Shoulder injury likely to keep Jaguars' Green out vs. Raiders

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars likely will be without starting safety Courtney Greene on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Greene injured his left shoulder while tackling Tennessee's Chris Johnson on the fourth play of the Jaguars' 17-6 victory Sunday.

Coach Jack Del Rio said there is no timetable for Greene's return but added that the team is "going to give him a chance for it to settle down." Del Rio said he hopes to get Greene back "in a week or so."

Greene, a second-year player from Rutgers, has 64 tackles and an interception this season. Without him, the Jaguars likely would turn to veteran Sean Considine.

Considine, who lost his starting job earlier this season because of a hamstring injury, replaced Greene in the first quarter and played the rest of the game.
