Jets RB Greene leaves briefly with head injury

New York Jets running back Shonn Greene returned to Sunday’s

game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third quarter after

leaving with a head injury in the first half.

Greene had seven carries for 23 yards on New York’s first two

drives, but was removed with the Jets driving in the second quarter

after he was tackled by Pittsburgh’s Ryan Mundy following a 9-yard


Greene was replaced by Bilal Powell, then spent several minutes

on the sideline being tended to by New York medical personnel

before making his way to the locker room.

Greene was back on the field for the Jets on New York’s first

possession of the second half.
