This offeason, running back Shonn Greene signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Tennessee Titans to serve as a complement to starter Chris Johnson.
Through eight games, things haven't gone exactly as planned. Greene missed five games with a knee injury and only has five carries for 20 yards on the campaign.
He'll finally get going Sunday against St. Louis, where he'll rush for over 100 yards and score at least one touchdown.
The Rams defense isn't great against the run, allowing over four yards per carry, and Greene got an extra week of rest as the Titans were just on their bye. He's healthy enough that coach Mike Munchak said the aim is to get him 15 carries this week, per Kevin Patra of NFL.com.
Greene will punish the Rams defense on the ground, allowing Titans quarterback Jake Locker opportunities to throw the ball down the field.
The end result will be a Titans victory that improves their record to 4-4.
