starting tailback Shonn Greene injured his ribs in the first
quarter at Denver on Thursday night.
The Jets said his return was questionable.

catching a 4-yard screen pass from Mark Sanchez. Greene walked off
on his own after staying down for a minute and was replaced by Joe
The Jets already were without running back LaDainian Tomlinson,
who sprained his left knee on Sunday against New England and was
deactivated against the Broncos. With Tomlinson out, rookie Bilal
Powell was activated for the first time this season.
