Reports: Jets’ Cromartie Suffers Non-Contact Knee Injury In Practice
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Jets might be without Pro Bowl cornerback Antonio Cromartie Sunday against Pittsburgh — and perhaps longer.
Cromartie went down Thursday during the portion of practice the media are not permitted to watch. He was listed on the team’s injury list as limited with hip and knee ailments after participating fully Wednesday — with just the hip mentioned on the report.
ESPN first reported the knee injury Thursday night. The report, citing sources, said Cromartie was taken for an MRI exam after suffering a non-contact knee injury.
The injury is “neither season-ending nor overly serious,” according to the New York Daily News.
Coach Rex Ryan did not offer any additional information on the injury during his news conference after practice, but also wasn’t asked specifically about the addition of Cromartie’s knee to the injury report.
Through five games, Cromartie has 15 tackles and a forced fumble.
