On his final carry Sunday night, in garbage time of a 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots, LaDainian Tomlinson suffered an apparent knee injury. Tomlinson said he will have an MRI exam on Monday.
Tomlinson declined to specify the exact nature of the injury, saying he hurt his left leg. But coach Rex Ryan indicated it was a knee.
"I'm all right," Tomlinson said. "I'll get some more tests done (Monday) and we'll go from there. My leg got hit low and I grabbed my leg."
If LT misses time, Shonn Greene and Joe McKnight would likely get more work. It could be significant as the Jets have a short week, traveling to Denver to take on the Broncos this Thursday night.
