The Jets have announced that RB Shonn Greene won’t play Sunday vs. the Bengals because he has a skin infection on his right foot.

GreeneStemming from that declaration, the big question would be: is it a staph infection, which, of course, would not be good news? The team, via the Newark Star Ledger, said it’s unknown because skin infections can’t be cultured.

Either way, the Jets feel confident they caught the infection in time and that the use of antibiotics should make the problem go away.

Without Greene at practice Thursday, LaDainian Tomlinson took the first-team reps, while rookie Bilal Powell continued to get reps as he competes with Joe McKnight for the team’s third RB position.
