If Shonn Greene's injury lingers or, for any reason, the Jets will turn to LaDainian Tomlinson as its primary back in the regular season, the 11-year veteran would of course be ready.

"I think we just have to wait and see," Tomlinson said. "Obviously, I’ve been in a position where I had to carry however many times I needed to and be the full-time guy. I don’t expect that to be the case; but if it is, that’s what we’re dealt, so you just adjust."

Rex Ryan: "With us, we were going to put him in this other role, not because that it's time in his career to do that. This guy can still be an every-down back, but I just think for our team, it fit us better that he would be in more of a third-down specialist, a reserve back, and let Shonn take the brunt of the snaps. ... But obviously if something were to happen to Shonn on a regular basis, then L.T. would go in there, and we'd feel happy that we had L.T. in there."
