Shonn Greene RB TEN 2 weeks ago

The Tennessean suggests that Greene's roster spot could be in jeopardy following the team's selection of David Cobb in the recent NFL draft.

It's a notion echoed by, though the veteran running back -- who has been away from the team's voluntary organized team activities to attend to a family matter -- remains slated to participate in the Titans' mandatory minicamp, which runs from June 16-18. With Bishop Sankey still atop the team's RB depth chart, Greene could well be squeezed out by Cobb, a fellow big back, assuming the rookie is able to stay healthy in advance of the 2015 season.

Greene had 11 carries for 94 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Greene led the team in carries and his 52-yard run that accounted for a bulk of his rushing yards would have led the team on its own. Greene still has one year left on the three-year contract he signed in March 2013, though with Bishop Sankey expected to take on a bigger role in 2015, Greene's fantasy prospects for next season are rather limited.

Greene carried seven times for 28 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Jaguars.

One week after Greene handled most of the work, Bishop Sankey took 14 carries for 44 yards, while Leon Washington posted a 7-62-1 receiving line. While it's possible that Greene could see more touches in Week 17 against the Colts, there's little upside to be had in this committee, and Sankey appears to be the better bit for the season finale.

Greene had 16 carries for 50 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He also caught one pass for 13 yards.

Greene was inactive last week, but saw lots of work Sunday against his former team, while rookie Bishop Sankey was not used much, rushing for just eight yards on three carries. It remains to be seen how much work Greene will get Thursday at Jacksonville, although the matchup is favorable.

Greene is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

He'll take a seat this week after recording just two carries for zero yards in Week 13, with the Titans' Week 14 rushing attack slated to be headed by Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster, with Antonio Andrews also in the mix.

Greene had six carries for 15 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles.

Bishop Sankey continues to lead the backfield, though his 10 carries for 37 yards were hardly impressive. In addition, Sankey lost a fumble, and Greene scored on a two-yard run in the second quarter, showing that he's very much in a vulture-role near the goal-line. Greene's fantasy upside is therefore very dependent on scoring touchdowns, something that isn't likely to happen unless the Titans get in close. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Texans defense that has allowed only five rushing touchdowns this season.

Greene had three carries for six yards in Monday's 27-24 loss to the Steelers.

Greene converted a 2nd-and-1 and a 3rd-and-1, but it was Bishop Sankey who once again dominated the workload. While he'll likely continue to get some carries in short-yardage situations, Greene has just eight touches over the last three games, and he has yet to catch a pass this season.

Greene had three carries for five yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 21-7 loss at Baltimore.

Greene potentially could have had a short touchdown, but he fumbled in the end zone in the first quarter, and did not touch the ball again. Meanwhile, rookie Bishop Sankey was effective, albeit unspectacular, rushing for 58 yards on 17 carries. At this point it's hard to imagine Greene seeing a lot of work, especially considering the aforementioned fumble, but if you need him, he'll take on Pittsburgh at home in Week 11.

Greene (hamstring) had one carry for one yard Sunday against the Texans.

Greene missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury and looks to have lost his starting job to rookie Bishop Sankey, who had nine carries for 35 rushing yards and four catches for 25 receiving yards Sunday. The Titans fell behind 13-3 at halftime and 27-3 with less than six minutes left in the third quarter, giving little hope that the running game could get an opportunity to produce. Following a Week 9 bye, Greene looks like he'll assume the backup job behind Sankey in Week 10 at Baltimore.

Greene (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Greene was arrested Friday night for fleeing the scene of a parking violation, but it had no standing on his status for Sunday's game. He has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury, but with Bishop Sankey leading the way during that time, it's possible Greene's time as the clear starter is over.
