Shonn Greene injury: Titans RB has knee scope, could miss Week 3

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans could be without Shonn Greene for a second straight week due to a knee injury.

Tennessee running back Shonn Greene had arthroscopic knee surgery on Monday and could miss Tennessee's Week 3 game against San Diego, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Greene played a backup role for the Titans in the season opener against Pittsburgh and suffered a knee injury. He did not practice last week and missed the game against Houston. According to Wyatt, Greene had the procedure done on Monday and "could be sidelined for a week or so."

The 28-year-old Greene is in his first season with the Titans after spending four seasons with the New York Jets. The Titans signed him in free agency with plans for him to take some of the workload off of Chris Johnson's shoulders. Greene carried four times for 18 yards before leaving the game.

If Greene is unable to play this week, it could mean a larger workload for Johnson. It could also mean a few additional carries for Jackie Battle, who filled in for Greene as Johnson's backup last week, carrying six times for 13 yards.
