Jets' Pace (toe) questionable, but expects to play vs. Raiders
"I don't even want to call it an injury," Pace said. "It's a boo-boo."
Pace, third on the team with 25 tackles and 3½ sacks, jammed the big toe on one of his feet when he landed awkwardly in practice Thursday. He wouldn't reveal which toe was injured, saying, "I can't let that out. Got to keep them guessing."
Pace said it was still a bit stiff Friday, but wasn't concerned.
"It's just one of those things where I kind of stayed off it a little bit today and gave it a little rest," he said. "I'll be fine."
Pace showed no visible signs of the injury, walking without a limp on the field and in the locker room, and said it didn't bother him much during practice. He said the toe wasn't swollen and X-rays weren't needed.
"It's like jamming a finger," Pace said. "You can't really do too much for it. It's going to be sore. Hopefully nobody steps on my toe, though. That's the biggest thing."
Also listed as questionable, but expected to play were nose tackle Kris Jenkins (back), wide receiver Laveranues Coles (thigh) and linebacker Bryan Thomas (calf). Wide receiver David Clowney, out since training camp with a separated shoulder, was also questionable but practiced this week for the first time since the injury.
