Could LaDainian Tomlinson and Jeremy Kerley be ready this weekend? Apparently they worked out Monday, but were sore enough to stay off the field Tuesday.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday running back LaDainian Tomlinson and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley both suffered setbacks in their recoveries from sprained MCLs.
Neither player practiced Tuesday. Ryan said Tomlinson and Kerley each did some change of direction exercises Monday and were sore Tuesday.
Hmm .. stay tuned and see what they do later in the week – whether they practice in the next few days will be the real test. For now, it’s hard to say just what that means, but I think it’s fair to assume that the Jets might be 50/50 to get either of these players ready to play this Sunday. It’s bad news for the Jets if Kerley and Tomlinson can’t play … they’re both key third down options for the Jets.
