The Tennessee Titans brought in Shonn Greene to be the second half of a 1-2 punch with Chris Johnson. The Titans haven’t gotten to really see that materialize on the field yet because of a knee injury to Shonn Greene, who according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is doubtful for today’s game.

Greene had missed practice most of this week as well.

The other side of this coin as Rapoport pointed out is the increased workload for Johnson. He carried the ball 25 times for 70 yards last week with a 2.8 yard per carry average. If he can get more yardage per carry he could really have a big day. Greene had only 4 carries last week for 18 yards.

They play the Houston Texans this week who gave up 62 yards on the ground to the San Diego Chargers, 80 if you count Philip Rivers 18 yard run.
