Report: Shonn Greene has knee surgery, expected back for camp

One of the key cogs in the Titans’ backfield is reportedly on the mend.

Tailback Shonn Greene “recently” had right knee surgery, Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean reported on Sunday. It is the second surgical procedure on Greene’s knee since the start of the 2013 regular season.

According to Wyatt, it is anticipated Greene will return for the start of training camp, but he will miss the club’s remaining offseason workouts for Tennessee, which released starting tailback Chris Johnson earlier in the offseason.

Greene, 28, rushed for 295 yards and four touchdowns on 77 carries in 2013. The 5-11, 233-pound Greene is the Titans’ top veteran option at tailback, with rookie Bishop Sankey also likely to have a regular role in the backfield. A second-round pick from Washington, Sankey (5-9, 209) was the only back the Titans selected in the draft.

    It’s starting to sound like the Titans way overpaid Greene.

    That’s too bad. I hope he’s fully ready to go come the start of the season because he can be really good.

    Greene was a hawkeye and I wish him the best. Maybe he can help Sankey this season and retire and maybe coach. He is a good guy.

    This was clearly a bright idea to go with Green who couldn’t carry the load in NY as a lead back. Good job, Titan front office.

    Hmmm…..Chris Johnson never had knee surgery.

    I think this should be an interesting camp battle. Could be a true 50 50 split in the season. Greene is better than people give him credit for.

    It’s obvious you’re not a team player when you wait until voluntaries to get your knee scoped.
