FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – New York Jets backup cornerback Drew Coleman and wide receiver Brad Smith are listed as questionable because of injuries before the playoff game at New England.
Coach Rex Ryan said Friday that the players’ availability likely will be determined before the game Sunday.
Coleman, the team’s nickel back and a key special teams player, injured a knee late in practice Thursday. He did not practice Friday and reportedly had an MRI exam, which showed no serious damage.
Smith was limited by a groin injury after getting hurt in the win at Indianapolis last Saturday. If he can’t play, Antonio Cromartie would replace him on returns.
Safety James Ihedigbo (knee/ankle) is also questionable.
