LaDainian Tomlinson Likely Out This Sunday
After 11 NFL seasons, Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson did something for the first time last week: he watched his team play on television, instead of watching from the sidelines. But when the Jets host the Bills this Sunday in what many are calling a must-win game, Tomlinson will be back on the sidelines… just not in pads.
Tomlinson has been suffering from a sprained knee and missed practice the last two weeks, including today’s drills. L-T is officially listed as questionable, but for all intents and purposes, he might as well be listed as “out” already.
After practice earlier today, Tomlinson was frustrated and upset about his physical condition, saying: “I’ve been getting treatment and doing as much as I can, and I’m going to leave it up to the coaches. I want to play, but it’s up to the coaches.”
With the absence of Tomlinson as a back-up for starter Shonn Greene, the Jets will turn to Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell to pick up the slack. Another injury of note is slot wideout Jeremy Kerley, who has also missed practice the last two weeks with, get this, a SPRAINED KNEE! Kerley is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision.
