LaDainian Tomlinson limped off the field late in the fourth quarter after being tackled by Patriots “cornerback” Julian Edelman.

With a fast turnaround before the Jets’ game in Denver, we’d be surprised to see Tomlinson on the field Thursday. He confirmed he will undergo an MRI on his knee on Monday, according to

Joe McKnight will get a bigger workload if Tomlinson is out for a long period of time.

    I honestly hate to see ANY player injured, but it was almost comical to see the mighty Tomlinson taken out by a clean tackle from little Julian Edelman, a tiny receiver playing some cornerback!

    Yeah, because he displayed so much skill muffing that punt last night, right?

    i remember seeing this and thinking to myself, “wow, julian edelman just made a great tackle for a slot receiver… and THEN i saw LT was hurt. i don’t wish injuries on anyone… unless it’s LT! guy won’t ever win a thing, just cry on the sidelines

    Just in time, Lady Tomlinson doesn’t like cold weather.

    Nice to see Edelman making contact that’s not against the law

    Jets get their vet RB injured in garbage time against the Pat’s offensive players on defense. Icing on the cake for a franchise who always tells you they are better than they ever will be.

    Let the inevitable Edelman / Ronnie Lott comparisons commence.

    Go cry on the sidelines, Mr. I’ve never won anything in my life. Fake Toughguy.

    ….”you know me, I’m a classy guy.”

    It sucks to see LT go down. Watched him when he played the Bolts. He was alway solid for the team when playing and a threat. Hopefully it’s nothing bad.

    I hate to see a hall of fame running back being critisized by a bunch of people that haven’t accomplished a damn thing in they’re lives. Age catches up with everybody.

    Yeah, you guys are scum, you may not like the guy, but celebrating what could be the end of a truly spectacular career? But the Jets are classless, right?

    I hate the “classy guy” as much as any other Patriots fan, however I hate seeing anyone get injured. You do have to admitt that He was one of the great running backs of this era. I love it when we can shut him down, but also appreciate his level of play.

    I never thought I would say this but seeing him during the mid season I believe he wants to quit, I look at the sideline demeanor and we talked about it all the time in SD if LT doesn’t like his current situation he shuts it down. I was interested when he first decided to go to the jets and was excited to see him running as hard as he did last year, but he isn’t running the same way this year and unless this injury sidelines him for the year does anyone excpect to see “LT21” the HOF guy coming back to form?

    Im a Pats fan, but anyone who celebrates an injury is a douche.

    Edleman tackles better than most of the Patriots actual secondary.

    hate to see anybody get hurt but is there anything worse then having shonn green in fantasy and seeing this has been in there 50% of the time

    “I’m a classy guy” Go pout and let Rivers show you how to be a man.
