NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans running back Shonn Greene, who hyperextended his knee Friday night in New Orleans, practice on Monday and is fine, coach Ken Whisenhunt said.
“Shonn is fine,” Whisenhunt said. “He practiced."
Greene ran well against the Saints before leaving the game, and the Titans have been encouraged by his recent work. Through two games he’s carried 13 times for 66 yards and a team best 5.1 yards per carry.
Running back coach Sylvester Croom said Greene’s work in a practice at LP Field on Aug. 2 was the best the team had seen from him since last year’s opener in Pittsburgh, where he suffered a knee injury.
A second surgery on that knee cost Greene the offseason.
In other injury developments: No. 2 quarterback Charlie Whitehurst had the day off with a finger injury that could require a bit more rest. Offensive coordinator Jason Michael threw some with Jake Locker and Zach Mettenberger in the individual period. “The reviews of today’s performance (by Michael) were not stellar,” Whisenhunt cracked.
Offensive lineman Taylor Lewan was out with a sore ankle.
Center Brian Schwenke was also held out.
