"We'll leave him in there and let him play a bunch," Ryan said. "He looks fine."
Burress was forced to sit out team drills for several days because of the injured ankle, but he has been running with the first-team offense during the past few practices. He had only one catch in team drills entering Friday, and will be looking to quickly develop a rapport with quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Greene will not play as he recovers from what the team has called a "low-grade skin infection" on his right foot. He didn't practice Thursday and isn't expected to again until next week. The team said Greene is responding well to antibiotics and expected back next week.
"Nobody seems too concerned," Ryan said.
Greene had a callus shaved from his foot and received a local anesthetic to relieve the pain from that procedure. The running back then pointed out an irritation on his right foot, which was later diagnosed as a "standard, routine skin infection."
Team doctors suggested that Greene keep off his feet since swelling could occur if he stands for too long. The team doesn't seem concerned that the infection will spread among the players because of the cleaning procedures in place at the Jets' facility.
"You can eat off these floors," Ryan said. "We try everything we can to make sure that never happens. We've never had an issue like that and hopefully we never will."
Wide receiver Derrick Mason (knee) and backup quarterback Mark Brunell (calf) both were injured during practice Friday afternoon and were questionable for the game against Cincinnati.
Mason, who has been impressive in camp since signing with New York, walked off the field early in practice with a trainer. He later returned to the sideline but didn't practice again.
Brunell, who missed the preseason opener with an injured pinkie on his throwing hand, appeared to have the more serious injury. He gingerly walked off the field after hurting his calf on a rollout play. If he misses significant time, the Jets might have to look into signing an experienced backup since seventh-round draft pick Greg McElroy and undrafted free agent Drew Willy are the only other quarterbacks on the roster.
