FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and center Nick Mangold did not participate in practice, but coach Rex Ryan says they are expected to play against San Diego on Sunday.
Cromartie pulled himself out of the Jets’ 24-6 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night, but says it was not serious. Mangold played in his second game since missing two with a high right ankle sprain. Ryan says Wednesday that both players will probably be limited this week, especially since the team just played.
Running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who faces his former team for the first time, got practice off — something the team did last year to try to keep him fresh.
Defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (knee) and defensive back Isaiah Trufant (hamstring) also didn’t practice.
