, and four to Leon Washington. Whether Greene pays off as a fantasy start going forward will depend almost entirely on goal-line scores. The Titans do play a terrible Dallas defense in Week 2, making Greene a flex option.
Sep 7 - 5:38 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Shonn Greene is now at the weight the team wants him at.

The Titans asked Greene to lose 5-10 pounds, and the power back has done so while finally sustaining health in his troublesome right knee. "I think you're seeing the results in how he's running the football," Whisenhunt said. Through three preseason games, Greene has 19 carries for 81 yards and one touchdown while handling almost all of the early-down work with the first stringers. He'll enter Week 1 as a low-upside RB3/4, but Bishop Sankey will be pushing for a piece of the first-team pie eventually.
