Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Antonio Cromartie is expected to play on Sunday against the Steelers, despite suffering a knee injury earlier this week.
The Jets have Cromartie listed as questionable, but it appears as though he’ll be able to suit up on Sunday.
This is great news for the Jets, as Cromartie is without a doubt their best cornerback.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Antonio Cromartie‘s knee injury is
“not season ending” and “not overly serious.”
- Mehta adds that Cromartie’s status for Week 6’s game against the Steelers remains in doubt, however.
- Rich Cimini reports that Cromartie has been diagnosed with just a hyperextended knee.
We’ll have more on Cromartie’s injury and status for Sunday’s game as the news is available.
- Cimini adds that Cromartie is undergoing an MRI and the team is “concerned” about his the situation.
Cromartie is widely considered to be the team’s best cornerback now that Darrelle Revis is playing for the Buccaneers. Losing Cromartie for any amount of time apply a good deal of pressure to the Jets secondary, which has had some trouble already this season.
First-round pick Dee Milliner has been bothered by a hamstring injury, which means Kyle Wilson and Darrin Walls would likely be asked to fill in for Cromartie this weekend against the Steelers if he was unable to go.
