It hasn't been a great transition for New York Jets rookie running back Joe McKnight, who came to camp out of shape and has failed to make much headway since. But it looks like McKnight might be working his way back into the good graces of Rex Ryan and the Jets' coaching staff.
Ryan said McKnight has been working at cornerback and would be the fifth CB if the Jets needed to press him into service.
"He's been working that way. It probably won't be very multiple with him out there in coverage, but we've taught him a couple zones and I think we even taught him some man-coverage. He'll be all right," Ryan said. "He's been out there. He's a great athlete. He kills us out there."
