Shonn Green Expected To Play Despite Bruised Ribs

New York Jets running back Shonn Greene practiced fully all week and is listed as "Probable" for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

Greene has been battling bruised ribs since a Week 11 game against the Denver Broncos, but had 13 carries for 78 yards and caught three passes for 12 yards in last week's 28-24 win over the Buffalo Bills. In a feature for the first time in his career,, Greene acknowledged during the week that he's a bit more banged up than he's accustomed to at this time of the season.

"I was always fresh, you know, because we had (Thomas) Jones and (LaDainian Tomlinson)," Greene said according to Conor Orr of The Star-Ledger. "It's not new but, just a different — you know, just playing hurt.

Greene is expected to start and once again carry the load in the Jets' backfield against the Redskins, who have the NFL's 18th-ranked rush defense. Tomlinson, who has missed the last two weeks with a knee injury, is also listed as "Probable" and is expected to give Greene the occasional breather on Sunday.
