Found September 19, 2012 on Fox Sports:
New York Jets nose tackle Kenrick Ellis will be sidelined four to six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Coach Rex Ryan confirms Thursday that the backup lineman will miss at least a month after being injured in the Jets' 23-17 loss to Houston on Monday night. Ellis was filling in for starter Sione Po'uha, sidelined with a sore lower back. Ryan says safety Eric Smith will miss New York's game Sunday against Indianapolis after he sprained a knee during ''a scary moment'' in practice Wednesday while trying to knock down a pass. Tests revealed the sprain, and Ryan was relieved it wasn't worse. Ryan is hopeful center Nick Mangold (ankle), tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) and wide receiver Stephen Hill (hamstring) will play Sunday.
