Shonn Greene Injury: Jets RB Returns For Second Half

Shonn Greene left the New York Jets' Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers early in the second quarter with a head injury, but after being looked at by trainers in the locker room, he was able to start the second half. To reinforce how healthy he was, the Jets looked his way on their first three plays of the drive, and he was able to pick up a first down all by himself (and the offensive line).

Greene ran seven times for 23 yards in the first half, so he wasn't exactly tearing up the field, but the Jets have long appreciated his ability to get upfield — he's rarely tackled for loss – despite his lack of big-play ability. In the Jets' Week 1 victory against the Buffalo Bills, Greene had 27 rushes for 94 yards and a touchdown. He had 1,054 yards and six touchdowns in his first year as a full-time starter in 2011.
