Abraham game-time decision

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Jets defensive end John Abraham is
questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Pittsburgh
Steelers with a sprained right knee.

Coach Herman Edwards said Abraham is still sore and would make a
game-time decision on the status of his Pro Bowl player. Abraham
was initially listed as probable to start the week after missing
his fifth straight game with the injury. Last week, Abraham said he
needed to weigh his options when deciding whether to play because
of his impeding free agency.

Though Abraham is still sore, Edwards expects him to participate
when the team returns to practice Wednesday.

"When a player can't go full speed you really don't want to put
him in harm's way," Edwards said. "It's best for John, best for
the team until he can go full speed he shouldn't play. He's going
to do everything he can this week to try to be prepared."
