Jets' McKnight a 'game-time decision' vs. Pats
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan says New York Jets running back-kick returner Joe McKnight will be a "game-time decision" on whether he plays Sunday in an AFC East showdown with the New England Patriots.
McKnight is questionable with a sprained left ankle suffered in last week's win over Indianapolis. He did not practice Friday, but told reporters Thursday: "I'm playing. For first place, I'm in there." Cornerback Antonio Cromartie will return kickoffs if McKnight can't play.
