The New York Jets were concerned after cornerback Antonio Cromartie went down with a knee injury during Thursday’s practice. Later an MRI showed that Cromartie had escaped with just an hyperextended knee.

The loss of Cromartie would have been a big blow to the Jets defense which has been the key to their 3-2 start this season. If Cromartie is unable to play in Sunday’s game, against Pittsburgh, the Jets would be forced to go with Kyle Wilson and Darrin Walls at cornerback.
