Draft Scout *Antonio Cromartie News
12/09/13 - CB Antonio Cromartie (concussion) was injured Sunday during the Jets' 37-27 win over the Raiders. The Jets initially said Cromartie had suffered a head injury but coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Cromartie was diagnosed with a concussion. Cromartie will have to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can return to the field, which puts his availability for Sunday's game against Carolina into question. Ryan said he didn't know when Cromartie was hurt, but he did collide with Ed Reed and Kyle Wilson during a 48-yard touchdown pass from Matt McGloin to Rod Streater in the third quarter Sunday.
12/03/13 - CB Antonio Cromartie was impressive as the Jets' emergency kickoff returner Sunday, when he averaged 31.5 yards on four second half returns after Josh Cribbs suffered a shoulder injury. But coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Cromartie, who has been battling a hip injury all year, probably wouldn't be an option in the likelihood that Cribbs misses multiple games with the injury. Cromartie has returned at least one kickoff in each of his eight NFL seasons and is averaging 23.7 yards per return on 43 career returns.
11/27/13 - CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) didn't participate in the portion of practice media was allowed to watch Wednesday. Coach Rex Ryan said later Wednesday that Cromartie, who aggravated a chronic hip injury during the fourth quarter of the Jets' 19-3 loss to the Ravens last Sunday, is shaping up as a game-time decision for Sunday, when the Jets host the Dolphins. Cromartie made the Pro Bowl last year, when he cemented his reputation as one of the best shutdown corners in the league, but he's been repeatedly beaten deep this year as plays through hip and knee injuries. He has two interceptions and 28 tackles in 11 games.
11/25/13 - CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) left the Jets' 19-3 loss to the Ravens when he aggravated the hip injury he's been battling most of the season. Cromartie said afterward he was in more pain than earlier in the year. He was in the midst of another rough game prior to exiting: While Cromartie had an interception Sunday, he also gave up a 60-yard completion to Torrey Smith.
10/11/13 - CB Antonio Cromartie did not participate in Friday's practice after suffering a non-contact injury to his knee the previous day and is officially listed as questionable.
"It was one of those hold-your-breath type deals," coach Rex Ryan said. "We'll give him every benefit of the doubt. If we think he's good to go, let's go, but if not, clearly we're not going to put him out there if he's at risk."
If Cromartie is unable to play, Kyle Wilson will start opposite Darrin Walls, with Isaiah Trufant playing inside in nickel packages. Rookie Dee Milliner has been ruled out with his lingering hamstring injury. Milliner said he believes he'll be ready to return for next week's game against New England.
