Updates from Monday, Aug. 18

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN updated Shonn Greene's status from Monday's practice:

Original Text

The Tennessee Titans lost a fumble in the first half of their preseason game against the New Orleans Saints Friday, but that was the least of their worries from that play. Running back Shonn Greene suffered an injury, and the team’s official Twitter page provided an update:

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean added more context to the injury, and it wasn’t what Titans fans were hoping to hear:

John Glennon of The Tennessean provides official word on his status:

This is certainly unwelcome news for a Tennessee squad that finished 14th in the league in rushing yards per game last year. Greene only tallied 295 yards and four touchdowns on the ground in 11 games last year for the Titans and is certainly looking for improvement in 2014.

He flashed his potential in 2011 and 2012 as a member of the New York Jets when he ran for more than 1,000 yards in two consecutive seasons. The only way we will see that version of Greene is if he is healthy and on the field.
