Titans plan to use a committee at running back
Monday, April 7, 2014, 11:34am
It will be running back by committee for the Titans. Shonn Greene returns, along with Jackie Battle and Leon Washington. Dexter McCluster was signed the first day of free agency, and though he was primarily a receiver/returner for much of his time with the Chiefs, the Titans plan to line him up at running back. More help is needed, however. Although there aren't any great free-agent options left, the Titans are likely to pick a running back in the May 8-10 draft. Fresh legs are desired.

Titans head coach Mike Munchak said:
Shonn Greene, starting today, [will] be a lot more active. Now it's just a matter of seeing how [he handles] more activity. I think the rest part and the light stuff is over, and now he can get more into real football stuff, and now it's just a matter of how quickly he progresses without pain. We'll see how Shonn is this week running and how he handles and how his knee responds to more football-like activity."
Greene has been out since Week 2, and with Jackie Battle injured last week, the timing is good for the Titans and their struggling running game. The struggles could continue this week, though, in a late afternoon game against the 49ers. Greene is expected to go back to being the goal line back when he returns. Battle would be the team's RB3 behind Chris Johnson.
