While the Jets came out of the Redskins game with a win, they did have some injuries to report as well. LaDainian Tomlinson was on the bench a lot of the game, and then in the second half, Joe McKnight was injured and did not return. McKnight told the press that he hyper extended his right elbow at on a two-yard pass play at the end of the the third quarter.
Less than 24 hours removed from a fourth-quarter strip sack of Rex Grossman that helped seal the Jets' 34-19 win, Aaron Maybin had a seat in Rex Ryan's office, chatting it up with the coach.
The Jets have not made it a secret that Tom Moore is part of the Jets staff this season as a consultant — but what’s the end game? Moore has made it abundantly clear that he is there to “strictly observe” and has denounced negativity in all forms. He doesn’t like being negative? Well … there goes any shot of him becoming an OC in New York …

I think with Joe (McKnight), I’m not sure what the MRI showed, I know he had one and was on his way back. Again, it sounded like a hyper-extended elbow. We’ll see how it is. Obviously, if you’re a running back, you have to be able to grip the football and protect it. So that’s something. Jason Taylor played with a hyper-extended elbow...
