PITTSBURGH (AP) — 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 gain.
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.
