NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Jets running back Shonn Greene says his infected right foot is feeling better and he expects to play in the team’s next preseason game Saturday against the Giants.
Greene missed the Jets’ 27-7 win over Cincinnati on Sunday night because of the ailment, which caused his foot to swell last week. The team initially called it a “low-grade skin infection,” but Greene specified that a corn between two of his toes got infected.
He was treated with antibiotics, but added that it wasn’t “as bad as everybody made it seem.”
“That’s what everyone was worried about, the whole Staph infection but it was nothing like that,” said Greene. “They just didn’t want it to get any worse.”
Greene was at the morning walkthrough Tuesday and said he’s pain-free and “good to go now” for practice.
“My foot swelled up a little bit and that was probably the worst part about it, the swelling,” he said.
Coach Rex Ryan says wide receiver Derrick Mason (left knee) and linebacker Bart Scott (left leg) will be limited.
