The New York Jets have to be jumping for joy today. Their star cornerback did not suffer a torn ACL after all. The Jets announced today that an MRI exam on Cromartie’s injured left knee came back negative and that the cornerback is listed as week-to-week.
Cromartie has not been ruled out of the team’s Monday night matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Cromartie hyperextended his knee, according to a source informed of the player’s condition.
It’s a best-case scenario prognosis for Cromartie, who appeared to suffer a potentially season-ending injury when his knee buckled during Sunday’s 31-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.
