The New York Jets are preparing to take on the NY Giants this Saturday and Rex Ryan provided this injury update:
Rex Ryan – 12/20/11
First off we have bonus coverage here. You don’t get this every place, but you get it here. Alright, guys who did not practice today. Jeremy Kerley, he has an illness so he was sick. I think we sent him home. Joe McKnight, shoulder, elbow, did not participate. Brandon Moore with his hip. Guys that were limited, all three of these guys were limited with (a) knee. That’s Marquice Cole, Mike Devito, Eric Smith and then the guys that I’ll read off now practiced full. That’s Vlad Ducasse, knee. Shonn Greene, rib and shoulder. Ropati (Pitoitua), hand. And Mark Sanchez, neck. So there’s your bonus coverage. And with that I’ll open it up.
On if Mark Sanchez’s neck injury is the same as a previous neck injury…
I don’t know. That’s safe to say. It’s not a major injury because it’s not (one of) us that has the injury. (joking) But I think it’s a little stiff. He looked fine today.
On if Sanchez got all of the reps in practice…
Not all the reps. He’s being punished. (joking) So (Mark Brunell) took, I think, three snaps today.
