Titans running back Shonn Greene was arrested Friday night according to reports from Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

In the report Wyatt says that Greene faces a handful of charges, chief among them is a "resisting stop" charge.

For a team that is supposedly building around high character players, it is hard to see Whiz rewarding Greene and letting him play on Sunday against the Texans. This would be the third game in a row that the Titans would start rookie running back Bishop Sankey. The rookie has 66 attempts for 267 yards (4.0 YPC), and there is no reason the Titans should have gone back to Greene anyway.

It would also meant that the Titans would be starting four (Sankey, Lewan, Mettenberger, Williamson) of their 2014 rookies.

For a player with chronic injuries, this could be the end of his time in Tennessee (or at least could lead to the end of his time in Tennessee by the end of the season).
