Breaking down the skill-position snaps on offense (out of a possible 57):

QUARTERBACK

Mark Sanchez -- 53 snaps, 91 percent

Tim Tebow -- 7 snaps (4 at QB), 12 percent

RUNNING BACK

Bilal Powell -- 25 snaps, 44 percent

Shonn Greene -- 24 snaps, 42 percent

Lex Hilliard -- 15 snaps, 26 percent

Joe McKnight -- 9 snaps, 16 percent

TIGHT END

Jeff Cumberland -- 50 snaps, 88 percent

Konrad Reuland -- 17 snaps, 30 percent

Jason Smith -- 13 snaps, 23 percent

WIDE RECEIVER

Chaz Schilens -- 52 snaps, 91 percent

Jeremy Kerley -- 44 snaps, 77 percent

Jason Hill -- 21 snaps, 37 percent

Clyde Gates -- 9 snaps, 16 percent

Antonio Cromartie -- 3 snaps, 5 percent

Analysis: Technically, Greene remains the starting RB, but they've shifted to a backfield-by-committee approach the last two weeks. McKnight's snap count was a season high ... Hilliard and Hill made their Jets debuts ... The Jets finally unveiled the "Throw to Cro" package ... For all the chatter about an increased role for Tebow, all he did was reach his average per game for snaps ... C Nick Mangold missed only two snaps after suffering an undisclosed ankle injury ... Our weekly check at LG: Matt Slauson 42 snaps (two at C), Vladimir Ducasse 17 snaps.
