Without LaDainian Tomlinson dressed for the game , it was imperative that Jets running back Shonn Greene stay effective and stay healthy. For now, the latter might keep him from accomplishing the former.
After making a four-yard reception late in the first quarter in which he was hit by two Broncos defenders, Greene was shaken up and eventually slowly walked off the field. After he was examined by trainers on the sideline, Greene was taken to the locker room. He is now questionable to return with a ribs injury.
Joe McKnight has taken his place in the Jets offensive backfield, and Bilal Powell also is available.
