    Titans RB Bishop Sankey will be part of running back-by-committee

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey will be part of a running back-by-committee situation moving forward in Tennessee, the Tennessean reports.In case it wasn't apparent from the Titans having a different leading rusher in each of their first three games, head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed the team is perfectly content feeding the hot hand rather than consistently featuring a single running back. As a result, Sankey, Dexter McCluster, Antonio Andrews and Terrance West should all continue to see touches moving forward, health permitting.

    Titans RB Bishop Sankey records 41 total yards of offense

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey rushed for just 10 yards on five carries, but added 31 yards on two receptions Sunday against the Colts. Sankey accounted for just five of the team's 27 carries, and took a backseat to Antonio Andrews. The second-year back had been precariously perched atop a muddled depth chart in Tennessee's backfield, but now his role compared to those of Andrews and Dexter McCluster is even less clear.

    Titans RB Bishop Sankey gets 42 rush yards on 12 carries

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey managed just 42 yards on 12 carries, and caught neither of his two targets in Sunday's loss to the Browns. Sankey ceded a lot of playing time to Dexter McCluster (14 touches), and generally looked inept a week after running wild against the Buccaneers. McCluster will always take up some touches in a change-of-pace role, but Sankey is still the lead-dog in the Titans backfield, even with this dismal effort.

    Titans RB Bishop Sankey sinks Tampa Bay with two touchdowns

    Bishop Sankey performed well Sunday for the Titans in his first game of the season as a featured back. Only the lopsided nature of the contest prevented him from putting up bigger numbers. Sankey rushed for 74 yards on just 12 carries in the rout of Tampa Bay. He scored on a 12-yard pass from Marcus Mariota in the first quarter and 1-yard run in the third. He caught two passes for 12 yards. He will try to maintain his momentum when Tennessee plays at Cleveland next Sunday.

    Titans' Sankey on '14 struggles: 'I've grown a lot from my rookie year'

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey did not have an ideal rookie season, as the team struggled to a 2-14 record in 2014. He totaled 569 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while averaging 3.7 yards per carry. Despite the pedestrian numbers and rookie struggles, Sankey is OK with how his rookie season played out. "I'm happy with how it went, regardless, in spite of our record and everything," Sankey said, per The Tennessean. "It was kind of a whirlwind at first, just getting adjusted. Coming here last year, there were so many new experiences. You're in a new city, you have a new playbook, a new team. It's definitely an adjustment, but it was a growing process for me as a person and as a player. "This year I feel good, I feel confident and I feel like I've grown a lot from my rookie year." Sankey had some decent moments during the preseason and finished with a team-best 94 rushing yards. However, he averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, so he still has some room for improvement. "I feel really good. I'm just excited to get the season going, going into my second year," Sankey said. "I definitely want to do well this year and I know the rest of the guys do, too. We feel like we're a better team than what we showed last year, and we just want to prove that to the fans and everything this year, and to ourselves, too."

    Titans RB Bishop Sankey fails to do much Week 16

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey failed to do much Week 16 against the Jaguars. Sankey led all Titans runners, carrying the ball 14 times for 44 yards. He was held to just 3.1 yards per carry. Sankey had a hard time breaking anything loose, with his longest carry going for just 8 yards. He wasn't all that involved in the passing game either, coming up with one reception for 9 yards. Sankey will hope for more Week 17 against the Colts.

    Ken Whisenhunt says Shonn Greene (3.1 ypc) had 'hot hand'

    Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said he gave running back Shonn Greene a season-high 16 carries in Sunday's loss to the Jets because he was "going with the hot hand," reports The Tennessean. It was a strange statement considering Greene averaged 3.1 yards per carry and had a long gainer of 8 yards. Rookie Bishop Sankey, who had received double-digit touches in the previous eight games, got four touches against the Jets. He carried three times for 8 yards and caught an 18-yard pass. The Titans visit Jacksonville on Thursday.

    Shonn Greene just bad news for Bishop Sankey

    One week after he was inactive, much to his dismay, running back Shonn Greene became the Titans' leading rusher Week 15 against the Jets, gaining 50 yards on a season-high 16 carries. He hadn't even gotten 10 carries in a game since Week 5, averaging 3.2 in five games since. Of course, it doesn't really change anything in Fantasy. Greene is averaging just 3.6 yards per carry on the season and is in no way a receiving threat. Plus, he's not going to replace rookie Bishop Sankey outright. All his resurgence means is that you can quit holding out hope for Sankey to blow up one of these weeks, which is probably for the best. I mean, how many games have you lost because of him? Enough that you're probably not in your league's championship game, so who am I even talking to?
