FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and wide receiver Stephen Hill didn’t practice, and both might not play Sunday at Carolina.

Cromartie suffered a concussion during the 37-27 win over Oakland last Sunday, but finished the game. He complained of headaches after the game and coach Rex Ryan says Wednesday that Cromartie is still going through the NFL’s mandatory protocol on head injuries.

Hill, dealing with a sore knee for several weeks, sat out against the Raiders after it swelled up a bit.

“He was practicing,” Ryan said. “He’s gutting it out. He’s tough. He’ll do those things. But how much that’s helped him, obviously it hasn’t helped him a whole lot. We’re just trying to get him back to where he can really run and burst out of cuts and things like that.”

Ryan wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Hill could miss the last three games.

“I don’t know. We’ll see,” he said. “Obviously, we’d like to get him out here if he can play and can be effective. That would be the best thing for us, the best scenario for us.”

Tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. also sat out practice, getting his regularly scheduled rest day.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot, hamstring) and linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee) were limited.
