Shonn Greene saw a hole and went for it. Unfortunately, it wasn't on the football field. Instead, it was him avoiding police, and trying to get away from a ticket, because he was in violation of parking in a handicap parking area.Greene surrendered police once learning he had a warrant out for his arrest.
Sgt. Charles Warner stated on the arrest charged with driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, failure to stop/halt/frisk and illegal parking, Warner said. All the charges are misdemeanors, he said.
"This whole thing could have been avoided if Greene would have simply left that handicapped parking space available for whom it was intended," Warner said. "Even after getting caught illegally parking there, all he had to do was talk to the parking enforcement officer about the $51 citation she was writing him. Instead, he turned a parking ticket into all of this."
Greene was released on a $2,000 dollar bond. When the police officer asked to see his handicap placard, Green sped away, nearly striking the officer. When the officer had caught up to his vehicle, due to traffic, Greene sped away again.
Pyro's take: This may have been the biggest run for him all season, perhaps his career. Now if he can translate his street cred for football validity, he should do all-right.
The Titans have stated they are not going to release him, shocking since he just signed a contract for three-years $10 million, last season.
Just like most players on the Titans offense, he holds little value.
Trent Richardson, is officially listed as questionable, and Wayne is ruled out. according to Chuck Pagano. Stephen Holder, reporter for the Colts has stated that "Reggie Wayne is officially out, acc to Chuck Pagano. Richardson, Jack Doyle are questionable."
Pyro's take: I trust that Richardson will be in action on Sunday, and if he is being used in your lineup on a weekly basis, you should continue to do so. Look for Dan Herron to get some action if Richardson cannot go, and with Ahmad Bradshaw shouldering most of the load.
Paul Dehner beat-writer for the Cincinnati Bengals has stated via his twitter that "Lewis commented on Tyler Eifert. Originally aimed return to practice for next week but doesn't know now. My best guess return: @Saints."
Pyro's take: Eifert is worth rostering for forward-thinking fantasy owners in need of tight end help. He was a big part of OC Hue Jackson's game plan in Week 1, before dislocating the elbow, racking up three early catches for 37 yards.
Jermaine Gresham has done nothing to show that he could take the role away from Eifert, and once back in the lineup should put up some nice numbers.
Crockett Gillmore will be getting the start over Owen Daniels this week at tight end. According to Aaron Wilson via his twitter "Rookie tight end Crockett Gillmore to start in place of veteran Owen Daniels. John Harbaugh on Gillmore: 'He's ready to go.'"
Pyro's take: Crockett Gillmore might be an interesting prospect as the tight end is used primarily in the Ravens system. Slap him on your radar, as tight ends are hard to come by.
