LaDainian Tomlinson Injury: Running Back's Return Questionable

Just when New York Jets fans thought their team was finally getting healthy an injury happened to one of its most productive offensive threats Sunday, as running back LaDianian Tomlinson left the Jets' Week 13 match up with the Washington Redskins with a left knee injury and is now questionable to return.

On the Jets six play of the day, Tomlinson, who missed the Jets last two games with a sprained knee, caught a pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez, ran 16 yards and was tackled by Redskin safety Oshiomogho Atogwe out of bounds. The replay showed Tomlinson's knee was clipped and the 32-year old running back was slow to get up.

Currently, running back Shonn Greene is carrying the rushing load. Last week, when Tomlinson was out against the Buffalo Bills, Greene rushed for 78 yards on 13 carries.
