Jets CB Antonio Cromartie (knee) starts against Colts
Antonio Cromartie started at cornerback for the Jets against the Colts on Monday Night Football, one week after injuring his knee.
Cromartie left last Sunday's victory against the Cleveland Browns in the second quarter after sustaining a sprained left knee.
When the injury occurred, Cromartie was dropping into coverage and awkwardly planted his left foot. He subsequently fell to the ground without being touched and was carted off the field.
Despite the look of the injury, Cromartie avoided a serious knee tear as some had feared. After Monday's game against the Jets, Cromartie tweeted that his knee “feels good.”
2-0. I'm so happy to be apart of this defense. For those asking about my knee it feels good. On to Philly short week. God Bless goodnight— ANTONIO CROMARTIE (@CRO31) September 22, 2015
Cromartie practiced with the team last Friday on a limited basis after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday.
The 31-year-old played for the Jets from 2010–13, and returned this off-season after a year in Arizona. New York signed Cromartie to a four-year, $32 million contract in March.
