Shonn Greene RB TEN 2 Days

Greene had just five carries for 40 yards in Sunday's 26-10 loss to Dallas.

Greene got very little opportunities because the Cowboys controlled the ball for over 41 minutes. Rookie Bishop Sankey was a non-factor, rushing for just three yards on two carries. It looks like Greene will remain the starter, with Dexter McCluster mixed in as the change-of-pace back.

Greene had 15 carries for 71 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

Greene started the game and finished with more than double the carries as rookie Bishop Sankey, who many expect to take over the top spot on the depth chart at some point this season. Interestingly enough, Dexter McCluster had nine carries, which was also more than Sankey. While it's not an equal committee, Greene isn't expected to get a large majority of the touches out of the backfield, which limits his fantasy upside.

Greene remains atop the Titans' running back depth chart in advance of Week 1, the team's official site reports.

Rookie Bishop Sankey is listed as the team's No. 2 back, with Dexter McCluster (in the No. 3 slot) set to work in a change-of-pace role. Though Greene maintains his standing as the Titans' starter for now, per the team's posted depth chart, Sankey figures to see his share of carries out of the gate as well, and it's not hard to imagine his role expanding (at Greene's expense) as the season progresses.

Greene (knee) gained 15 yards on six carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Greene did nothing against a weak Atlanta defense, but the bigger story was Bishop Sankey's complete lack of involvement with the first-team offense. Dexter McCluster worked ahead of Sankey, and Leon Washington got some snaps as a third-down back. Of course, neither McCluster nor Washington is a threat to handle anything close to an every-down role, meaning Sankey still looms as the primary threat to Greene's value. Greene's lack of quickness and receiving ability puts a pretty low cap on his ceiling, while Sankey's presence means the veteran also has a low floor. According to The Tennessean, the Titans are happy with Sankey's running and receiving, but worried about the rookie's propensity for fumbling in practice. Greene will very likely enter Week 1 as the starter, but his job security is poor.

Greene (knee) practiced Monday, The Tennessean reports.

Greene left Friday's preseason contest after slightly injuring his right knee, which he underwent surgery on this offseason. However, judging by Greene's comments since the game, coupled with his participation in Monday's practice, the veteran running back appears to be fine health-wise. Nonetheless, with rookie Bishop Sankey around and Dexter McCluster also expected to receive touches out of the backfield, Greene's role should remain limited to mostly short-yard work.

Greene said after Friday's preseason game that he hyperextended his right knee, adding that he expects to be okay, the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt reports.

Though he expects to be okay, Greene did injure the same knee that he had surgery on during the offseason. His reaction to the injury indicated that it wasn't all that serious, but the context is cause for added concern. The plodding veteran is trying to hold off rookie Bishop Sankey, who already figures to handle a good portion of the work on passing downs.

Greene (leg), who underwent surgery on his right knee during the offseason, was applying ice to that knee after being removed from Friday's preseason game, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Greene walked off the field under his own power, and then stuck around on the sidelines, indicating that the injury isn't too serious. Still, he figures to face heat from Bishop Sankey, and it won't help the veteran's cause if his knee is a lingering issue.

Greene left Friday's preseason game against the Saints with an apparent right leg injury, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Greene fumbled after a shot from safety Kenny Vaccaro and stayed down for a bit initially, but he eventually walked off the field under his own power. The 28-year-old had his right knee operated on in the offseason. Prior to exiting, Greene carried the ball nine times for 51 yards (5.7 YPC).

Greene (knee) had four carries for 20 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's preseason opener against Green Bay on Saturday.

Greene, who's still working his way back to full strength following offseason knee surgery, saved his best attempt for last, finding a seam and scampering 13 yards untouched for the score. Despite the encouraging performance, it's hard to get too excited about Greene's fantasy prospects this season due to the presence of talented rookie Bishop Sankey, as well as the arrival of Dexter McCluster.

Greene is listed as the No. 1 running back on the Titans' initial depth chart in advance of Saturday's preseason opener against Green Bay, The Tennessean reports.

Greene will continue to face stiff competition from rookie Bishop Sankey during preseason, while Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington are also competing for touches. Assuming he can stay healthy, Greene will likely get the first crack at the lead-back role once the regular season begins, though Sankey has far more upside.
