Tennessee's running back battle didn't skip a beat on Monday.
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt told reporters that Shonn Greene is fine after suffering a hyperextended knee in Friday night's preseason loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Greene practiced Monday, taking snaps in a backfield that also includes rookie Bishop Sankey. We expect the duo to share carries this season, but Greene is a candidate to see his role shrivel up in favor of Tennessee's first-round pick.
Sankey lost a fumble against the Saints and reportedly has struggled with ball-handing in practice, but we think he eventually emerges as the Titans RB1. For now, it looks like a committee approach at least to start the season but Sankey has long term value and may end up falling a little in drafts because of this news.
