Running back Shonn Greene was not on the field for this afternoon’s practice. We’re still awaiting word on his injury.

As a result of Greene’s absence, LaDainian Tomlinson got the bulk of the carries with Bilal Powell and Chris Jennings pitching in. Fellow RB Joe McKnight (concussion) wore a red non-contact jersey and did not participate in team drills.

Plaxico Burress, who practiced for the first time Wednesday, wasn’t hobbled at all by his left ankle. He even made a nice one-handed grab over Darrelle Revis during the early portion of afternoon practice.

Linebacker Josh Mauga showed more flashes of brilliance, intercepting a Mark Sanchez pass that was intended for Tomlinson.

Nose tackle Sione Pouha (knee), linebacker Bart Scott (leg) and defensive tackle Marcus Dixon (knee) were held out of practice. Center Nick Mangold (stinger), guard Brandon Moore (hip) and backup quarterback Mark Brunell (finger) participated in team drills.
