FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York 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 adds that it wasn't "as bad as everybody made it seem."
Greene was at the morning walkthrough Tuesday and says he's pain-free and "good to go now" for practice.
Coach Rex Ryan says wide receiver Derrick Mason (left knee) and linebacker Bart Scott (left leg) will be limited.
