The New York Jets may have suffered a devastating loss in their defensive backfield today, as cornerback Antonio Cromartie was injured during practice Thursday:
New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie went down in practice Thursday with a non-contact knee injury and was taken for an MRI exam, according to two league sources.
The results of the MRI weren’t immediately known, but the team is concerned that it could be a serious injury. One source described it as a hyperextension, but that hasn’t been confirmed by the team.
The Bengals host the Jets on October 27th, and depending on the extent of the injury, he may not be on the field when that game kicks-off.
The New York Giants were expecting big things from running back David Wilson entering the year, but he’s never been able to consistently get enough carries to find his rhythm, and the ground game has struggled mightily do to it.
Now, the Giants may not have him for the next month, and possibly the rest of the year:
A person informed of the injury now tells NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport the team expects Wilson to be out three weeks. There is a possibility the injury could end his season, pending a consultation with spinal surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles.
Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley says he’s not actively shopping safety Jairus Byrd, but does admit he’s open to trading him:
“Our focus right now is Jairus getting on the field and playing the best he can for the Buffalo Bills,” Whaley said. “We are not actively on the phone hammering out trying to look for a trade. By the same token, (team president) Russ Brandon would listen if someone wanted to trade.
“So if the phone rings, we’re going to listen. But that doesn’t mean we’re out trying to trade.”
