    Rex Ryan: Greene to be Jets' 'bell cow' back
    Shonn Greene - RB - NYJ - Aug. 12 - 1:28 p.m. ET
    Coach Rex Ryan referred to Shonn Greene as the Jets' "bell cow" running back in a post-practice press conference Tuesday, and says he's "been really impressed with Shonn" in training camp.
    "Everyone knows the kind of runner he is, the kind of ability he has when the ball's under his arm," said Ryan, adding that Greene is "much better in the pass protection game." Ryan tried to save face by lightly praising LaDainian Tomlinson, but the backfield is Greene's moving forward. His improvement in blitz pickup also bodes well for a few more receiving opportunities.

    Shonn Greene - RB - Jets Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer "adamant" suggested Thursday that another fumble this week would land Shonn Greene back in the doghouse.
    Schottenheimer indicated that Greene -- or any other player -- would come out of the game immediately, if only temporarily. Considering Greene's performance last week, the visit to the sidelines would be lengthy in nature if he coughs up the ball once again. September 16 - 5:21 p.m. ET

    Report: Jets targeting 50/50 backfield split
    Shonn Greene - RB - NYJ - Nov. 10 - 10:18 p.m. ET
    Citing a member of the Jets' front office, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Rex Ryan's team is targeting a 50:50 timeshare between Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson for the season's second half.
    It's only fair with Greene severely outplaying Tomlinson over the past four games. "It hasn't gone unnoticed (by Jets decision makers)," says La Canfora of Greene's 4.80 yards-per-carry average to Tomlinson's 3.68 since Week 4. "To expect L.T. to finish the season the way he started it might be a bit naive." Greene was a first-half fantasy bust, but the Jets can't continue to keep him on the back burner when he's the best option in the backfield. Greene should be in line for 12-15 touches in Week 10 at Cleveland. The arrow is pointing dangerously downward for Tomlinson's fantasy value.
