PT breakdown: More balance in the backfield

Here's an unofficial breakdown of the playing time for the skill-position players on the starting offense. The first unit played a total of 21 snaps with Mark Sanchez at quarterback.

RUNNING BACK

LaDainian Tomlinson -- 12 plays

Shonn Greene -- 9

Comment: A more balanced mix than last week, when it was the Tomlinson show.

FULLBACK

Tony Richardson -- 9

Comment: Unlike last week, rookie sensation John Conner had no playing time with the starters. That could be an indication that Richardson's job is secure.

TIGHT END

Dustin Keller -- 16

Ben Hartsock -- 6

Matt Mulligan -- 1

Comment: No surprises here.

WIDE RECEIVER

Jerricho Cotchery -- 19

Braylon Edwards -- 19

Brad Smith -- 12

Santonio Holmes -- 2

David Clowney -- 1

Comment: Pretty much the same split as last week. Surprised Holmes hasn't received with work with the starters.
