Shonn Greene injury update: will not play vs. Chargers

Frederick Breedon

Titans running back Shonn Greene will not play in the team's Week 3 game against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans running back Shonn Greene (knee) is expected to be out two more weeks, according to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky. So far this season, Greene has a total of four carries for 18 yards and a touchdown.

Greene signed a 3-year $10 million deal with the Titans in the off-season and when he returns, his primary role will be to handle goal-line carries behind Chris Johnson.

Fantasy impact: While Greene is out with the injury, Jackie Battle will move up a spot on the team's depth chart and handle the goal-line carries. In comparison to Greene, Battle has 34 yards rushing and a touchdown on 14 carries through the first two weeks of the season. Neither one of these backs has very much fantasy value sitting behind Johnson on the depth chart barring injury. If you were playing Greene in your lineup for any reason, guys like the Atlanta Falcons Jacquizz Rodgers or the James Starks Green Bay Packers may be available for a spot start in your league.
