Jets' Cromartie will play vs. Steelers

The SportsXchange

New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is active and will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers even though he injured a knee in practice last week.

Cromartie was expected to play but was listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Cromartie did not practice Friday, a day after hyperextending the knee. Coach Rex Ryan said Cromartie's playing status would be a game-time decision.

The injury occured during a portion of Thursday's practice not viewed by the media. Cromartie said it was a non-contact injury. Ryan said the team was initially concerned that the injury was serious but an MRI later revealed only a hyperextension.

Cromartie, a two-time Pro Bowler -- including last season -- has not missed a game due to injury in three-plus seasons with the Jets.
